The Parish of Skewen

Welcome. Croeso. Thank you for visiting our parish which encompasses communities with a total population of some 12,000 to the west of Neath in South Wales. We hope that you will find all that you want to know on our evolving website. If not please do contact us.


Almighty God, we pray for your blessing on all who share in the

Life and work of our Parish of Skewen.

We pray for all who gather together in your name in St John’s to worship and pray together.

Guide us in the building of St Mary’s Church and Community Project, to enable us to

continue to reach out as your presence in our community.

Be the guardian of this place and bring into it your

 Peace and healing presence.

May we welcome all in simplicity and joy,

To share fellowship and to flourish under the power of your love.

We ask this in the name of your precious Son, Jesus Christ

Our friend and saviour. Amen.
