Funerals & Churchyards

The loss of a loved one can be a difficult time, and the ministry area clergy are here to offer help, comfort and support. Funeral services are generally arranged through a funeral director but if you wish to discuss any matter relating to death or loss with us directly please contact the Priest with pastoral oversight for your local church (click here).

We have eleven churchyards in the ministry area. Some of these are still open for burials and the burial of cremated remains (subject to conditions). All enquiries regarding churchyards and the erection of monuments should be directed to the Ministry Area Leader on 01633 882551 or email: jeremydharris@hotmail.com.

Club Rock

Club Rock, our Sunday School, meets in Magor Church Centre at 10.45am each Sunday during Term Time whilst the main service happens in Church, which they join towards the end.

However on 2nd Sunday of the month when we have an All-Age service in Church and as such there is no Club Rock.

Schools

There are five primary schools within the ministry area:-

  • Magor Church In Wales Primary School
  • Undy Primary School
  • Llanmartin Primary School
  • Langstone Primary School
  • Glan-Llyn Primary School

The church has a presence at each school and members of the clergy team and parishioners are actively involved in leading regular acts of collective worship (assemblies) as well as acting as school governors.

Magor Church In Wales Primary School has a catchment area that encompasses all of the villages in the ministry area as well as the surrounding areas. Links between church and school are very strong and the Rector provides pastoral care to both pupils and staff. Collective Worship is led each week by a member of the clergy team and the children and their parents regularly come into church for school services.
