Who was Corrwg? Glyncorrwg Church, seems obvious, the church in the village of Glyncorrwg. But why Glyncorrwg? "Glyn" is fine, a glen or small valley, but why "corrwg", what does it mean. Two previous vicars have suggested that Corrwg may have been the saint in whose name the first church (or llan) here was founded. Rosie Jones, a member of the congregation, suggests that Corrwg can be identified with the well known Welsh saint Curig, and with Saint Guirec, the Welshman who became a Bishop in Brittany in the mid sixth century. Rosie has published Curig's story in a book available from our church.

Over the centuries, St John the Baptist church has had its ups and downs, with congregations soaring into the hundreds or falling to just one or two at festivals. As with many churches, we're currently seeing the congregation reducing, although there's still a good core of loyal members. But it's as true now as at any time that "your church needs you!" Take a look at the attached flyer, and if you know someone who might be interested to read it, print it and pass it on. We need a church in the Afan Valley, don't let 1500 years of Christian witness be threatened.
