Gilgal has a range of outreach activities with an emphasis on engaging people in our community to encourage them to discover who Jesus is and what it means to become a believer.

The Church Evangelism Team organises open air meetings and events on John Street and around Porthcawl including car washes for the local streets, providing information sheets to local businesses and public areas,  supporting Trecco Bay summer services, involvement with the local carnival as well as other events.
At Easter we perform outreach at the bandstand which provides the opportunity for townsfolk to comment  on Martin’s graffiti board. Many a conversation has been taken up with Gilgal members to good effect.
We also provide Gilgal information sheets to hotels, B&B’s and campsites throughout Porthcawl, informing visitors of our presence and how to get to visit us whilst on holiday in Porthcawl. 

We team attend the Porthcawl Carnival in July which allows people to stop and chat with us, as well as providing the opportunity for literature to be taken. The ‘throw a wet sponge’ is always a popular activity, as well as the giant Connect 4 game borrowed from Nottage Primary school.

In August, Gilgal supports the Trecco Bay activities which are run throughout the August school holidays.

In September, the Elvis weekend provides us another popular event to engage with locals visitors alike in Porthcawl. 

Finally, the bandstand usually gets booked for our Christmas witness. Last Christmas saw us having costumes and donkeys for the children. It provided a wonderful opportunity for outreach to families and proved very popular.
