Chris Collins was our pastor between 2014 and 2021 and has now retired.

We are now in a period of ‘interregnum’ where we are looking for a new pastor to lead Woody. The leadership team of Elders, Deacons and Staff members will be covering pastor duties for the time being.

If you have any queries about this position, details will be available via the South Wales Baptist Association soon.

Laura Twell

Children & Youth Team Leader

“Hi! I’m Laura married to Gary and we have 3 children, Theo, Oscar and Olivia.  I Came to Woody in 1996 when I became a christian as a teenager then later led ‘XCell’, our youth homegroup.  I also qualified as a nursery nurse and worked as a nanny then in a private nursery for 11 years.  In 2015 I felt called to work as the children and youth team leader at Woody and started in 2017. I feel strongly that church should be a safe and fun place for children, I also feel we should serve and love families and children in our community. My role is to oversee the Children and youth work and our parent and toddler group on a Wednesday afternoon.”

Judy Davies


“Hi! I’m Judy and I’m the part-time administrator working in the office on Mondays and Thursdays. I am married to Steve and we moved to Cardiff in 1994 and we have two children. I have been involved at Woody since 1995 and have been a deacon and church secretary since September 2006. For general enquiries or Hall Hire you can contact me in the church office on Mondays or Thursdays.”

Luke Tattersall

Social Media and Content Co-Ordinator

Hey! I’m Luke, and I work part-time as the Social Media & Content Coordinator for Woody (sadly I don’t have a fancy badge yet). I’ve been hanging out with the church since 2018, and it’s been a place God used to help me grow in my Christian faith, and also the giftings He’s placed on my life.

You’ll find me working with cameras, editing, having a laugh, and connecting with people from all over the place. If you see me around, come say hi! I’d love to meet you, and talk about what God is doing.
