Usk Ministry Area

Becoming the people God calls us to be


Welcome to the Usk Ministry Area website.

Whoever you are, whatever your background we welcome you and we look forward to meeting you in person.

We are a group of eight worshipping communities in and around Usk and the surrounding Monmouthshire countryside.

We are part of the Diocese of Monmouth in the Anglican Church in Wales and the area we cover stretches from Gwehelog in the north, down the A449 to just above Catash in the south, from Llandegfedd Reservoir in the west, across almost to Devauden in the east.

We love to welcome new people into our church and local communities and are committed to building God’s Kingdom of love and peace and to serve those who live, work in and visit this beautiful part of the Wales.

Here on our website you will find information about our regular services and events in our eight church buildings and we look forward to welcoming you to any of these.
Our church buildings are beautiful, tranquil places for quiet and reflection and are of considerable historical and architectural importance. Whether it’s stained glass, organ music, wall paintings or local history you will find something to interest you in one of our fine buildings.
