Knighton is a small market town in mid-Wales, right on the border with England. Its Welsh name, Tref-y-clawdd, means 'town on the dyke', the dyke in question being the boundary ditch and embankment built by King Offa in the 8th century and that still runs from Chepstow in the south to Prestatyn in the north. Knighton is the mid-point on the Offa's Dyke National Trail and is home to the Offa's Dyke Centre. The town attracts many visitors, especially walkers.
We are a group of ordinary people from various walks of life, who love the Lord Jesus Christ and who try to follow him as he guides us by his Spirit. We aim to serve him, learn from him and spread the good news about him here in Knighton and the surrounding district
There has been a Baptist church in Knighton since 1833
Today, Knighton Baptist Church is formed of three congregations meeting in the villages of Knucklas and Coxall, and in Knighton itself.
