Eglwys Gadeiriol Llanelwy - Saint Asaph Cathedral Church
CROESO - WELCOME
Saint Asaph Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of St Asaph, one of the six dioceses of the Church in Wales.
Many of our Visitors describe the Cathedral as a ‘Hidden Gem’ - why not come and find out for yourself? Entrance is Free – donations welcome.
The Cathedral is the home of the William Morgan Bible and as such provides a vital link with Welsh culture and literature.
You can download passages from the William Morgan Bible using the Biblesearch facility here.
Saint Kentigern built his Church here in AD560. When he returned to Strathclyde in AD573 he left Asaph as his successor. Since that time the Cathedral has been dedicated to Saint Asaph and the Diocese bears his name.
The present building was begun in the thirteenth century and is reputed to be the smallest ancient cathedral in Great Britain.
Help us to maintain the Cathedral Grounds
In 2011 it cost £4000 to pay a contractor to cut the grass around the Cathedral.
We are making an appeal to buy the equipment which will do the job for a one off cost of £4500. Some people have already volunteered to do the work, if you would like to volunteer please contact The Dean.
If you would like to make a donation to contribute to the cost please make your cheque payable to St Asaph Cathedral.
As the money comes in we will update our fundraising bar so you can see how close we are to the target.
