We are a bilingual church with regular services in Welsh and English and we celebrate the major festivals with bilingual services. We have an enthusiastic Mothers Union and a very talented Banner Group. The Church of Llansanffraid extends a warm welcome to all.
11:15am Bi-lingual Holy Eucharist
Occupying the same site for over 1000 years the present church was built between 1839-1841.
A simple Romanesque basillica style is entered through a west door between two slim towers the South tower carrying a single bell.
Light and airey with some of the best Victorian glass in Wales along with two 14th century lights the original East Window (now over the west door).
In 1909 the gallery was taken down and a rood screen and organ were installed the pulpit re-sited and a new entrance to the vestry created. Light oak pews and an open oak roof gives a feeling of space and lightness.
When the church was re-roofed, the limestone ridge stones were found to date from the Middle Ages.
Yn dilyn trafodaethau rhwng Eglwysi Sant Cystennin Mochdre ac Eglwys Sant Ffraid Glan Conwy mae’r ddwy eglwys wedi cytuno i gynnal gwasanaethau Cymraeg ar y cyd ar y pedwerydd Sul o bob mis, gyda’r man cyfarfod yn newid yn fisol. Anogir a chroesewir pawb sy’n dymuno addoli trwy gyfwng y Gymraeg i fynychu gan gynnwys rhai sy’n dysgu’r Gymraeg a rhai di-gymraeg; ymestynnir y gwahoddiad hwn i’r holl gynulleidfaoedd o fewn ardal Cenhadaeth Aberconwy.
Following consultations between St Cystennin’s church, Mochdre, and St Ffraid’s church, Glan Conwy, both churches have agreed to hold joint Welsh services on the fourth Sunday of each month with the venue changing every month. All who wish to worship through the medium of Welsh are encouraged to attend and will be made very welcome as are Welsh learners and non Welsh speakers.
