Unitarians in WalesThere are 22 Unitarian Congregations in Wales. Thirteen are Welsh speaking Congregations in Ceredigion , situated between Lampeter and Llandysul and towards Aberaeron. There are seven located in different communities in the South East of Wales - at Wick in the Vale, Nottage, Trebanos, Aberdare and Cefncoed as well as congregations at both Cardiff and Swansea. There is also a Congregation at Carmarthen - and in Bangor , the only one in the north of Wales.
Unitarian Welsh Department
All the congregations belong to the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches which is represented in Wales by the Unitarian Welsh Department Committee. The Welsh Department serves as a link between the London based Headquarters at Essex Hall and the Welsh Congregations and takes on such matters as outreach, publications, ministry training, youth work as well as acting as a link between the two Unitarian Districts, the one in South East Wales and the other taking in the Welsh speaking congregations in West Wales.
