Welcome to St Edmund's Church

St Edmund's Church St. Edmund's is the Church in Wales Parish Church of Crickhowell in the Usk valley in South Wales, serving a population of just over 2000 people.

The aim of all we do can be expressed in the call to worship God and express the love of Jesus in the World. This vision is rooted firmly in the Bible's teaching about what it means to be a Christian today.

Please use the buttons on the left to browse our website and find out more about who we are and what we do. Do come and visit us - we would love to meet you.

Advent Prayer Calendar 2014

This Advent calendar as part of a challenge to 'Stir Up' the congregations to refresh their prayer habits for Advent. We generally make an effort to attend study groups during Lent but somwhow or other Advent gets overlooked because there is so much else happening. So try and set a few minutes aside every day during advent.

As you will see there are two prayer pointers for each day. I have tried to include people who are involved in every ministry I could think of, from the Bishop down to some of the most unrecognised tasks. Alongside those are every carol service in which we are involved and some of the charities with which we have a direct link.

This is a time of considerable change in the church as a whole, as well as change in our local area; a time when people will be looking to St Ed's for direction and example. We need to be supporting each other in prayer so I do hope you will take up the challenge

New Development Project - Church Lighting

St Edmund’s church is a well-loved landmark building in the heart of our community. It has served the town as a sacred place of prayer and worship since the early fourteenth century but, as you may have heard, the building is now in need of significant renovation.
