The church of Llanuwchllyn in the old county of Merionethshire is dedicated to St Deiniol. The church is not very old (1872-1873). It is a fine looking church but has been abandoned by the Church of Wales through lack of congregational numbers. "The Church in Wales diocese of St Asaph announced today that the parishes of Llanycil with Christ Church Bala, Llangower, and Llanuwchllyn have taken the brave decision to join forces - a decision that could result in three of the four church buildings within these parishes being declared redundant. The church councils of each parish have faced up to the reality of their respective situations and come to some difficult decisions. They have agreed that the cause of the Gospel will be better served in the Bala area if resources are concentrated in one church building. It seems likely therefore that the final services have already been held in the church buildings in Llangower and Llanycil with the likely final service at Llanuwchllyn church being a Plygain service on 4th January 2004." There was an interesting old communion plate in the church showing the story of the Temptation in relief and there was also a recumbent effigy of a mail-clad knight of the 14th Century in the church. I am unsure of the present where-abouts of these items as the church is now (2008) up for sale. Llanuwchllyn Church may continue to serve the community in some way however as I understand it does not have permission for residential use.
