The Parish of Llyn Safaddan

As the Covid lockdown eases – April 2021

Two churches in the Ministry Area are now open for services – Llanfrynach Church in the Beacons Benefice and Llangors Church in Llyn Safaddan.  The service pattern is as follows:

  • 10-30am at Llanfrynach on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the Month
  • 10-30am at Llangors on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the Month

Beacuse of the need for social distancing we are limited in the number of people we can accommodate at either church building. So if you want to come to a particular service could you please let Kelvin know by phone (01874-676146) or email by mid-day on the Saturday before the Sunday service.  Under the current regulations, face masks will need to be worn so please bring one with you, although disposable masks will also be available.  Singing is still not possible at the moment.

We will of course be continuing to provide online and notice sheet services:-

MINISTRY AREA WEEKLY NOTICE-SHEET  We are publishing a weekly notice-sheet which contains a short service of readings & prayers to use at home – this can be found here.

MINISTRY AREA VIDEO SERVICES  Trina Lodge is producing a weekly video service for you to watch and join in with – these can be found here.

LIVE ZOOM SERVICES  We also hold live services via Zoom each Sunday at 9.30am. All are welcome to join these, but you need to contact one of the Ministry Team beforehand to get the link for you to join. Liz Bramley also holds Zoom services at 11-30am, on the 2nd Sunday of each month, for the Family Church group that used to meet monthly in the Henderson Hall – contact Liz for details.

MINISTRY AND SUPPORT  The Ministry Team is available to be contacted by phone or email.  And our congregations exist within our local communities where we must all keep in contact with and help one another as far as possible.

ENQUIRIES   For any enquiries please contact Revd Kelvin Richards, Priest in Charge.


We are a group of  five rural churches just a few miles north east of Brecon. We are positioned around Llangors Lake and set in the midst of beautiful hills. We aim to keep our churches open all the time and hope you will feel that they are places where you can meet the hospitality of God.

Together with the six churches in the Beacons Benefice we make up the Beacons and Llyn Safaddan Ministry Area.  The churches and their ministry are available to anyone who lives in or visits the area – not just people who attend church regularly on Sundays.
