Welcome to City Church, formerly known as City Temple. We are a large, Pentecostal Church in the heart of Cardiff, the vibrant capital city of Wales, part of the Elim Pentecostal Church Network. City Church is a church with an international congregation from over 40 nationalities of all ages and drawing people from many different backgrounds.

City Church is a city centre church with a citywide vision. Started in 1929 after an extraordinary 51 nights of pioneer outreach meetings led by evangelist George Jeffreys, which saw over 3,000 converted and many wonderful hearings, The City Temple (as it was first called) opened in 1934 on a prime site opposite Sophia Gardens, and now just a stone's throw from Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.

What is our vision?

Bringing Hope In Jesus Name 

Our vision is to be a hope-filled multi-generational, multi-cultural church in the centre of Cardiff that is large enough to impact the city, the nation and the world and small enough to be family.

We will fulfil this vision by encountering God, as a congregation through passionate praise, prayer and preaching. Expecting that if we draw close to God, He will draw close to us; lives will be transformed; miracles will happen and the Holy Spirit will be poured out.

We will fulfil this vision by making disciples in many communities through intentional encouraging, equipping and empowering. Expecting that if we draw close to each other we will grow in relationship with God and with one another. Hearts will be strengthened, dreams realised and God-given hopes will become a reality.

We will fulfil this vision by sharing the Good News through sacrificial serving, giving and loving. Expecting that if we draw close to others, lives will be changed; Cardiff will be impacted and the name of Jesus will be exalted in Wales and the nations.

"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15v13


We are part of the Elim Pentecostal Church, a nationwide movement with over 600 churches throughout the UK, we are a growing church with an increasingly international congregation including many from Africa. We have a heart for the expanding city of Cardiff, for Wales and for the Nations.
