New Priest for St Benet, Paul’s Wharf

New Priest for St Benet, Paul's Wharf

The Bishop of London, Richard Chartres, this week licensed the Revd Aneirin Glyn as Priest in charge at St Benet, Paul’s Wharf, the Metropolitan Welsh church, during a celebration of harvest festival.

St Benet, Paul’s Wharf is an iconic building and a historic centre for the Welsh community in London. Rebuilt by Christopher Wren after the Fire of London, St Benet’s was given to the use of Welsh Anglicans by Queen Victoria in 1879.

Aneirin Glyn will take on the role at St Benet’s alongside his duties at St Helen’s Bishopsgate. Bilingual in Welsh and English, Aneirin will preside over St Benet’s Welsh language Sunday services and lead the church in reaching out to London’s Welsh speaking community.

Aneirin Glyn said:

“London has a vibrant Welsh community and I would love St Benet’s to be the place where they come and hear the great news about Jesus.”
