St Mary & St James Church, Taffs Well

White Rose


The death of a loved one, a family member or friend, often brings with it a deep sense of loss, pain or shock. Grief is unpredictable and there are few words that help immediately.

A funeral can express a range of thoughts and feelings through readings, prayers and music that offer a chance to say farewell and a glimpse of hope in God’s promises.

Baptism at the font


The baptism of a child, sometimes called a Christening, recognises that every child is a previous gift, made in God’s image and likeness.

We would love to help organise a baptism with you, which is open to anyone at any stage in life.

St. Mary & St. James Church is located on Church Street near the Cardiff Road junction in Taffs Well. Originally dedicated solely to St James, it was built in 1869 as a school. It continued in this role until replaced by the current village school on 1879. It was subsequently converted into a church. After St Mary’s Church, Nantgarw closed in 1983, St James’ amended its dedication to St. Mary and St. James Church in commemoration.
