St Mary’s Church is the historic church in the village of St Fagans.  St Mary’s was founded in the 12th century.  Little is known of the form of the church then except that it would have been in the Norman style and essentially simple in construction.
Further development took place over the following eight centuries in three main stages.  First the change to the Decorated style in the 14th century, the addition of the tower in the 18th century and lastly the substantial restoration during the Victorian period including the major addition of the north aisle and vestry. in 1860.

CAROL SERVICE AND PRIZE DRAW

A wonderful evening at St Mary’s which started with our Carol service in church after which we moved to the village hall for refreshments and our prize draw. Well done to our guest singers and thank you those who worked so hard to provide the refreshments. And a special thank you to Derek Brockway our guest who read at the Carol service, gave an amusing talk and then kindly presented the prizes of the Christmas draw.  Fantastic evening. Well done all who helped.

Nativity Play

What a brilliant Nativity play presented by Junior Church this afternoon. All of the 18 children who took part were fantastic. Thanks must also go to Kate Sully and her marvellous team of leaders for all the hard work over several weeks, and to the parents who have helped the children to learn their lines. A great start to our seasonal service

Fantastic fun  as the St Mary’s  players presented Doreen’s latest ‘who dunnit’ Murder Mystery play. A packed Village Hall were kept guessing but eventually all was revealed. The ‘vicar’ did it!!! Well done to those table teams who successfully solved the heinous crime. Well done also to all helped out the evening on. Funds raised will support the ministry of St Mary’s.
