The Parish of Pentyrch and Capel Llanilltern is a simple, joyful and inclusive Christian community. The worship, prayer and events we offer reflect our love of Jesus and all God’s people, near and far. Whatever your background, whatever you may be feeling, however often or infrequently, we would love you to join us.

“See I have written your name on the palm of my hands” Isaiah 49:16 


In our Parish we work hard to think creatively about our worship, so that it can hold the traditional and modern in a wonderful balance, thereby igniting a sense of God’s grace, joy and hope amongst us all. 


“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe you have received it, and it will be yours.” 

Mark 11:24
