August Services and activities at St Melangell’s Shrine Church and Centre.


Arthur Tyerman, this church’s Communications Officer, died recently and his loss is keenly felt here – you always knew when Arthur was around! He did all the printing for the church and shop as well as the monthly emailed newsletters, which helped keep so many people in touch with St Melangell’s. Arthur was a worship leader here and often read the lesson, preparing the altar for services and spending at least a day a week at the church and centre to welcome all who arrived. He took his faith very seriously, whilst also maintaining his strong sense of humour, and had previously been involved in various local churches and Diocesan activities, speaking out for what was important to him. Recently, he had been helping to overcome the difficulties being experienced with the Centre’s computer and phone line and with other organisational matters too. We are thankful for the many good things he contributed here and our thoughts and prayers are with Sheila, the family and his friends at this time.
Beudy Bach, at the Centre, remains a place for individual reflection or a quiet chat but it is now also an art space where you will find various materials for use by those who would find this helpful. Please leave it tidy afterwards.

The Church and Centre is supported by a group of active volunteers who welcome visitors, maintain the garden, help with administration, serve teas and perform many other vital tasks. If you have a little time to spare and would like to meet new people, have fun and contribute to a great cause, then please contact us.

Groups and individual pilgrims from Britain and abroad come to Pennant Melangell. Churches, chapels and numerous other organisations who wish to experience the spirituality and beauty of this place often arrange visits during the week. Some groups arrange retreats or quiet days or come to attend one of the daily services. Guided visits and talks on the history of the church can also be arranged. Groups are able to use the facilities of the St Melangell Centre, where there is a small meeting room which is available for discussions as well as for refreshments.
