The church building is open to visitors on Summer Sundays from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, entry is free.
See the hatchments and memorials of the Morgan Family (of Tredegar House), simple refreshments available.


There is ample roadside parking. The site is flat; a toilet with full access is available.  The communion rail is approached by a flight of steps; however a simple request will suffice for the sacrament to be brought to wherever is convenient.

Sunday services:

Our main Sunday service is at 11.15am; all are welcome.  We offer a Eucharist (a service with Communion) on first, third and fifth Sundays; ‘Matins’ (the office of Morning Prayer) on second and fourth Sundays.  Our worship is usually fairly quiet and simple (we sing some traditional hymns).
