History

There has been a Christian Community in Llanfyrnach since the 5th Century. The original site was probably about half a mile to the West of the present Church at Trehenry Farm.

The Church is dedicated to Saint Brynach who is believed to have come from Ireland to act as chaplain to Brychan, the Irish Ruler with headquarters at Brecon. When Brynach’s work as Chaplain was finished he went on a pilgrimage to the continent, but on his return an attempt was made to assassinate him. He escaped and made his way to the north of what is now Pembrokeshire where there are five churches as well as the one at Llanfyrnach dedicated to him.

Two other Churches in Wales are dedicated to him; one at Llanfrynach near Brecon, and the other at Llanfrynach near Cowbridge. The Church at Braunston in North Devon is dedicated to Saint Brannock, but as the symbols of that Saint are the same as those of Saint Brynach, it is a probability that they were the same person.
