About Us: Our Services, Groups and Activities

Good Friday Cymanfa GanuLlanwenarth is a lively Baptist fellowship which seeks to blend the best of our Baptist heritage with ways that can speak to the needs of today.

We are proud of a past which has seen the planting of a dozen daughter churches throughout north Gwent, and celebrate that with our annual Cymanfa Ganu on the evening of Good Friday. This fills the chapel with singers and with song as we tell the story of the life and death of Jesus Christ through the best of our hymnody.

But we also seek to tell the good news in ways that will chime with the needs of today, as Sunday by Sunday we gather morning and evening to worship the God who meets with us in Jesus Christ. Details of our service times and the themes for each service are to be found in our Monthly Newsletter.

A Christmas Morning ServiceWe also seek to make a difference in our society. As part of this we hold regular midweek meetings. The building of Llanwenarth Baptist Church lies is physically in the centre of the village at Govilon. And in many ways the fellowship of the church does much the same in the life of the village. Many of our members play active roles in the various village societies, and as a fellowship we seek to serve our village community through our organisations.

We also run a Mothers' and Toddlers' Group, a regular pensioners' Luncheon Club, and a village Youth Group, named 'Travellers', for those at secondary school. Travellers Youth Group works closely with the Monmouthshire Youth Services, and acts as an Open Award Centre for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Travellers Youth Group - Parachute Games on Summer BarbecueDetails of all current meetings and activities are to be found in the Monthly Newsletter.

We also work with other Christian organisations as we try to continue God's mission at home and abroad. We have particularly close links with the Baptist Missionary Society, Christian Aid, the Leprosy Mission and the Raven Trust working in Malawi. More information about each of these organisations can be found on our Wider Links page.

We warmly invite you to come and join us in any of our activities - or just to take a look around our chapel and learn a little of our history.
