Woodville Baptist Church
Chris Collins – Pastor
“Hi, I’m Chris, and I’m married to Jan and we have two daughters – Laura, married to Ross, and Hannah whose husband is Mike.
I came to Woody in 1988 after God called me to spend, as I thought (!) a year starting a youth work. Since then I have been a deacon, and elder and now, since September 2014, full-time Pastor, which was not in my plan, but God had other ideas!
I believe we are to be transformed by God’s word (the Bible) and the power of his Holy Spirit. As we are in a deepening relationship with Him and with each other, we can be a blessing to those in our communities.
I feel that Woody is called to serve, influence and bless the Cathays area as we display the love of Christ in everything we do. This includes practical service as well as expecting God to move in Healing, new life in Christ and transformation.
I believe God is giving Woody a vision to build a community that is welcoming, sacrificial, faithful & honest with Christ at the centre. To achieve this, we need to be faithful in prayer, authentic in our worship of God, willing to take steps of faith and working to be an inclusive community.”
Sophie de Winter – Student Team Leader
Hiya! I’m Sophie, and I’m the Student Team Leader here at Woody. I came to Cardiff in 2011 to study, and Woody was the first church I visited. After getting involved with worship, Xodus, student cells, and eventually the internship, I knew God was leading me to become the Student Team Leader, which is exactly what I started doing in August 2016. My role is to lead the students into a deeper faith in Christ so that they will be holy people living for God.
