During the 1962-63 excavations (see Bleddfa History) the rector, Rev. John Tipping, heard that Bleddfa Church was on a provisional list for closure. James Roose Evans, who was then living at Bleddfa Rectory, launched a scheme to save the church, now called the Bleddfa Trust. The Trust incorporates the church, the old school, and Hall Barn where you can see the images of Tobit, his dog and angel. It was blessed by the then Archbishop of Wales, Rowan Willliams.

The architect George Pace drew up plans to re-design the church interior to facilitate the use of the church not only for worship but also for retreats, workshops, concerts.
