OPENING THE CHURCH FOR PRIVATE PRAYER
Following completion of a detailed risk assessment Archdeacon Dorrien visited the Church on 1 July and commended all responsible for their very thorough preparations for opening the church for PRIVATE PRAYER. He has given his consent that St Twrog Church will be open on Sundays 10-12 and Wednesdays 2-4 until further notice. We will open on Sunday 5th July for PRIVATE PRAYER. Hoping that some of you will join us.
We welcome donations to Carmarthen Foodbank – it is our practice to donate items for the Foodbank by placing items at the foot of the font in church and by handing money to our wardens. As this is not possible at present we are hoping that those who wish to donate money to the Foodbank will continue to do so and we are offering to do this through the church. Financial donations can be made by on line giving but those who wish to can give them to Jean and Huw (275222) or Margaret and Peter (275479). In these unprecedented times it is even more important to support those who are struggling to buy food for their families so we look forward to hearing from those who wish to help in this way.

Where is St Twrog Church?
Welcome to St Twrog Church Llanddarog, near the National Botanic Garden of Wales. The Church was built at a high point between Carmarthen and Cross Hands and its distinctive steeple is a landmark for those travelling along the busy A48. It marks a place where worship and prayer have been offered since before the sixth century when Twrog, the local man of God, established his community – his ‘Llan’ – on this high point between the Gwendraeth and the Tywi valleys.
What do we do?
Worship, prayer, witness, service and fellowship continues today with a lively congregation. Our life and worship reflects the character of this rural parish which had strong associations with coal mining in the Gwendraeth Valley.
We invite you to visit St Twrog Church at the heart of our beautiful community, set among the green hills and valleys of Carmarthenshire. On most Sundays we hold two services, one in Welsh and one in English, for more detail please click here.
Where do we belong?
St Twrog Church is linked through the ministry of Canon Dewi Roberts to Llanarthne and Llangendeirne Churches. These Churches, together with seven others in this area are a benefice within the Local Ministry Area of Cydweli. It is a parish of the Diocese of St Davids in the Church in Wales, a Province of the Anglican Communion.
