St Teilo's Church, Llandeilo Fawr

Part of the Bro Dinefwr Local Ministry Area (LMA)

St Teilo's Church stands on a site where there has been Christian worship for nearly fifteen centuries, dating back to the mission of St Teilo in the sixth century. Our roots therefore go deep in Celtic Christianity and the Age of the Saints. We believe that as the church in this generation we are called to the tasks of spiritual renewal among God's people, and proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ in Llandeilo and the Tywi valley. We dedicate ourselves to the Gospel, to fellowship, prayer, worship and witness, and to the service of others.

Church History and St. Teilo

Exterior view of Llandeilo Church

Llandeilo's history as a known Christian centre dates from the sixth century. It was in the course of that century, probably towards its close, that one of the major Christian figures of Welsh history, Saint Teilo, chose to make it his base and is buried here

Church Tower, Tŵr yr Eglwys

Church Tower

You may have noticed that the church bells have fallen silent, this is because the structure that holds the bells in place is in urgent need of repair. The bells are actually in danger of falling through the floor into the Gospel exhibition space below! We have carried out a temporary fix to ensure this doesn’t happen.

We are now trying to raise funds to help us carry out these repairs and also to repair the clock in the tower, but we need your help. We need to know how important it is for our community that the bells and the clock are working, and indeed how important it is for our community that the church continues to be a thriving space. We may be doing a survey soon, but in the meantime, please let us know how you view the tower, the bells, the clock and indeed the church itself!
