Owner description: An ancient church on the Great Orme, overlooking the sea and surrounded by a historic churchyard. The church is sometimes confused with the 20th chapel in the adjoining Great Orme Cemetery. The church is open every day from 1 April to 31 October and weekends, Wednesdays and bank holidays the rest of the year, weather permitting. Open air services are held on Sundays at 11.00 am from the end of May till the end of September (in the church in bad weather) and monthly services are held in the church over winter. Information leaflets and booklets are available in the church.

The church and cemetery are easily visit by car as there is parking. I expect it is also a tourist bus stop as well, though did not see any buses. I walked to the Summit and could not resist a diversion to the church, but you need to be fit and preferably good weather for that. It's a charming small rural coastal church. They have a book for writing down requests for prayers which visitors are invited to use. It must get quite a lot of weathering in Winter, judging by erosion of the gravestones, but the church has been kept in good condition, but please leave a donation to help them with maintenance.

Fascinating old church with a church cemetery and municipal cemetery adjacent. Interesting tombstone over grave of a motoring pioneer.

Well worth a visit if you are on the Orme. This beautiful little church looks out to sea and is open to explore. The graveyard is huge with some very majestic gravestones, look out for Beatrice Blore, a really interesting one. The sheep roam freely and it really is a peaceful place to be after the bustle of the town, Apparently open air services are held which must be wonderful given the scenery of the Great Orme and the sea - a lovely find indeed and a beautiful walk to reach it!

We heard about this little church when we took the organised coach trip around the Great Orme from the pier. Also it can be seen from the top of the Great Orme. We had already taken the tram way to the top of the Orme and could see this little church from there and decided it should be well worth a visit. Indeed it was a worthwhile trip to see it. The door is usually closed but unlocked, and the atmosphere inside most reassuring and restful, there are leaflets available from inside the Church which tells you some of its history. We spent some time outside walking between the headstones reading about the people who had gone before us. We saw the headstone of the only man who had been killed by the Great Orme tram, and you would be surprised how far back some of these headstones are dated. An interesting Church with a fascinating history, where sometimes they have the choir singing outside in the grounds of the Church - all in the leaflet. A place of quiet reflection.
