“Welcome to Borderlands Mission Area”
“We encourage and support each of our 19 churches to grow in faith and love, through their ministry and our common mission”. Rev Martin Batchelor, Mission Area Leader.
Including 19 churches, Borderlands Mission Area is amongst the largest of the Mission Areas within the Church in Wales. Our urban churches and rural parishes have all come together to share skills and resources in what is a truly exciting way to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ.
With community and fellowship at the heart of everything we do, we work as a team to encourage, support and inspire one another. There is strength in numbers, and by coming together as a Mission Area of 19 churches, we are best placed to rise to modern day challenges.
Bishop Gregory commissioned us to work together as a Mission Area. In the Eucharist, and in our prayers, we ask God’s blessing upon us as we step out in faith, ready to meet the challenges of sharing his gospel and his love. And we warmly welcome each and every one from the communities within our Mission Area.
There are no upcoming events at this time.
CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC UPDATE
We might be closed, but we’re still here. You’re in our thoughts and our prayers.
Keep us good Lord under the shadow of your mercy In this time of uncertainty and distress. Sustain and support the anxious and fearful, And lift up all who are brought low; That we may rejoice in your comfort knowing that nothing can separate us from your love, in Christ Jesus our Lord, Amen.

What is a Mission Area?
A Mission Area is effectively a large parish. As part of its 2020 Vision, the Diocese of St Asaph is being reformed into Mission Areas, defined as a group of mutually supportive churches working together for a common purpose.
“Borderlands Mission Area covers a large geographical area. Through our 19 churches we seek to be a sign of God’s presence within our local communities”. Rev Martin Batchelor, Mission Area Leader.
