Woodland Trust Tree of the Year - Wales

The Pulpit Yew Tree at St James Church Nantglyn has been nominated as one of six trees in Wales for the Tree of the Year award.

The winning tree will benefit from a Tree Care award of £1,000, with any runner-up trees receiving 1000 separate votes or more, subject to the eligibility criteria , a £500 Tree Care Award. The award can be used to arrange a health check from an arboriculturalist, provide interpretation or educational materials or simply just hold a community celebratory event in honour of the tree.

“The beautiful church of St James in Nantglyn dates back at about 700 years, but in its churchyard stands something even older, a yew tree believed to be around 1,500 years old. The hollowed trunk of this ancient Yew has been converted into an out-door pulpit from which many a sermon has been preached - including one, rumour has it, by the founder of the Methodist Church, John Wesley. Local Welsh slate has been used to craft some steps leading to a seat and podium at the top which over-looks the surrounding churchyard. Despite the modifications, The Pulpit Yew remains in excellent health and is a shining - if extreme - example of the recognised association between yew trees and places of worship.” (

You can vote for the Nantglyn Pulpit Tree by visiting

Voting closes on the 8th October.

A very hot and exhausted Lay Reader arrived at Llansannan and promptly downed a bottle of water and 2 cups of black coffee! Even after getting home I hadn't re-hydrated and began the process all over again, BUT it was worth it especially when I discovered I had completed 17,000 steps!  The service of Evensong was lovely and I was pleased to note that I remembered almost all of it from my youth in St. Thomas's, Pendleton.

P.S. I'm the one in the middle with legs!!

Training Session

A very useful session

Mission Area Pilgrimage

On Sunday 2nd July Denbigh Mission Area joined with Aled Mission Area for a pilgrimage from Llannefydd to Llansannan. The Pilgrimage started with a time of prayer in St Nefydd’s Church before beginning the five-mile walk along the Pilgrim’s Way to Llansannan. The walk began from the back of the Church and after the initial steep climb the route levelled out along the Pilgrim’s Way. The views of Coast and Country were stunning. The walk took a couple of hours and cup of tea and a piece of cake was most welcome when the walkers finally arrived at St Sannan’s Church.  Llannefydd’s Mission Area Candle was carried from Llannefydd to Llansannan and lit at the start of the closing service as a sign of fellowship and unity. The walkers were joined by members of both Mission Areas for the refreshments and a service of Sung Evensong. Everyone enjoyed the day, the stunning scenery along the way, the company of fellow travellers and time to worship together at the close of day. 

Our thanks to Roger Mullock for arranging the day.
