St Edward's Church is in the Parish of Roath, in the eastern part of Cardiff, South Wales, in the Diocese of Llandaff, in the Church in Wales, in the Anglican Communion, and we welcome everyone to join us for worship, for fellowship and in addressing the needs of our local community.

St Edward’s is embedded in the community, with many community activities that offer fellowship and encouragement to those who are lonely or becoming housebound. Forget Me Not Café welcomes those with memory problems or recovering from stroke and their carers; Gardening Club brings together people for health and wellbeing; Lunch Club provides a good meal and a place to meet new friends; Cardiff Stroke Support offers help for stroke survivors. There is also a Community Choir and many musical events that help to bring people together.

Details of everything that is happening at St Edward's and in the wider community may be found on the Events in Roath webpage, in the Newsletter, and in the Parish Magazine "Roath News". Musical events are on the Concerts page and the regular series of concerts is on the Coffee Concerts page. Current bookings at St Edward's are recorded in Google Calendar. St Edward's also supports and contributes to Roath Park Cytun (Churches Together).


Our Sunday morning Family Service is a Sung Eucharist (Holy Communion) at 11am. The music is led by a strong and active Choir, and the Sunday School caters for all ages. Choral Evensong is sung every Sunday at 7pm. More


Every Tuesday: 2pm-4pm. A friendly and welcoming environment, suitable for people with memory problems and their carers, also people recovering from a stroke or people who feel isolated and vulnerable. Donation from South Wales Freemasons. More


St Edward's Music and Arts Centre provides opportunities for amateurs and professionals to rehearse and perform in an auditorium of outstanding acoustic quality. 11 resident groups rehearse and perform here. More


In recent years there has been increased community involvement at St Edward's, and the number of people visiting and using the building has increased rapidly. St Edward's is currently working on a project to redevelop the porch, WC and schoolroom area of the church site to better accommodate the growing needs of the congregation and the wider community that makes regular use of the buildings.

On a Tuesday evening at the end of January, our friends from “GoodGym” visited us for the third time. They moved all the chairs from the nave and gave the floor a good clean, making light work of an enormous task, and helping to maintain the ForgetMeNot Cafe Project. They also cut back bushes that were protruding through the railings, preparing the way for our new Gardening as Therapy project. Thank you once again to our marvellous friends from GoodGym. Read their report here.
