St Saeran

A hidden sanctuary of tranquillity steeped in centuries of prayer in Dyffryn Clwyd.

About this church

A medieval church which sits on a 6th century foundation nestled away in the Vale of Clwyd. Surrounded by trees and bird song the silence is enfolding as you soak in the atmosphere which sings across the sea of centuries.

From centuries old graffiti inscribed upon the door to the magnificently preserved medieval wall painting of St Christopher, the stained glass of the Lady Chapel to the plain glass above the High Altar a replacement for that which was smashed at the reformation, our history can be read as you journey around this church.

St Saeran’s has stood throughout our long history and is still here today offering an open sanctuary to any who wish to come.
