About the church

Pennard Church

We are very proud of our ancient church building. Parts of it have been there since the 13th century. The names of the clergy can be traced back to 1345 and two windows (in the South Wall) are of early 13th century design. There are many other interesting historical features including the musicians gallery at the back of the church. More modern additions include the memorial to the poet Vernon Watkins, who lived in Pennard and the beautiful Millennium window next to the pulpit, which depicts familiar features of the area. We aim to maintain the building as best we can. Visitors often comment on its peaceful atmosphere.
However, we are first and foremost a living church. We hold regular services. We have a Mothers’ Union, a Men’s Society, a Music Group and a Sunday School and we aim to care for each other and those around us in the community.
