Arranging a Pilgrimage

Groups of pilgrims from all denominations and from many parts of Britain and abroad come to Pennant Melangell. Visits are often arranged during the week by churches, chapels or other organisations who may ask for their members to attend one of the regular Daily Offices in St Melangell’s Church, or alternatively a special service. Guided visits and talks on the history of the church can also be requested. Groups normally use the facilities of the Saint Melangell Centre, close to the church, where there is a small meeting room which is available for discussions as well as for refreshments. The garden can also be used, weather permitting. The Centre has a level access disabled toilet. To discuss a pilgrimage or group visit to the Church, or for further information, please contact the Centre.

On Sundays between Easter and October groups are very welcome to attend the afternoon service at 3.00 p.m., with tea and cake served afterwards in the Centre or garden: it is helpful if larger parties can let us know beforehand.

To arrange a weekday visit please request a booking form. Groups are welcome to design their own programme to include any/all of the options suggested. If your preference is to have the day structured for you, just ask. Please state on the form what you would like from the visit. As kitchen facilities are limited visitors are asked to bring their own lunch, but hot drinks can be provided at the Centre.

Charges


As a registered charity the Saint Melangell Centre makes no charge for the services it provides, but we welcome donations from those who are able to give, so that we can continue to offer this ministry to all who need it. People often ask for guidance about the amount - £10.00 per head would cover our costs for a day visit, using the Centre’s facilities, during the week.

There is no charge for groups coming to the Sunday service: a small donation towards the cost of refreshments in the Centre is appreciated.
