Information

The Anglican church at Betws Garmon was dedicated to the Welsh saint Garmon, traditionally identified with Saint Germanus of Auxerre (c 378-448) who visited Britain around 429, shortly after the Roman withdrawal. The church was rebuilt in 1841-42 by George Alexander. The building, which is Grade II listed, was transferred to the Church in Wales in 1933.

  1. Shots number 3 and 4 manage to convey an uneasy feeling which is exactly how I sometimes feel in churchyards. 10 and 11 are superb too! The place has an interesting facade. Strange to think of it being used as a builders store…

  2. Thank you for this article on our church at Betws Garmon.

    I can safely say that the spirit of Jesus is alive and well at St.Garmons Church.

    We have services every Sunday at 4pm with Holy Communion on every third Sunday in the month at both 11.45am and 4pm.

    Just listen for the bell ringing out over the valley, everyone will receive a warm welcome.

    • Mel, many thanks for stopping by and providing further information on the status of the church. (In an earlier revision of this post there was a little confusion between this one and the former church dedicated to Saint Garmon in Capel Garmon in the Conwy valley.)
