Tremaen

St Michael’s


Tremaen ( Tremain ) came to us in December 2013. At first sight you might ask why. It doesn’t look particularly special. In fact it is of interest in many ways:

It was one of the very first churches in Ceredigion built according to the principles of the highly influential Ecclesiological Society, which preached the virtues of the Gothic style, deep chancels to concentrate attention on the altar and a prime location by the entrance into the interior for the font, where Baptism introduced people into the faith ( although the font is almost a millennium older than the building, being a 12th century survivor from a preceding building ).

We are lucky enough to have a very active local group at the church which is helping to bring it back to life, now that the programme of repairs supervised by Frans Nicholas (contractors – Welsh Heritage Construction) has made it presentable again. We know that there is more work to done inside but there are always challenges at every Friends’ church.
