Wanting to find out more about the Christian Faith?
Please speak to any of our churchmembers. We do plan an annual run of our opportunity for disovering more - "The Way of Faith" - which seeks to explain our faith to those who are not sure alongside those thinking about confirmation and some old hands in need of a refresher! If you are interested in finding out more, any of the clergy will be pleased to speak with you.
Information on what the Church in Wales believes about some important issues (such as Work; Families & Relationships; Money; The Environment: Pain) may be found at
