St Ffraid

The Church / Eglwys Llan

Our Parish was founded in the 5th Century by Maelgwn Gwynedd thus the worship of God has been offered up here for 1500 years.We try to be a warm and welcoming church with a great empasise on music and singing. We are a bilingual church with regular services in Welsh and English and we celebrate the major festivals with bilingual services. With an enthusiastic Choir, Mothers Union and Banner Group and numerous fund raising and social events during the year we
are also a very busy and active church.We face the challenges of being a Parish on the border of Rural and Urban Area, close to the A55.We extend a warm welcome at all our services.

Mae Eglwys Llansanffraid yn estyn gwahoddiad gynnes iawn i unrhyw un sy’n eisiau ymuno gyda ni i addoli Dduw yn yr iaith Cymraeg ; neu i ddysgwyr. Croeso Cynnes iawn i chi
