St. Cystennin’s, near Mochdre

St. Cystennin’s church is in a peaceful rural setting, surrounded by woodland and fields and is on cycle and footpath routes. It is on Cystennin Lane – the road between Mochdre and Glanwydden. The present building dates to 1840’s, replacing an older church. Some of the surviving medieval glass is stored in Llandudno Museum. We are a small, friendly congregation who enjoy worshipping in this peaceful setting. You are welcome to join us for our weekly sunday service at 9.30 a.m. and for coffee and a chat afterwards.
