The Gathering Place is a Methodist Church and Community Centre situated in St Athan. It was built in 2009, with the aim of providing both a church and a community centre in one place. St Athan is situated in the rural Vale of Glamorgan. It is close to the small towns of Llantwit Major and Cowbridge.
Whether you wish to have a safe place to bring your baby, toddler or child to play and take part in a variety of activities, book the hall for a party or wedding, learn along with the adult education courses, create with our sewing group or train with one of our fitness groups then we have something for all. We also have an active Methodist Church each Sunday.
We have a variety of clubs at the Gathering Place including Brownies, Guides, Rainbows, Karate, Kick Boxing, Zumba, Ballroom Dancing, Line Dancing and Slimming World.
We have a large hall that can split in half, one large meeting room and one smaller meeting room. We also have a day centre run by Hafod. Our kitchen is also available for use by all groups.
The Gathering Place is a modern venue, and can be transformed to suit a wide variety of activities and events.
