Messy Church

Messy Church

Messy Church is a new and interactive way of ‘doing church’. It involves activities followed by a short celebration, then sharing a complementary meal together. Messy Church will usually happen on the Third Sunday of the Month at Creigiau Church Hall, starting at 4.00pm and lasting just over an hour.

Just to the north-west of Cardiff stands the rural village of Llanilltern. On the side of the A4119 stands the tiny church of St. Ellteyrn’s. There was a church on the site prior to 1862 but apart from the statement in Lewis’s Topographical Dictionary that it was “small”, we have no knowledge of its structure or design.

The existing Church was built in 1862 and was originally a Chapel of Ease for St. Fagans, and hence the Earl of Plymouth, Robert Clive-Windsor who owned St. Fagans Castle at the time. It was an Anglican chapel situated for the convenience of parishioners living a long way from the Parish church. It is one of the smallest places of worship within the Diocese of Llandaff. 

In the late 1990s, the church at Capel Llanilltern became the responsibility of the Vicar of Pentyrch.
