Pilgrim Churches are open all day, every day offering a sacred space for tourists, pilgrims and members of the community. Usually, at least six services are held every year to celebrate festivals and other special occasions, and the church is still available for baptisms and funerals. Weddings can be held subject to a special licence from the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Pilgrim Church Scheme is a shared initiative between the Diocese of St Asaph and the Representative Body of the Church in Wales.
The Diocese of St Asaph currently has four churches with Pilgrim Church Status and another two are considering this as an option.
