Who we are

About us

The Evangelical Fellowship in the Church in Wales (EFCW) exists to link in fellowship evangelicals in the Church in Wales, providing leadership, encouragement and support in witness and ministry. It also aims to bear witness to the biblical principles we uphold, and which form the Basis of Faith which we share with other members of the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion. It is a real and valued source of support for many as they seek to bear witness to evangelical principles in the life of the Church in Wales.


To enhance a genuine sense of belonging, of EFCW being something worth being part of.
To provide opportunities for fellowship and teaching, in a way that meets the members’ needs.
To ensure that all members know what is being done in EFCW’s name, and can have a voice in it.
Children’s and youth work
To maintain a meaningful input into children’s and youth work in Wales.
Church in Wales
To make a gracious yet clear biblical voice heard in the Church in Wales.

We should encourage the full participation of EFCW members as evangelicals at every level of Church life, encourage vocations to ministry among evangelicals in the Church in Wales, and affirm that we value our contact with Anglicans across the world.


EFCW was founded in March 1967 at The Hookses, John Stott’s house in Dale, Pembrokeshire. It developed from a group that met informally for some time as the Welsh member of the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion.
