A vicar in Pennal has applied for a drinks license so that he can sell wine and beer at his church. He says the license is needed to sell drinks at parish functions such as concerts and weddings. He may later open a small bar on the premises in the small cafe at the rear of the Church. A spokeswoman for the church in Wales said "The Church in Wales welcomes initiatives such as this which encourage people to come to churches and to see them as places where they can relax, socialise and share food and drink."
