Coronavirus (Covid-19) guidance
Update: 19 October 2020
The First Minister has announced a Coronavirus Circuit Break ‘lockdown’ commencing on Friday 23rd October at 6.00pm and ending at the start of Monday 9th November.
This will mean that our churches and church halls must be closed during that period (with some very limited exceptions, such as continuation of food bank provision and to broadcast, without a congregation, an act of worship or funeral, whether over the internet or as part of a radio or television broadcast).
Giving by Standing Order has been a good way to make gifts to the church for many years, and it certainly is a more efficient and effective way to give to the church than using the old envelope system. It also avoids the health risks that will now be associated with using cash. We are grateful that you have chosen to support the Elwy Mission Area using a Standing Order but we are now asking you to change.
St Asaph Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Diocese of St Asaph, one of the six dioceses of the Church in Wales.
St Kentigern built his Church here in AD560. When he returned to Strathclyde in AD573 he left Asaph as his successor. Since that time the Cathedral has been dedicated to Saint Asaph and the Diocese bears his name.
The present building was begun in the thirteenth century and is reputed to be the smallest ancient cathedral in Great Britain. It is the home of the William Morgan Bible and as such provides a vital link with Welsh culture and literature.
