About the parish

Relatively speaking, the Parish of Llwynderw is a young grouping within the Diocese of Swansea & Brecon.  It was established in 1974, with two churches that were previously members of the then larger Parish of Oystermouth: Holy Cross and Clyne Chapel.  Its first Incumbent was a young Anthony Pierce, who went on to be Consecrated in 1999 as the eighth Bishop of the Diocese, and the current Incumbent is the Archdeacon of Gower.  Throughout its short existence, Llwynderw has continually striven to spread the Gospel throughout the communities that it serves in partnership with other Christians in the area.  It is a forward-looking Parish with God at the heart of its life and is now part of the Mumbles Ministry Area.

Our Welsh name, 'Llwynderw', is a compound noun that translates roughly into English as 'Oak Grove'.  This image is captured in both the Parish banner - a Celtic cross with oak leaves and acorns at its base - and in the natural vibrancy of the areas that the Parish serves: Blackpill, Mayals, and West Cross.

The current and former Incumbents of our Parish are:

1974-1992 - Anthony Edward Pierce

1993-2006 - George Edward Bennett

2007-2015 - Daniel Barri Evans

2015 to date - Jonathan Byron Davies
