South Wales Camp

The Churches of God

The Camp is organised, run and controlled by the Churches of God. These churches are independent of the mainstream denominations, and have been in existence since the late 1800’s. Today Churches of God are present in each continent, and there are four churches in the South Wales Area – Aberkenfig, Barry, Cardiff and Mountain Ash.

We believe the Christian claim that life has always been about loving God and loving others but to begin a relationship with God, and to receive his help to love others, we need to deal with a problem. None of us is perfect. We all commit wrongs which form a barrier between us and God. We need God’s forgiveness. Christianity is unique in teaching that God himself came to earth to provide forgiveness for us. As Jesus, he died to take the punishment for all humanity’s sin. All God asks is that we acknowledge our sin, repent of it, and put our faith in Jesus, his Son, then forgiveness will be ours for ever.

The Churches of God in Aberkenfig, Barry and Cardiff each run a weekly youth club. Children attending Camp will normally have attended one of these three youth clubs.
