Hello, I am Andy Evans and I am a local boy from Neath who has attended Bethel Elim Church since the age of 7. I gave my life to Christ when I was 19 years old and my journey since then has had its ups and downs, however I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a thing.

I am the husband to a fantastic wife Laura Evans whom I have been married to for over 10 years. We have two beautiful children, namely Jaxon who is a very “busy” 6 year old boy and Georgie Mae who is a very “opinionated” 1 year old girl.

I have recently had the honour of becoming a Deacon at Bethel Elim Church. In my short time of being a Deacon I have found it a challenging role, however I have also found it very rewarding and it is an honour to serve God in this way.

I have a love and passion for music and singing! A passion that I am blessed to be able to use in Bethel Elim Church, Neath. I am part of the worship team that are going through some exciting times with God and it is a privilege to serve God in this way.

I believe in a Church that is family and community centred. When one of us hurts, we all feel it and on the flip side when one of us is “soaring on the wings of an eagle” we join in and soar with them. For that is what I believe Church to be, we are the family of God, we all have a part to play in that family, including you.

My baptismal verse is a verse that means so much to me and it’s a principle that I live my life by. It is Philippians 3 v 13 which says:

“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead”.

I am constantly reminded, by myself most of the time that I have made mistakes and I am not perfect. However if I focus on my mistakes then I will never be focusing on what God has for me. I realise that we are in a race and that it is impossible to run whilst looking backwards. Yes we may fall down, and may even have to take time out for a breather, however it is imperative we pick ourselves up and continue in that race.

I am looking forward to what God is going to do over the next few years in our assembly and we would love it if you became a part of that.

God bless you.
