Christian worship has taken place on Gower for at least fifteen hundred years, and in many cases
churches stand where simpler structures of the Celtic period stood. The oldest are over eight hundred years old, and most newer ones rest on even older foundations. A great number of carved and lettered stones and other remains connect us to their ancient past, and to the faith of those who worshipped there. The churches contain a wealth of fascinating features of architectural, historical and artistic interest, showing the high regard in which they have been held as focal points of their small communities. Today they continue to witness to the Christian gospel. In all of them pilgrims and visitors will be welcome, and will find the opportunity to learn more about God, to grow in faith and to continue as Christian disciples.
