Welcome to Llangyfelach Parish Church
Everyone is Welcome Here
Just Come As You Are
The religious site at Llangyfelach can trace its foundation back to the 6th Century. For over 1500 years there has been a worshipping Christian community here. The site is one of the major sites of St David, our national patron Saint, and was an important place of pilgrimage. Its round graveyard reflects the early monastic enclosure with its numerous holy wells and carved Celtic Stones points to this long history. It is one of three churches in Wales with a separate bell tower. The Church itself is located in a converted Tithe Barn.
The history and spirituality of this site is reflected in the rich variety of worship styles, which is welcoming to the community.
Due to the historical size of the parish (over 42 square miles) we get many enquires regarding family history. The original records are held at County Hall Swansea in the archive and go back to the 1600s. We are able to search these for you with the copied records held at the Church. If you need further help please e-mail us via our contact us link including as much information as you can. This search will incur a fee for church funds.
