|Dim ond tri
Ty Dduw sydd yn dal yn agored yn Rhiw, mae Capel Tan-y-Foel wedi cau ac wedi
cael ei droi yn dy ers tro byd. ac mae Eglwys St Aelrhiw wedi cau ei ddrysau
erbyn heddiw hefyd. Y rheswm mwyaf am hyn dwin siwr yw'r
di boblogi mawr sydd wedi bod yma yn y blynyddoedd diwaethaf, fel llawer
o bentrefi eraill Llyn. Does neb wedi dod i fynu efo ateb ir broblem
hon, ac mae'n siwr i chi y bydd blynyddoedd cyn gwneith rhywun hefyd.
only three places of worship left open at Rhiw today. Tan-y- Foel
was turned into a house some time ago and in the last couple of years
St Aelrhiw closed its door for the last time. The biggest reason for this
must be the de population of the village, Rhiw is not alone in this,
its a pattern throughout Llyn.
Eglwys hyfryd iawn ar ben yr allt mor yn ymyl Porth Ysgo,
y tu fewn yn hynod o brydferth efo carpedi coch ar y llawr, ac mae'r gwaith
coed yn y to werth ei weld. Mae yn agored trwy'r dydd yn yr haf, ac mae
yna lyfr ymwelwyr difyr iawn, hefo pobol o bob rhan o'r byd wedi
ei arwyddo. Gwasanaeth bob Dydd Sul 2pm.
church is quite beautiful and peaceful in a very nice part of
village, on the cliff edge overlooking the sea. Its just a short walk
from Porth Ysgo Rhiw's nicest beach. The interior is very beautiful with
a red carpet leading you up the aisle. I often spend time here looking
at the guest book, as we get visitors from all over the world. Its open
all day throughout the summer and its well worth a visit. Sunday Services
|In 1877 it was decide to build a
chapel and land valued at £25 was donated by Mrs Williams of Tyddyn Meirion.
The chapel cost £544 and the money was raised by donations and loans, The
families of Meillionydd and Meillionydd bach became great supporters and
benefactors of the chapel and it was finally opened in 1878. Services are still
held there, although sadly not on a regular basis due to a dwindling
congregation and lack of ministers in the region.
St Aelrhiw has a
commanding view over Hells mouth, Re-built in the shape of
a cross in 1860
on the foundation of an earlier Church.
Nebo is the only
Chapel that's in the village itself, built in 1813 and
then re built
again in 1876. Services are very seldom held.

Morgan y Gogrwr
/ Morgan the Sieve-maker
Morgan y Gogrwr (Bwlch Rhiw) yn un oír ymneilltuwyr cyntaf ac

ym Mhwlleli lle y Cafodd ei ddedfrydu I garchar mewn hen long yn un o
borthladdoedd Lloegr.Cafodd ei ryddhau ymhen
amser a dychwelodd yn ol I Rhiw,
dechreuodd bregethu eto ac fei ail garcharwyd. Bu iddynt saethu atoiíw
ddychryn ond doedd dim ond powdwr yn y gwn er na wyddai Morgan druan
mo hyn, cymaint oedd ei ddychryn fe fu farw mewn dim o amser.
Sieve-maker from Bwlch Rhiw was one of the first nonconformists.
In 1745 he was taken to the court in Pwllheli where he was jailed
for not renouncing his religious beliefs. He was sentenced to serve his
imprisonment on an old prison ship in England. After his release he returned
to Rhiw and began preaching again whereupon he was re-arrested and
sent back to the prison ship, this time he did not return home. He was
persecuted by the prison officers and on one
occasion they shot at him however the
gun contained only powder, but poor Morgan didnít know this and
he died later from shock.
