Inside the Chapel

 

Greenfield is a Christian Baptist Church situated in the town of Llanelli in South Wales. The chapel is ideally located in the centre of the main town, but also close to a wide residential community. We are within easy access from the M4 motorway for holidaymakers visiting the area.

Greenfield Baptist Church opened its doors for the first service of worship on 1 August 1858. There had been a need for some time for an English speaking Baptist Church in what was a very Welsh speaking town and community.

By the mid 1850's Llanelli was developing both industrially and as a thriving port town. There had been for many years an influx of English speaking families, mainly from the West counties of England seeking employment in the busy steel, iron and shipping industries of the town.

Two Welsh speaking churches Seion (formed in 1822) and Bethel (formed in 1841) rose to the challenge of forming this new church. 20 members, 12 from Seion and 8 from Bethel were released and from a very small membership the church prospered and reached a pinnacle of 600 + members in the 1930's. Greenfield Baptist Church is as active now as it has always been, with services and group activities for all ages! We hope you will feel a warmth of welcome when attending our services.

Facilities

Much effort has been made to aid those who might have physical, visual or hearing difficulties, so that we ALL join together in worship. During 2006, Greenfield chapel underwent some major construction alterations to help improve access for wheelchair users. A new external ramp was constructed from the main road entrance to give access straight to the hall. The removable of some pews at the rear and front of the hall has provided a spaceous area.

Further investment has been made with the installation of a T-Loop hearing system for those with hearing difficulties, and the continued use of the Powerpoint projection system.

Meanwhile, the Lower Hall, or school room, is used for many functions, including Sunday school, Junior Church, Bible study, catering, and much more.
The church has also adapted toilets and baby changing facilties on this level, together with catering facilities that can be used for a variety of events. Further improvements have also been made to allow access to the lower schoolroom from the garden area, and greater safety exits by the inclusion of new fire escape facilities.

The Building Fund appeal is always ongoing, and David would be pleased to hear from anyone who can assist in helping maintain these improvements for the benefit of future generations attending Greenfield.
