The Beechwood Ministry Area welcomes you!

The Beechwood Ministry Area is a group of six Anglican parishes in and around Newport, Wales, and a part of the Diocese of Monmouth.  The churches we cover and communities we serve are:  

  • St Teilo in Alway,
  • St. Cadoc in Caerleon,
  • Holy Trinity in Christchurch,
  • St. Andrew and St. Philip in Lliswerry,
  • St. John the Evangelist and St. Mary in Maindee,
  • Ss. Julius & Aaron in St. Julian's.

Although not yet formally joined, we expect to see our merger from individual parishes into a rectorial benefice (i.e., one large parish) in late 2021 or early 2022.  Our Ministry Area Transition Team is hard at work putting plans in place. Wherever you are in the wider Newport area – or even if you're joining us online from further afield – each of us still aims to be the parish church you know and love ... just working together more closely with our neighbours.
