St Edward's Church

St Edward's Church is in the Parish of Roath, an ancient parish in the Eastern part of Cardiff, South Wales.
We are part of the Anglican Church in Wales, and welcome everyone to join us for worship.

Our Sunday morning Family Service is a Sung Eucharist (Holy Communion) and the music is led by a strong and active choir. It includes a Sunday School which caters for all ages from new-born.

For over 40 years the Church has recognised its special ministry to musicians and artists in the locality, and the St Edward’s Music & Arts Centre coordinates that outreach to the community, providing opportunities for amateurs and professionals to rehearse and perform in an auditorium of outstanding acoustic quality.

Forget Me Not Cafe and Support Group meets every Tuesday, 2pm-4pm.
