Albany Church is a welcoming fellowship situated in the St Thomas Green area of Haverfordwest. It is the oldest non-conformist church in Pembrokeshire and sits within the United Reformed and Methodist traditions.
Albany Church has a continuous history reaching back to 1638. The group of Quakers and Dissenters that were to form the Green Meeting started a heritage that has been passed on to the present day congregation. In 1990 the by then Albany United Reformed Church entered into a local ecumenical partnership with Haverfordwest Methodist Church which had been sharing the building since 1985.
A warm welcome is offered to a traditional service which will be led by our minister or a visiting preacher. Once a month we share in Holy Communion to which everyone is welcome.
If you are coming for the first time you will receive a warm welcome at the door; feel free to ask one of the stewards any questions you might have. This service is followed by a time of fellowship as we share a cuppa and biscuits in the hall.
We find it a privilege to celebrate life-affirming events such as weddings and christenings with you and will do our best to support you through the loss of a loved one.
Albany is proud of the quality of its premises. We have a large, well-equipped hall, a smaller meeting room and of course the church itself. We have modern kitchen and toilet facilities including a full spec disabled toilet, shower and baby changing area. Please contact us for further details.
So whether you are new to the area, or have always lived here, and feel any of this is for you then either contact the minister, or better still join us at any of our services or activities where you will be made most welcome.
Sunday Services : 10.30am
At 3pm we meet at Merlin's Bridge Methodist Church for a more relaxed and informal style of worship. A monthy Communion Service is celebrated here as well
Wednesday : 10.30am we meet in the Vestry (entrance off St Thomas Green opposite the Leisure Centre) for a weekly celebration of Holy Communion. This shorter service is followed by a cuppa.
We host 1st Haverfordwest Scout Group (our minister is their chaplain), Cantabile Singers, Haverfordwest Arts Group, our friends at the Lifepoint Church and many more. As a fellowship we are particulary pleased of our relationship with PATCH - Pembrokeshire Action To Combat Hardship - who operate a food bank from the upstairs room in our hall.
