The original church dates from about 15th century and is situated near the Menai Strait. The present church of St. Nidan was completed in 1841, and is grade II listed.
Two bells from the old church, one from 14th and one from 15th century, hang in the castellated tower which houses a clock which faces both west and east. The cylindrical font on an octagonal base is believed to be from 13th century and presumably from the old church.
In the churchyard, next to the north wall of the church, is the grave of Sir Ellis Jones Ellis-Griffiths (1860-1926) who was raised in Brynsiencyn and was Liberal MP for Anglesey from 1893 – 1918. He was one of those responsible for promoting the 1914 Act, which led to the disestablishment of the Anglican Church in Wales in 1920.
