The Parish of St Fagans and Michaelston-super-Ely

Welcome to The Parish of St Fagans and Michaelston-super-Ely

 

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.

Our Harvest Supper was a wonderful time this evening. We had every reason to be grateful for many blessings and particularly this evening for Margaret and Ann and others who prepared our meal. Sunday Sizzle in the morning then our Harvest Thanksgiving family service at 1030. (Brian and Barrie were particular heroes for helping out with the spare pudding!)

We said our goodbyes and thanks to Revd Ken and Devvie with some presentations after the service. They travel back to their home in Texas this week after spending the Summer with us whilst Peggy has been on sabbatical.

A photo of the cleaned War Memorial. The contractors – Mossfords – have to come back to complete some repairs to the stone steps but importantly the names are much clearer now. Thanks must go to; War Memorials Trust, CADW, Plymouth Estates and the Community Council who all gave generous donations.
