Church and Community

St Michael’s is a welcoming local community church built in a traditional Montgomeryshire style, and retaining its attractive white wooden bellcote. The church has a tradition of ‘poetical parsons’, with a number of Rectors of literary note - most recently, the twentieth century Anglo-Welsh poet R. S. Thomas, who described the church in one of his poems as ‘brittle with light, as though a breath could shatter / Its slender frame’.

The main Sunday Service alternates between mornings and evenings, and usually lasts about an hour; it includes hymns, readings from the Bible, a sermon, and prayers. When we celebrate the Eucharist (also known as Communion, the Lord’s Supper or the Mass in some churches), we welcome any visitors to come and receive the bread and wine, or to receive a blessing if they prefer.

During the week, the church can be opened for prayer and reflection, or for visitors interested in exploring the legacy of R. S. Thomas, by prior arrangement with one of the Churchwardens on either 01686 650538 or 01686 650440.
