An appeal has been launched for the restoration of several stained glass windows at St Gwenfaen’s.  The restoration work is for the three stained glass windows from the William Morris studio; two windows on the south side of the church and the window at the west end of the church. Repairs are urgent as there is water coming in through, around and above all three windows which are inundated by the weather, with water freely running through the masonry.  The glass is also damaged and in need of repair.  Our stained glass conservators describe the windows as a ‘a delightful collection’ and markedly beautiful throughout’. The necessary permission has been given for the work to take place – estimated cost £30,000.  Please contact St Gwenfaen’s Churchwardens for further information: Susan Hanbury 01407 860569, Edna Aldred 01407 861388 or Church Treasurer Pam Naylor (07790 387571).

STEPS
We are very grateful to all who contributed towards rebuilding the steps at St Gwenfaen’s, offering a safer and easier way to enter our church.  The path from the top of the steps along to the porch has also been re-surfaced.

History

St Gwenfaen’s is on a raised site with spectacular views over a wide area of Anglesey, as well as the mountains of Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula. There has been a church on the site since 630 AD. The present church is the result of rebuilding between 1875 and 1879. Uncommon for a small country church there is fine stained-glass in all the windows. The windows above the altar are particularly beautiful.

Hall for hire

St Gwenfaen’s also has a hall, built in the Arts and Crafts style. It is available to hire. Please contact 01407 861388 for further details. Further details about the Church and the Hall can be found on our website: www.stgwenfaen.org
