Upper Trosnant has one elder, Mr Phil Norman. He and our Pastor are the spiritual leaders of the Church.



Phil was born and bred in Garndiffaith, and has lived and worked in Pontypool all his life. In 2011 he took early retirement from Pontypool Park, and was elected as an Elder of Upper Trosnant. Phil’s interests include philosophy, music and science, and he spent many years trying to be an atheist before accepting Christ as his saviour in 2004. He was baptised at Upper Trosnant. 

Phil says: My role includes preaching and working alongside other churches. I see caring for the people in the congregation as an important part of being an Elder, and I also play keyboards in the worship band. I believe that God is doing great things in our town!
