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.

Os hoffech weld ein cylchlythyr newydd, cliciwch yma:

Cefnogir yr eglwys a’r Ganolfan gan wirfoddolwyr sy’n croesawu ymwelwyr, gofalu am yr ardd, helpu gyda’r gwaith gweinyddol, darparu paneidiau a chyflawni nifer o dasgau angenrheidiol eraill.

Os gallwch gynnig ychydig o’ch amser, ac os hoffech gyfarfod â phobl newydd, cael hwyl a chyfrannu at achos teilwng iawn, cysylltwch â ni, os gwelwch yn dda.

Mae grwpiau ac unigolion yn dod i Bennant Melangell o ledled Prydain thramor. Mae eglwysi a chapeli ynghyd â nifer o sefydliadau eraill yn dod yma yn ystod yr wythnos er mwyn cael blas ar harddwch ac ysbrydoldeb y lle. Mae rhai grwpiau’n dod yma ar encil neu’n trefnu diwrnodau tawel yn ogystal â mynychu un o’r gwasanaethau a gynhelir yma bob dydd. Hefyd, gellir trefnu teithiau tywysedig ac anerchiadau am hanes yr eglwys. Caiff grwpiau ddefnyddio cyfleusterau Canolfan Y Santes Melangell sy’n cynnwys ystafell gyfarfod sydd ar gael ar gyfer trafodaethau a lluniaeth ysgafn.
