St Digain's Church, Llangernyw, is a much altered late medieval church, with a cruciform plan by addition. Despite heavy rebuilding the church retains its original walls to at least the sill level. The interior has a 14th-15th century font and retains what may be an early post-Reformation layout with benches in the nave and transepts focussed on the crossing space.

There is a benefactions board in English on the former gallery front dated to 1748
