About affiliation

Y Gymdeithas, the Society for Wales, is an ecclesial body not a membership organisation. There is no subscription fee. It is supported financially by Credo Cymru.


The Society is open to all communicant members of the Church in Wales who assent to the following declaration:


I uphold the traditional teaching of the Church on the Sacraments and the threefold ministry in the historic succession and am therefore unable in conscience to receive the sacramental ministry of women as bishops and priests.


There are three categories of affiliation: for priests, for ordinands and for laity. Each category has a specific application form (see below) in order to cover the appropriate declaration and necessary supporting statements. Would priest applicants please note the additional supporting documentation required. 


In all cases, after completion, the forms should be sent to: The Registrar, Y Gymdeithas, Gwenallt, Wellington Road, Llandrindod Wells, Powys, LD1 5NB. All applications received will be acknowledged. Should you require assistance or any further information, please contact The Registrar at the above address or by email: ygymdeithas@gmail.com who will be pleased to help.
