Val Dobie

Val, our faithful church secretary, is fondly called ‘Granny Val’ by so many here at LBC but, it’s only our team leader Chris Williams, who somehow gets away with calling her ‘boss’! Although she is Liverpool born and bred, Cardiff has been her home for over 50 years. Val, together with Sheila Burr, also co-leads one of our Home Groups. If ever you find yourself short of sweet related goodies, it’s guaranteed that if you visit her, you won’t leave…

A number of fond memories have been made there with many friends and family often dropping in for a warm ‘cuppa’ over…

Chris Williams

Chris, together with his wife Shae and their two very energetic boys Ethan and Seth, find it a huge privilege to serve the Lisvane Baptist Church family. As a couple they love to live the adventure of life in full each day and their passion is threefold: a deep love for and longing to see the global church to be all that she’s been created to be; that biblical discipleship be implemented on every level and to see mature leaders…
