About us

Grace Rural Wales Partnership (y GRWP) is a Registered Charity Number 1170827

We exist as a group of co-operating Christians reaching out to our rural community, meeting as local missional communities on farms and in villages midweek and find our focus on Sunday afternoons at our coffee shop, Ty’r Bugail at 4 Market Square, Llandovery between 3 and 5 p.m.


We ‘do’ church in small on-farm micro churches where we can build strong relationships and serve the grassroots of our rural communities midweek, and on Sunday afternoons we are at Ty’r Bugail (click on the drop down menu at the top of this page for a map). Contact us on 07748 644958 or through this website for details.


We operate a rural chaplaincy service visiting Llandeilo, Llandovery and Carmarthen livestock marts and operate on the ground, online and on the road as we respond to practical rural needs, and act as ‘agvocates’ for the rural community (check @welshrev on Twitter and the y GRWP Facebook page).

September 7th. Book Club event at Ty’r Bugail

 Our next ‘Book of the Month’ is a Welsh Christian ‘classic’ … a collection of short stories from Welsh country life which we are RIGHT NOW working with Book Club members and the copyright holders to make available again, now in digital/ audio format.

In the Shadow of Aran

When Mari Jones’s first collection of stories, In the shadow of Aran, was published in 1972, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones wrote a foreword introducing the author. However, an introduction to this her second collection was hardly necessary when it was first published in 1979, since by then Mari, her husband John and Brynuchaf, their farm in Llanymawddwy in North Wales had won their way into the hearts of thousands of readers both in Wales itself and far, far beyond.

If you would like to get hold of this book so that you can participate fully at our Book Club on September 7th., and you live in our three counties, please contact us using this form:

Our mission is to give a fresh look at the Bible to the people of rural Wales, praying that God will equip us all together for the lives we need to live on the ground here with a fresh experience of His love, mercy and grace.
