Holy Cross Church (CinW), Llannor
Holy Cross Church (CinW), Llannor
This beautiful edifice, built in the late English style, dates from the 13th century. It underwent modifications in the Victorian period. On Sunday, 1st February, 1741, Howell Harris, a leading Calvinist Evangelical firebrand, on his first missionary journey to the wilds of North Wales, attended matins at Holy Cross. The vicar, Chancellor John Owen, a fierce opponent of Calvinists and Calvinism, and who in the absence of a resident bishop at Bangor ruled the diocese, let rip during his sermon. So moved were the congregation that they stoned Harris as he made his way out through the churchyard.
