  Llandeilo is an attractive country town set on a hill overlooking the scenic Tywi (Towy) valley. It is 15 miles east of Carmarthen, the county town, on the A40, and 20 minutes from the M4. The parish takes in the town and surrounding rural area, with a population of about 3,000 in total. Dairy farming has been the mainstay of the local economy for many years.

  The area retains a substantial Welsh-speaking population, though the town is, for historical reasons, rather Anglicised in character. While the Nonconformist denominations are almost entirely Welsh-speaking, the Church uses English pastorally and liturgically, though some hymns are sung in Welsh, and parts of the liturgy are also said in Welsh.

  There are two primary schools in the town, one of which teaches mainly through the medium of Welsh, the other mainly through the medium of English, and the local Comprehensive School is within walking distance of the town.

  St Teilo's stands on the hillside overlooking the old stone bridge that crosses the Tywi to the neigbouring community of Ffairfach.

  St John's Church is situated near the hamlet of Capel Isaac, on the minor road from Llandeilo via Pen-y-banc.

  Holy Trinity stands on a bluff overlooking the Dulais valley about 5miles from Llandeilo on the B4302
