 A huge 'Thank-you' to everyone who helped make the Christmas Tree & Choir Festival the success that it was.
The festival is where much hard work is put in - but also where friendships are forged and laughter and joy are the order of the day!
It was tinged with sadness this year as it was Rev'd Geraldine's last festival before she retires - but in her words "long may it continue".
So roll on 2018! :)




History: 
Prior to 1897 St. David’s was known as Maesteg Church. Records indicate that the church was erected in 1852 in stone in the Gothic style at a cost of £1,000.  The most probable date for the opening of the Church was November 1952.

On the west-end of the church are two tablets, fine specimens of cast iron work. On these tablets are inscribed the 10 commandments in Welsh – on one tablet, the first four commandments (duty towards God) and on the second tablet the last six commandments (duty towards our neighbour).



Services were originally held in the Welsh language but today they are conducted in English.

Various renovations and improvements have taken place over the years, the most recent being in 2009 when a sum of approximately £40,000 was invested. Work carried out included a complete electrical rewire, a new floor, removal of pews and replacement by chairs and making the grounds more attractive and inviting.

A more detailed history of the church from the period 1852 – 1952 is available for purchase.
