My wife and I attended the outdoor morning Sunday service while on holiday, and were impressed by the beautiful setting, the warm welcome, the thoughtful stewards offering blankets when a chill breeze started, the good variety of hymns and songs, the accessible liturgy, and the relevant and helpful message. Thoroughly recommended.

The church is situated at the top Great Orme neat Conway in Wales. The church conducts a Sunday service which in the summer is outside taking in the magnificent views over the Atlantic Ocean. Take a wander through the grave stones & if you are really lucky the ladies auxiliary will be there serving morning/afternoon tea. You will not be... More

We attended an outdoor service which embraced sharing Llandudno and the Great Orme between parishioners and tourists. We felt truly welcomed into the parish, even though we were just temporary residents

Just a short stroll down from the summit, we found this delightful little church. It is situated in a lovely graveyard offering spectacular views over the Great Orme & the sea. Very peaceful.

It was nice to see the Church and that it has open air services, and there are a lot of interesting grave stones in the grave yard next to it, such as that of BEE who was the first person (a woman in 1923) to drive a car up the Great Orme.

We walked up to the church along marine drive and then up to the church,what amazing views across the sea, on a clear day you can see the Isle of man.The church is small but so pretty, the stained glass windows are a wow factor. They have an outdoor service the last Sunday in the month. There are some very... More

A must see on the Great Orme. The religious seat in this area dating back to the thirteenth century with a cemetery which has held the great and good from Llandudno and beyond for generations. An ancient and holy place where respectful reflection is inevitable.

There has been worship on this site for hundreds of years and humans occupation here since the Bronze Age. The reason - well - primarily for safety and... More
