Welcome to Bangor. This is a great place to study — a small town which becomes a student campus in term time. Beautiful scenery and plenty to do, plus good courses make this an ideal place to spend three or more years studying. But be warned — once you come here you may never want to leave!

Here is a 5-minute video introduction from our minister, John, and our student co-ordinators, Kelly and Ryan:

Student Activities

Our main student-specific activities this term are FOCUS, a student Bible study group that meets via Zoom on Monday evenings at 6:30pm (starting on 5th October) and a Friday night social meeting, also on Zoom at 6:30pm (starting on 2nd October). For details of these activities please contact Ryan (see below).

Students are very welcome to participate in other church activities and to attend one of our home groups, which are currently meeting online. There is one in particular that is aimed at young adults; this group meets on Tuesday evenings. To find out more please contact Magnus at the church office.

Student Co-ordinator

Our student co-ordinator, Ryan Wright, is here to help you settle into Penrallt. He can be contacted by email to

Hi, I'm Ryan. I am a second year, studying Philosophy and Religion, after completing a year of Business Studies changing my degree with the hopes of one day of becoming a minister.

I have taken part in many student events over my time here, but my proudest moment was getting baptised in the fall of 2019.

I live with my wife Ffion, who also attends the church and University. I enjoy learning the Welsh language, exploring the local area and history.

Menai Bridge On Reflection

Café Church

Once a month we have Café Church on a Sunday evening, usually on the third Sunday of the month, taking place on Zoom at 6:30pm and lasting about an hour. It is a very informal, interactive service with live music, discussion in breakout groups and opportunity for reflection. See our news page for dates and links:
