The Church and Centre is supported by a group of active volunteers who welcome visitors, maintain the garden, help with administration, serve teas and perform many other vital tasks. If you have a little time to spare and would like to meet new people, have fun and contribute to a great cause, then please contact us.

Groups and individual pilgrims from Britain and abroad come to Pennant Melangell. Churches, chapels and numerous other organisations who wish to experience the spirituality and beauty of this place often arrange visits during the week. Some groups arrange retreats or quiet days or come to attend one of the daily services. Guided visits and talks on the history of the church can also be arranged. Groups are able to use the facilities of the St Melangell Centre, where there is a small meeting room which is available for discussions as well as for refreshments.

Mae grwpiau ac unigolion yn dod i Bennant Melangell o ledled Prydain thramor. Mae eglwysi a chapeli ynghyd â nifer o sefydliadau eraill yn dod yma yn ystod yr wythnos er mwyn cael blas ar harddwch ac ysbrydoldeb y lle.
