Croeso i Fangor. Welcome to Bangor.

Bangor is an incredible place to study. Not only is it a stone's throw away from Snowdonia National Park, the idyllic Ynys Môn (Isle of Anglesey) and the seaside town of Llandudno, but it is a town steeped in history and culture in its own right. This makes for a university experience unlike any other.

Perhaps you are yourself a Christian, exploring faith, or stumbled across this page completely by accident? In any case, welcome to Penrallt Baptist Church!

Here are some of our church members to welcome students to Penrallt:

Student Activities

This year's Penrallt Student Fellowship will be following a programme called Faith: One Eight! This is based on the Bible verses Acts 1:8 and Joshua 1:8 —

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

Acts 1:8 (NIV)

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful

Joshua 1:8 (NIV)

Its aim is to discover, discern and discuss gospel principles and to apply them holistically to our lives in order to foster individual faith, engage with the wider Christian community, and to develop evangelistic skills. We seek to be God's witness across the world and to love, trust and follow Jesus in all aspects of our lives.

The program will include Bible study sessions, ministry activities, guest speakers, and socials (amongst other things) across the academic year. Email us at for more details, or join our student Facebook group, which is available for updated information, pastoral support and general conversation:

We also recommend exploring the rest of this website for services, newsletters and information on what Penrallt is like.
