caring and accepting through jesus
The worship effect was born out of Church on the move in early 2017

COTM encompasses  a group of people with a common interest in loving God. We are all on a journey together, with the Bible and Jesus as the guide to lead the way. We are all from a variety of different backgrounds and walks of life, sharing together the love of God.

We welcome everyone and accept all. We do not think we have all the answers, but are sure that the answer to any question, can be found in Jesus.

our core values

Toward a fuller and deeper relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

Disciples so that the body of believers can be equipped to live as God commanded.

By using the gifts that God has given you to serve HIM and the needs of others.

where and when ?

We meet at 4:15pm every Sunday at the Mission Hall in Neath.

Our services are informal and relaxed, giving you an opportunity to meet with God however you wish and you are free and encouraged to Worship however you choose.

Jesus is alive! Everyone is welcome, simply come as you are to meet with Him.


In 1999, whilst on a ministry trip in Africa, John Powell received three prophetic words from three unrelated people to start a church in his home town of Neath.

This not only terrified him and his wife Anne, whom knowing Johns character did not think he fitted the role of a pastor at all! But being faithful to what the Lord had asked of him, he came back from Africa and started a church in his house that very Sunday. The house was full.

Soon enough the church started to meet in town halls, school halls, anywhere that would allow them. From this, the name ‘Church on the Move’ was born.

After 14 years of moving from hall to hall, the opportunity arose to hold our meetings in the Mission Hall in Neath. A church that was built by the great Frank Joshua and pastored by his brother, Seth. This building is steeped in revival history and is a testament to the Lords goodness in our little town and across Wales. COTM has met there ever since.

Church on the move is not your average style church, some would say. It’s become less about having great services and more about having a great time as friends and family together in God’s presence. Anyone and everyone is invited into this family, no judgement, just love. Pure love.
