We are led by a team of Elders. These include our pastor and several other men in the church. There are many different areas where people can serve and lead in the church with the elders being responsible for the general oversight of church life.

Jim Webber

webbersI have always attended Chapel, beginning as a boy in Llansamlet. At the age of 19 I had an experience of saving faith and trusted in Christ as my saviour. Immediately I began attending Lonlas Gospel Mission and, after going to Bible School in Barry, was called to be a pastor in Brynmawr where I was for 7 years.

From Brynmawr the Lord called me to Newbridge in Gwent and after 22 years there I returned to Lonlas to be the pastor. I retired at the end of 2004 and I am now an elder in the church.

I have been happily married to Janice for 50 years and we have 3 sons, Timothy, Jeremy and Paul, 8 grandchildren and 1 great grandson.

I preach regularly in the local churches and sing in the Swansea Gospel Male Voice Choir.

garfield-patI came to Lonlas Gospel Mission in July 1961, when I married Pat. We have two sons and five grandchildren. I am originally from Gorseinon, but now live in Llansamlet.

I became a Christian in 1956, I was 17 years old, after hearing the Gospel clearly and understanding that God had sent his Son to take away my sin. I was brought up going to Sunday School and knew about Jesus, along with many Bible stories, but on that day I came to realise that Jesus had died for me to bring me into a relationship with God.

When I realised this, I asked God to forgive me and committed myself to following him for the rest of my life.
