Llanrhychwyn Church was established in the 6th Century and during Llewelyn Fawr's time the village of Llanrhychwyn was larger than Trefriw. The oldest parts of the church date from the late 11th or early 12th Century. The church bell is believed to be 14th Century and may have come from Maenan Abbey. Llewelyn Fawr supported the monks of Aberconwy Abbey (who later moved to Maenan Abbey) and it is believed that his influence may have lead to the adding of the chancel.
