‘Coalface ministry’ brings gospel to Welsh valleys

Noddfa Baptist Evangelical Church trainees

A new theology school for Christian ministers at the ‘coalface’ has been launched in the Welsh valleys.

‘You may be able to exegete Scripture, you might even be a Hebrew Scholar, you could even be the most charismatic preacher on the planet, but if you can’t handle 2.00am phone calls from social services or late-night knocks on the door from the police… you are no good in the Valleys!’ says the Valleys School of Theology website.

The school was established by John Edward-Funnell, pastor at Noddfa Baptist Evangelical Church, who said: ‘We had over a thousand views on our website on the day of launch. Amazing for a Valleys school of theology!’
