Places of worship in Gower

There are many churches and chapels in Gower covering a number of different Christian denominations. Although Gower itself can be a very spiritualistic place, the local churches and chapels are well worth a visit. Many have a very long history and special stories to tell. Why not follow in the steps of the Saints, or choose the path that John Wesley chose when he came to Gower?
ALL visitors can be assured of a warm welcome. We look forward to seeing you.

 

"...be still, for the glory of the Lord, is shining all around..."

Christian Worship has taken place in Gower over a period of fifteen hundred years. Many of our churches, some of which are seven hundred years old, probably stand where earlier, simpler structures of the Celtic period existed. The dedication of churches to Celtic saints and the existence of sculptured and lettered stones of great antiquity reinforce evidence in the Book of Llandaff, where places in Gower, mentioned in sixth century records, can still be identified.

For centuries, these Gower churches were the focal point of small rural communities. Today, too few people appreciate their beauty. Whether your interest is in architecture, history, woodcarving, stained glass, war memorials, graves of the famous or of ordinary people, please come and see our churches for yourself. Children are welcome and wherever possible, activities will be offered for them.
