Dear friends, 

I hope that you are keeping well. It has been another difficult week seeing the awful scenes from the Ukraine. This week the Archbishop of Wales has appealed to Churches to support the Christian Aid appeal for the Ukraine. Throughout Lent we will have a basket in Church for people to be able to make a donation if they wish. We will then forward these donations to the Christian Aid appeal. Please keep the people of Ukraine in your prayers.

Bishop June invites the Diocese of Llandaff to light a candle at 8pm each evening to pray for a peaceful resolution to the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

Thanks be to thee, my Lord Jesus Christ, for all the benefits thou hast given me, for all the pains and insults thou hast borne for me. O most merciful redeemer, friend and brother, may I know thee more clearly, love thee more dearly, and follow thee more nearly, day by day. Amen.

St. Richard of Chichester.


Welcome to the official website for the Parish of Gelligaer, in the Diocese of Llandaff. We are an Anglican Parish consisting of two churches, namely St. Catwg, St. Margaret. The Parish is situated in the middle of the Rhymney Valley in the County Borough of Caerphilly, South Wales.

Both of our Churches have a friendly and welcoming atmosphere where you can come to worship our Lord, Jesus Christ. We hope you will take the time to explore this site and discover for yourself the history, activities and life that make the Parish of Gelligaer what it is. We also hope that one day you will visit us.
