During the coronavirus pandemic most of our activities have been online. We are now gradually returning to our building, while reviewing government guidance alongside advice from the Baptist Union of Great Britain. At the moment, it is necessary to book a place if you wish to attend one of our services (or you can join us on Zoom without booking); all other access to the building is by prior arrangement only.

The Church Office remains closed, but you can still contact the Church Administrator by e-mail: office@penrallt.org, or by mobile phone: 07934 231788 (Monday to Friday, 10am to 3pm only).

How to find us

NB this page is about how to physically locate our building. For contact details, please see our contact page.

The church building

We are located in Upper Bangor on Holyhead Road, between the Morrisons roundabout and College Road. The building is on the right-hand side as you head up the hill, or on the left as you go down. We are about two doors down from the Belle Vue pub, which stands on the corner of College Road.

Directions

Map of Upper Bangor showing Penrallt

If you are travelling to Penrallt by road from any direction and are not familiar with Bangor we recommend coming via the A55 and turning off at Junction 9 (the one just before the Britannia Bridge - or just after it if you've come from Anglesey; this is the third turn-off for Bangor if you are coming from the East), then following signs to Bangor (A487, joining the A5 by the Antelope pub). As you come into Bangor, the road sweeps round to the right just after the 30mph speed limit sign. Shortly after this, look out for a pedestrian crossing followed by a turn-off to the left, with the Belle Vue pub on the corner. Our building is just past the pub on the left (on the main road).

Our postcode, should you need it for your Sat Nav or other direction-finding tools, is LL57 2EU. If you would like further assistance with directions, please contact the church office.

Parking

Please note that we do not have any spaces in the car park next to the church, which is pay-and-display (approx. £1/hour).

Using public transport

Bangor train station is about 5 minutes' walk away down the hill and there are fairly frequent train services in both directions (i.e. towards Holyhead and towards Llandudno and England).

There are several bus stops nearby, used by number of local bus routes.

You can download bus timetables from Gwynedd Council and you may also find the Traveline-Cymru website a useful resource for planning journeys by public transport.
