As Christians in the Diocese of Bangor and the Parish of Bro Ardudwy, we can trace our history back to holy men and women who founded communities of prayer and service across the Ministry Area as early as the fifth century. These early Celtic saints – Tanwg, Tecwyn, Bodfan, Dwywe, and many others – are still commemorated in the names of our churches, villages and towns. A millennium and a half later, our mission hasn’t changed – but our context today is new and challenging. Our response as a Diocese and Ministry Area has been to commit ourselves to a vision of following Jesus with new energy and in new ways, and to do so by establishing and advancing three key principles and three key priorities.
