This is the website of Garn Chapel, Bow Street, near Aberystwyth.
The chapel was founded around 1793 and has played a major role in the religious and cultural life of the area ever since.
It belongs to the Presbyterian Church of Wales
, and at present there are around 180 members in the chapel.
Services are held - in Welsh - every Sunday at 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Sunday school (Ysgol Sul)
also meets at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings during the school term, and any child over 3 years old is welcome to attend.
In addition to the weekly services, prayer meetings and sisterhood meetings (Cymdeithas y Chwiorydd
) are also held.
During the winter months, the literary society (Y Gymdeithas
Lenyddol) holds regular monthly meetings.
Great emphasis is also placed on voluntary work, especially through the endeavours of the Grŵp Help Llaw
(Helping-hand group) who meet regularly on Wednesday afternoons.
Community singing has always been important in the Garn, and the chapel has in recent years taken part in the annual united Cymanfa Ganu for north Ceredigion.
Christians of all denominations are welcome to join us in our worship and to take part in all other chapel activities. For a full diary of activities, click here
