Leadership at Aenon

Our current Lay Pastor, is Keith Evans

I was born and raised in Glynneath, I was academically challenged and was always happiest working with my hands; from gardening to meccano  and later playing the organ through to organ maintenance to keep it going – I was in my element!

I served a five year apprenticeship at Rheola Alluminium Works in the Neath valley and afterwards worked for 33 years at Metal Box, Neath.

I have been a church organist / worship leader all my adult life until having the call to Aenon in February 2011.

While on holiday the previous summer I received a text to say that the B.U. in the Cardiff office wanted to speak to me. I was just starting out on an hour’s walk and was praying earnestly to the Lord when I heard clearly, “When I open this door, I want you to walk through!”

To which I replied, “Yes Lord, I’ll walk through.”

The rest, as they say, is history.

My heart’s desire is to make Jesus known. I see that outworking in practical ways as well as preaching and teaching. Primarily in helping individuals to come into relationship with the living God and to experience the promise of scripture – Fullness of life in Christ Jesus.
