River Church Charity

There has been a church on this site for over 100 years… The legend goes that Evangelist Stephen Jeffreys went down in to the Sirhowy River, lifted a boulder and placed it on the ground saying “we will build the church here!”

In 1970 – A group of young men, lead by Pastor Paul Mercy,  headed north from Crosskeys… laid hands on the “tin shack” that was there and claiming the ground and re-planting a the church.

THe church was called The Gospel Tabernacle. And later became the Tab Life Centre. The name of the Church was changed in November 2020 to RIVER CHURCH WALES.

Over the years the Church has gone through lots of different phases and styles… but Jesus and the Cross have always remained at the centre of the message.


House of Joy is a Christian School and Community initiative, based in Kasala, Uganda.

The Project was set up from Blackwood In 2005, and is lead by Joy and Ronnie Maund in Uganda, who are members of our TAB Life Family when they are home in the UK. As a church we support Joy and Ron on a monthly basis. But also encourage our family and friends to support House of Joy on a monthly basis.

HOJ is a truly incredible project which as its tag line states, is “Touching Hearts and Changing Lives!”
