Sacred Wales

The Church in Wales works closely with the National Churches Trust who wish to give more support to church buildings in Wales, through grants, advice and promotion.  This latest initiative – to find our nation’s favourite church or chapel – is an attempt to raise the profile of places of worship in Wales.

They have created a list of churches based on nominations as part of a recent survey of those who care for places of worship.

Please do vote for your favourite on the list, even if your local church is not on the list!  The National Churches Trust will obtain some good publicity. The more votes which are cast, the more evidence that people care about our places of worship. Anything to raise people’s awareness of the special nature of our places of worship can only be good!

You have until 31 August to vote for Wales’ favourite Church or Chapel in a competition which is being organised by The National Churches Trust.

In our Diocese you appear to have a choice :

St. Cwyfan, Llangwyfan (Bro Cwyfan)

St. Hywyn, Aberdaron (Bro Enlli)

St. Seiriol, Penmon (Bro Seiriol)

St. Tanwg, Llandanwg (near Harlech, Bro Ardudwy)

St. Tysilio, Menai Bridge (Bro Tysilio)


and there is also

Capel Newydd, Nanhoron

Our Lady, Star of the Sea, Amlwch (Diocese of Wrexham)

St. Baglan, Llanfaglan near Caernarfon (Friends of Friendless Churches)


Have fun choosing!!!!
