Clergy Log In Church in Wales

Christmas Services

across the Diocese

An outdoor nativity, Christmas Café Church and carols around village squares are some of the locations for Christmas services across north east and mid Wales this year.

Churches in the Diocese of St Asaph will be hosting a variety of traditional carol services and more informal Christingle and crib services in the run up to Christmas and on Christmas morning itself.

Everyone is welcome, and services are often followed with refreshments for all.

Details of a few of the services are listed below (by county) with many churches using their own website and Facebook to keep their local community up to date.

The Diocese of St Asaph is part of the Church in Wales, an independent Province within the worldwide Anglican Communion of Churches.  The diocese is a community of 216 churches covering the counties of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Wrexham and parts of Gwynedd and Powys.  It looks after 51 schools, including one shared faith secondary school.
