Zac's Place began in the Autumn of 1998 as 'Zac's Place - Church in a Pub?', in Swansea. It is impossible to describe what Zac's Place 'is' in a few words. It's a church, it's a community, it's a beacon of hope, it's a chaotic mix of Christian discipleship, sitting alongside the marginalised. Mother Teresa of used to say, referencing the poor, "Jesus turns up in the most distressing disguises." That is a sentiment Zac's Place would wholeheartedly endorse.
Sean Stillman runs Zac's place. Many people from Sketty Community Church have helped with the work at Zac's Place.
Several of our members have close ties with this church in Dunvant. We share speakers and have done joint youth activities, for example.
The church that started Woodlands Church in 1998. Over the years Woodlands has run various joint activities with Parklands. Woodlands Church merged with Sketty Baptist Church in 2017 to form Sketty Community Church.
