Neath Methodist ChurchLewis Road, Neath, SA11 1DQ
Neath Methodist Church is situated at Stockham’s Corner, at the southern end of Neath. It is known locally as Windsor Square or “Penny-brick Church”, because when it was built, local people each donated a penny towards a brick to build it.
The Methodist churches in Aberdulais, Briton Ferry and London Road merged with Windsor Square to form the present church. Our aim is to be a Christian community, in the community, for the community.
In addition to the two services each Sunday(at 10.30am and 6pm), there are a number of week-time activities.
We have a very active Wesley Guild, who meet on Tuesdays at 7.30, for a full programme of talks, worship and social evenings.
A Pins and Needles group meets on Thursdays at 2.30pm, to make the banners which enhance the church building, and undertake other charity work (and to share occasional meals).
The Llansawel Art Group meet every Monday at 7 p m.
The church is ecumenically minded, being active in Churches Together in Neath and is very involved in the Christian Aid door-to-door and street collections.
We support Action for Children with similar collections, and through a group which collects by singing carols at Tesco at Christmas. Action for Children hold frequent staff training meetings at the Church
One of our members is an energetic worker for Fairtrade, running a stall each Sunday at church, and visiting schools and local organisations to raise awareness of fair-trade throughout the area.(NPT has now become a Fairtrade county).
