Snailbeach Chapel and graveyard lies on the Lower North-Western slopes of the Stiperstones ridge. It was built on land belonging to the Marquis of Bath and opened for Worship in August 1876 at an estimated cost of £480 to William Evans of Yockleton.
The Sunday School which was built onto the Church in 1970 is undergoing refurbishment to better its facilities and accessibility and will be followed by a re-opening Ceremony.
It was good to welcome the Rev Andrew Champley in September at our Harvest Festival, we had a service followed by a Harvest supper and sale of produce on the Monday Evening.
A Christmas Memory Tree was placed in the Church in November for anyone wishing to remember loved ones now departed. People put cards on the tree at a cost of £5 and the cards were read out at a special service. This year we raised £768 which will be divided between Hope House, The Hospice and Lingen Davies.
Snailbeach joins Stiperstones for one service a month and the last Thursday of the month is our Communion Service followed by coffee.
We welcome you all.
