The Tabernacle Chapel is one of the two surviving round churches in Wales.
The youngest of our church buildings, the new St Peter’s was built in 1862 since the old medieval church on the hill overlooking the vale became a ruin. An unusual building with a spiky spire-turret and stripy roof and walls, its building was influenced by the Oxford movement in the 19th century. This influence is seen inside too with the vibrantly coloured window on the west and the stone reredos of the Last Supper behind the altar. Artwork and craft designed to evoke Biblical stories and to gently teach the faith. A tradition continued in this small but vibrant community of faith.
The churchyard is managed for wildlife, with wild flowers, gardens, a lavender labyrinth beneath a yew and our outdoor worship space, Capel Beuno, complete with chairs made from recycled pallets, fire-pit and river-table altar.
The doors are always open with a self-service coffee machine, fresh from bean to cup, homemade cakes and toilet facilities. So why not grab a cuppa and a cake and sit inside watching the dazzling light dancing through the fantastic stained glass, or relax outside to the sounds of the birdsong.
