Ffordd-y-Llan, Treuddyn, CH7 4LN

St Mary's Church is located within its own graveyard on the south side of Ffordd-y-Bont and to the south-east of the village centre. It is a nineteenth-century church on a more ancient foundation with clergy recorded on the site since the eleventh century. It was built in 1874-75 in a Gothic Revival style to designs by T.H.Wyatt (1807-1880) following the demolition of a double-naved medieval church. The church is constructed of roughly dressed stone laid in regular courses from a slightly projecting base, and slate roofs. It consists of nave with clerestory, lower apsidal chancel, north and south aisles, gabled south-west porch, and a bellcote above the chancel arch surmounted by metal cruxifix. The church is lit through lancet windows, circular windows to cleestory and west end. The interior, of five bays, is plain. Its principal interest is the survival, from the earlier church, of high quality glass in the apse where fragments of stained glass ascribed to the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries are now reassembled into the north and south windows.

December 2023

 

For those of you who have not met me yet, I am Jeanette Wilkes, the new Vicar of St Mary’s Church. I am also the Vicar of Christ Church, Pontblyddyn and St James, New Brighton.

 

I have lived in Mold for more than 4 months now and I am really enjoying it. I came to Mold from Kerry in Powys where I was the Vicar of 5 rural parishes for 4 years. I am really enthusiastic about meeting you all and working with you. In the next couple of month I am going to try to visit all of the groups that use the Hafan Deg centre and other venues around the village so if you would like a visit please let me know, and if you know of anyone who is housebound (whether they have attended church or not) please ask them if they would like a visit and let me know about them.

 

We are coming up to the time of Advent at the moment, which has, traditionally, been a time of reflection before Christmas, lately it has meant rushing around buying presents, writing cards, attending parties and it gets so busy that by Christmas time, we can get thoroughly fed up with it all. This December, try to have a few moments each day to reflect on why we celebrate this time of year. Family and friends spending time together and giving each other presents, can represent the birth of a baby thousands of miles away and thousands of years ago. So please join us at one or more of our services this Christmas- keep an eye out for the posters around the village about all the services – and the Christmas Festival!

 

See you soon

Jeanette
