“Showing God's heart and telling His story to all generations.”

Welcome to the Parish of Merthyr Tydfil St David and Abercanaid and our four friendly churches, St David's Parish Church, St Tydfil's Well, Ss Peter & Paul and St Tydfil's Old Parish Church.


New Life at any age

One way to celebrate new life is to dedicate that life to God. In the Christian tradition we call this Baptism or Christening. And this can be at any age, from new born to later life. 

It is a lovely personal ceremony that we conduct usually on a Sunday and to which you can invite all your family and friends.

If you would like to find out more about Christening for you or your child, please contact us.

Life and love are a journey that will sometimes bring us to the point of lifelong commitment to our partner. In church we celebrate this with a Marriage ceremony. 

At other times our commitment to marriage may have been enacted many years ago and now we want to reaffirm our love with a renewal of our wedding vows.  

Marriage and Renewal ceremonies can take place on any day. Please contact us for more information.

grieving & loss

The loss of someone we love is one of the hardest moments we will ever face and it nearly always feels as if we do it alone.

The church is very experienced in dealing with times of bereavement, grief and loss and has a dedicated, trained team to help you. 

Whether the loss is recent or a long time ago, if you would like someone to talk to, please contact us.
