Services

Most of the services are held predominantly in English though a Welsh Eucharist is held at Holy Trinity Church every Saturday.

Services at Holy Trinity Church are held continuously through the year. Services at St. Tudno’s Church are more seasonal with an outdoor (weather permitting) service every Sunday from the end of May until the end of September. A limited programme of services is held at St. Tudno’s during the winter months.

The Parish

The parish is an exclave of the Diocese of Bangor comprising the Great Orme peninsula and the part of the town of Llandudno to the north and west of a line running from the West Shore, along the railway tracks, through the railway station, and along Vaughan Street to the Promenade. To the south and east of this line is the former Parish of Rhos-Cystennin, now part of the Aberconwy Mission Area, which is in the Diocese of St. Asaph.

The reason for the Parish’s physical separation from the rest of its parent diocese is enshrouded within the mists of time. More can be read in the History of the Parish.

The Diocese of Bangor is one of the six dioceses of the Church in Wales, part of the Anglican Communion.

    I am researching on behalf of a family member from the USA who is due to visit me at the beginning of October. Her grandmother, Ellen Hughes, was born in Llandudno around 1873 to John Hughes (1848 – 1901) and Margaret- nee Jones
    (1846 – 1889). The only record I have is that according to the 1881 census, they were living in Bodlondeb Church Walks, Llandudno. Also, according to the GRO death index, there is a reference to a John and Margaret being registered under Conway.
    I was wondering if there is any way for me to be able to check Burial/Church records for the various churches within the parish of Llandudno?
    I look forward for your reply,
    Thanking you beforehand, diolch yn fawr,

  • Surfing the web I was very pleased to find Llandudno Parish. I was born in Llandudno, baptized at St Andrews church where I later taught Sunday School. I was sad to see that only Trinity and St Tudnos remain. As here in Canada many Anglican churches have been closed. I belong to St Michael and all Angels in Pierrefonds, Montreal Quebec, a small but very vibrant church but unfortunately with an aging population. our children’s Sunday School is very small. Reading your website you seem to have a lot going on. Blessings from across the ocean

    I wonder if you can help me. My G G grandmother Sally Terry Child who lived at Oakdene Mostyn Avenue Llandudno died there on 16/06/1911. I wondered whether there is any way of finding out if she is buried in the Church Yard. Thank you. Annette Eustace from Cheltenham

      Mostyn Avenue is in Craig-y-Don and in the (former) adjoining parish of Llanrhos or Eglwys Rhos. According to the burial record of Llanrhos parish which is available online at Find My Past, Sally Terry Child was buried in Llanrhos (Ss. Eleri and Mary) Churchyard on June 20, 1911. Unfortunately, the plot number is not annotated.

  • My wife and I came to Llandudno to visit her penpal, of 54 years, in March of 2009. We attended the 8:00am service with Ann Bate, a church member. My wife passed away in November, 2015, from cancer. I came back over to see Ann in April, 2016, with my daughter and her fiancee, and again attended the 8:00am service. Some of the members remembered our last visit. One of the ladies was looking for a pamphlet about the church, but was unable to find one. She did eventually and Ann sent it to, and it arrived today. Thank you Jennifer for your thoughtfulness. My wife fell in love with Llandudno, as did I, and there will be sweet memories of the places we saw, and the GREAT people we met, and I want to thank you for your hospitality and kindness. May God give y’all a special blessing.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I am a local crafter and mother of two beautiful boys from Llandudno Junction. Last year I gave up my full time employment to become a full time crafter. I specialise in personalised decretive candles and I am able to put any picture on a candle with any message.

    Over Christmas I was asked by a local church if I would put a image of their church onto a candle for them to sell in their Christmas fayre, which I did and they sold really well.

    I am exploring the idea of making unique candles specifically for churches, I think they would be a popular seller and the proceeds would also help towards the church

    I am able to do all kinds of candles, Easter, Christmas, all year round and also if you have christenings and weddings at the church I could also design keepsakes for you to sell. They come in many different sizes and are all made with much attention to detail and love

    Hope to hear from you soon, please feel free to ask and questions

    Many thanks and best wishes

    Catherine Rogers
