Scenes shot at St Collen's Church for a BBC TV programme hit the screen earlier this afternoon.

A film crew was recently at the church to record sequences for a BBC's Songs of Praise programme entitled "Sacred Walks on the Wales Coast Path," hosted by Aled Jones.

The scenes filmed in Llangollen centred around the regular Hymns & Pimms musical sessions which priest-in-charge Father Lee Taylor began hosting online during the 2020 lockdown and went on to become popular across the UK and abroad. 

Members of the congregation were shown singing a number of favourite hymns and the old favourite I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside. 

While Father Lee explained the background to Hymns and Pimms and number of church members told how important it had become for them as a morale booster in the depths of the pandemic.

Later the congregation were shown enjoying glasses of Pimms outside the church.
