Neil Tallamy, our Pastor, was born and bred in Baglan. He came to know Jesus as his Saviour and Lord at 18. After studying music in London Uni and the Royal College of Music, he then worked with London City Mission for a year before pursuing theology at London Theological Seminary.
Neil returned to Baglan after six years in London and taught music in a comprehensive school for another six years. In 2002, Neil and his wife, along with two other couples, founded Baglan Community Church. Neil met his wife Hannah while studying theology, and they have been happily married since 1997, and are blessed with five children: Jack, Isaac, Olivia, Lexi, and Ethan, making their life loud, busy, and fun.
Hannah Roach, our Youth Pastor, was born in Worcester, England, and has always enjoyed being on stage. After facing some difficulties, she found hope and comfort in Jesus' love and moved to Manchester to study youth work with The Message Trust. Her passion for community work led her to Swansea, where she pursued Applied Drama (using drama techniques within a community development context) at UWTSD. Hannah is happily married to Ethan, and they have two daughters, Luana and Bonnie. She's a fan of Eastenders and anything sweet.
