Tim Rowlands takes over this April as new head of Evangelical Alliance in Wales

The Evangelical Alliance has announced that Tim Rowlands will be joining the staff team as the head of the Evangelical Alliance in Wales from 1st April, supporting the church in Wales in its local mission and amplifying its voice into wider society and government.

Gavin Calver, CEO of the Evangelical Alliance, commended the appointment saying: “I’m delighted that Tim is joining us to serve and support the church in Wales. He is an experienced church leader who knows first-hand how the church can engage politically and culturally in Wales. I am looking forward to serving with him and seeing God move powerfully across the nation of Wales.”

Born and raised in North Wales, Tim is an ordained Assemblies of God minister. Over the last 12 years he has served as a senior pastor, heading up the Festival Church family of churches. As well as being a classically trained musician, Tim also has extensive experience in both local and national politics and is married to Emily with four older children.

Tim said, “I am excited to be joining the talented team at the Evangelical Alliance. I’ve always been inspired by the values and culture of the team, especially their bravery and kindness, and I share their commitment of making the good news of Jesus known. I think this is a significant time for the church in Wales – it’s a moment to grow deeper in confidence, and to fully embrace the opportunities in front of us. I’m looking forward to seeing more of what God can do with and through us as we step up and say yes to Him.”

The Evangelical Alliance joins together hundreds of organisations, thousands of churches and tens of thousands of individuals for the sake of the gospel. Representing their members since 1846, the Evangelical Alliance is the oldest and largest evangelical unity movement in the UK.
