All Saints Church, Oystermouth, Swansea
Ancient and Modern
This ancient and modern Church, writes Canon Keith Evans, Vicar of Oystermouth, has been a place of Christian worship for well over a thousand years. It is quite likely that there was a Christian presence here sometime towards the end of the Roman occupation of Britain. The Church itself is built on the site of a Roman settlement. This could have been a villa, or more likely a mansio [inn] or even a military / naval base.
Son of the Parish
The most famous ‘son of the parish’ is previous Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams (Lord Oystermouth) who was confirmed here, served as a chorister and altar boy.
