Cross Hands Centre Of Mission

Cross Hands, Camarthenshire – part of IMPACT 242

A few years ago, a former curate had a vision of hope for the people of Cross Hands, a small town in south-west Wales. This vision included a community café, a soft play area and a safe space for people who would not normally step into a church building to come and worship. From this vision came the Cross Hands Centre of Mission.

Situated near the Black Mountains, there is no denying the surrounding natural beauty of Cross Hands. Cross Hands is the fourth most populated area in Carmarthenshire with a high proportion of residents under 45 and a substantial number of people without qualifications. The impact of COVID-19 has – as with most areas – hit most people here. There is a sense of an even greater calling now for this centre of mission to respond to the desperate needs of the community.
