A church has been on the present site in Gwernaffield since 1838, before which the parish was part of other ancient parishes. The parish now includes Gwernaffield, Pantymwyn, most of Cadole, and a small part of Gwernymynydd. We are now part of a group of parishes, known as the Bro Famau group, sharing our clergy with Cilcain, Llanferres, Nannerch and Rhydymwyn. Our purpose is to praise and worship God, to offer support to all in the community, and to one another in our Christian lives. We welcome particularly younger members at our popular Family Praise in the Church Hall every 4th Sunday, and also at our Family Service every 2nd Sunday. We work closely with Ysgol Y Waun Primary School, and local youth organisations, e.g. Brownies Churches which are part of the Anglican Communion traditionally regard all who are baptised (christened) as full members of the Church. Around 50 people are currently involved in the regular weekly worship at the church. There are special Lenten, Easter, Harvest and Christmas Services, as well as the Annual Remembrance Day Service.
Pen y Fron Chapel, Pantymwyn (Follow Pen y Fron Road for 1 mile, at the foot of a narrow, steep hill, the chapel is on the right hand side. Parking available.) Left for derelict, a group of worshippers have refurbished and redeveloped the community of this independent, Chapel, based on the evangelical and Methodist worship. Pen-y-fron chapel was built in 1825 but, by the 1960s, had lost most of its followers, like so many of the other chapels. By 1991 it was closed and derelict. Members of four families, whose relatives had been keen chapel supporters in earlier generations, took decisive action and rebuilt the chapel themselves. It is now a place of worship once more, holding regular monthly services. The Chapel also organises Soup Lunches in the Village Hall, alternate Tuesdays. Special events may include celebrations of St David's Day, Good Friday, Jazz Cafe, Barn Dancing
