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 until very recently, we celebrated that with our annual Cymanfa Ganu on the evening of Good Friday. This filled the chapel with singers and with song as we told the story of the life and death of Jesus Christ through the best of our hymnody.

But we still 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. The Newsletter also includes details of our midweek meetings, through which we seek to grow in the understanding and practice of following Jesus as Lord. .

A Christmas Morning ServiceWe also seek to make a difference in our society. 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 have also run a Mothers' and Toddlers' Group, meeting weekly in termtime, and a regular pensioners' Luncheon Club, which meets fortnightly on Wednesdays (except for a break during August holidays) although we have postponed these presently owing to CoVid restrictions.

Details 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 and the Leprosy Mission. 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.
