About Us

Cardiff International Church (CIC) is a home and family for those who are studying, working or living in Cardiff. The majority of CIC family members are university students (e.g. Cardiff Univ, Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Univ of S. Wales, Cardiff Metropolitan Univ etc) from various countries.16486858_1528438570518455_2172838608838447328_o

As one family in the Lord CIC members learn and grow together, caring for and supporting one another.

As a Word-based, Christ-centred, Spirit-filled & led and Missional church CIC strives to stand firm on the Word of God and be led by the Holy Spirit for His mission to Wales and abroad, trying to be balanced and healthy theologically and spiritually.

Since the beginning of CIC the Lord has clearly taught us about His ownership and leadership of CIC, being absolutely faithful to us in every way.

CIC has been blessed having a number of committed church family members, faithfully and sacrificially serving in unity. We are thankful that many, who served with us, are now serving His church around the world, although we miss them very much.

He also desires to build the bridge between the UK (Wales) church and the Korean church for their shared mission (website: u-kmission.org).

CIC appreciates prayers and support of churches and Christian friends for our mission to Wales and to the nations.
