History and Heritage

St. Michael and All Angels Church
Trebanos

Saint Michael and All Angels Church lies on the main road through Trebanos. These days it seems to go by the more simple title of "Saint Michael's Church", but in the historical information we will be relaying here it generally is termed "Saint Michael and All Angels' Church".



From the Llais

The Llais newspaper had always included a round-up of happenings at local churches and chapels, even when these were not part of any particular story. Sometimes they advertised forthcoming events, and at other times who was preaching, or had preached there recently.

From the South Wales Voice 27th September 1941:-

ST. MICHAEL'S GUILD The members of St. Michael and All Angels' Church Young Peoples Guild held a social at the Church Hall last Wednesday evening to re-open the Winter season. There was a large gathering, who partook of an enjoyable repast. The lady members presided at the tables. The Rev H. Wyndham Lewis, curate, presided, and an interesting programme was presented. Officials of the guild are: president, Rev H.W. Lewis; secretary and treasurer, Miss L. Lucille Blackmore.
