Wales has known the Orthodox Christian Faith since it first arrived on these shores at least seventeen hundred years ago. All of its great saints - from David to Teilo to Deiniol to Winifred - are saints of the Orthodox Church, as Orthodoxy is the faith they proclaimed in life and death. To be Orthodox in Wales today is to be one with those who planted the holy seeds and consecrated this ancient land.
The Orthodox Church has a thriving presence in Wales today, with well-established parishes in Blaenau Ffestiniog and Cardiff, together with additional new parishes in Cardiff, Swansea, and Lampeter. It has never been easier to get to know the ancient faith of Wales, and you are invited to get in contact with any of us in order to learn more.
