Betws Gwerful Goch is one of the ancient parishes of Merioneth. It has been said that, from the churchyard, it is possible to throw a stone into the parishes of Corwen, Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr and Gwyddelwern.
The first recorded reference to the church was in 1254, but it is likely that there had been a church on the same site for perhaps centuries earlier. The church was restored in 1882.
