Scope and Content

The Original services were held in Llanynghenedl Parish Church , however, with the building of the railway the population increased near Valley railway station, and church people held evening services in a local "Board Room". By 1885, the accommodation had become too small, and it was in this context that a committee was set up to consider building a church at Valley. St Michael's, Valley opened on 8th April 1888 with a communion service at 9.30a.m. conducted by the Bishop of Bangor. The adjoining parsonage was built as soon as the church was built.
