This year marks 100 years of the Church in Wales. It will be celebrated with a special themed year of faith, spirituality and community. As a Diocese, we will embark on a Year of Pilgrimage and discover how faith makes a difference to our communities.

Whether church has always played an important part in your life or you are at the beginning of your faith journey, our Year of Pilgrimage can help you further explore your spirituality. Take part in a local pilgrimage or join in worship and celebration – it’s up to you. See more information in the latest Croeso magazine or at
