St David's Church was built in 1902–03 and designed by the Chester firm of architects Douglas and Minshull.[4][5] It is a small church with an apsidal sanctuary. The west window is Perpendicular in style. Rising from the roof is a square bellcote with a pyramidal roof on which is an octagonal spirelet. Internally, the screen was made by a local blacksmith, David Jones.[4]

The services held in the church are in Welsh.[2]
