The Building Project

Building for the future at Bryn-y-groes

Extending our work through Increased flexibility and capacity

The Bryn-y-groes building project from EMW/MEC on Vimeo.

We are proposing to redevelop the centre by constructing a number of en-suite facilities in the existing bedrooms in the main building and demolishing the old annex building, which is at the end of its useful life, and building a new block in its place. This work is essential to ensure the future of Bryn-y-groes and to increase its capacity and flexibility, thereby extending the work of proclaiming the gospel and supporting Christians in Wales and beyond.

Building the new block will allow us to:

  • Offer respite and study opportunities to Christian workers in the new purpose built flat;
  • Increase our capacity to offer ground floor accommodation to disabled users of the centre;
  • Provide the option of having two groups using the centre at the same time;
  • Offer cheaper options to smaller churches and groups (including self-catering options);
  • Providing better facilities to existing users;
  • Increase the capacity of the centre for camps and conferences.

‘this Development will ensure that we can continue to serve Gospel work in Wales and beyond’

The plans for the new block in detail:

Ground floor facilities

  • Self-contained flat and kitchen
  • Disabled access en-suite bedroom
  • Lounge/meeting room
  • kitchen
  • Toilets

Top floor facilities

  • Seven fully en-suite bedrooms sleeping up to 40 people

The cost

  • £493,000

Preferred start date

  • September 2018


…providing a flat to be used as a retreat for Gospel workers will be so valuable’
