Church of St Ina, Llanina, Llanllwchaiarn near New Quay. This lovely little church is dedicated to St Ina, a King of Wessex who reigned from 688 to 726 AD. Ina founded the Abbey at Glastonbury and the Cathedral at Wells. It might seem strange to have a church on the west coast of Wales dedicated to a Saxon King, but the story goes that the king was shipwrecked while sailing in the Irish Sea and rescued and looked after by the local community. Out of gratitude for his deliverance, he built the first church near here. That church was lost to coastal erosion and this is at least the third, possibly the seventh on or near the site. King Ina abdicated in 726 AD and with his wife, Ethelburga, made a pilgrimage to Rome, and was later canonised. The church was rebuilt in 1850 and restored in 1905. The church is one of the smallest churches in Ceredigion, it can accommodate up to eighty worshippers.

Lovely intimate,very old church with small but friendly congregation and nice and well-educated and informed Vicar (Matthew).Couldn't give it 5 stars only because as a visitor and Non-Conformist some of the service too "high" for me on occasion. Hope the opening of the new kitchen/toilet block goes well and that Peter and Wendy who are returning to visit for the weekend enjoy seeing "old friends" at this lovely place of worship.If you just want to sit in the church and listen to the waves against the shore outside and BE STILL-few better places in Ceredigion!...
