Introducing the AECW

AECW is a fellowship of churches in Wales which seeks to promote co-operation in fellowship and witness between all churches that embrace the evangelical faith. The passion of AECW churches is to proclaim the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to Wales and the world. We are praying that the Lord will bless all Gospel churches and pour out his Holy Spirit on his people and on the nations. Read more about the AECW here...
