The Bro Cyngar Ministry Area is a group of Anglican churches which is part of the Church in Wales in the Diocese of Bangor. The title ‘Ministry Area’ reflects the church’s understanding that ministry is the responsibility of all of God’s people. We are a group of seven congregations united together to form one parish located in the beautiful rural heart of Anglesey. It encompasses the villages of Talwrn, Llanddyfnan, Rhosmeirch, Tregaean, Llangwyllog, Llynfaes, Trefor, Gwalchmai, Bodffordd, Rhostrehwfa, and the town of Llangefni.
Here you will find information about Bro Cyngar, its service times, a little about the history of each church, location maps, who to contact, how to book weddings and baptisms (christenings), and other useful information.
Our vicar, Rev. Steve Leyland heads up a Leadership Team consisting of Worship Leaders, Lay Eucharistic Minsters, Lay Readers, and retired Clergy.
The services reflect the variety of the Anglican family. Most of the churches in Bro Cyngar have either a traditional Holy Communion or Morning Prayer on a Sunday morning – although we are also starting to hold occasional family services. These are livelier, less liturgical services, with a mixture of the best traditional hymns and modern choruses. We have a midweek communion every week and a fortnightly service of Evening Prayer. Baptisms are usually held at 2:30 on Sunday afternoons.
To reflect the linguistic culture of this area, most services are fully bilingual with material printed in both languages. There are also a few services that are completely in Welsh or completely in English. The details of our service times make clear which is which.
Whichever service you choose, you will find a warm welcome from leaders and congregation alike.
Whether you are visiting, resident in the area, or just curious, we look forward to meeting you.
