CROESO – WELCOME to the Parish church of
St Cynfarch in Hope
Our churches are part of the Borderlands Mission Area, a group of local churches which are part of the Diocese of St Asaph within the Church in Wales. We are also members of the local ecumenical Cytun group (churches together)
Over time several histories of the church have been compiled. In April 2007 a new leaflet was produced using the various sources and is available in the church. The information it contains is set out below.
Hope Parish Church is dedicated to St Cynfarch of the C5th and St Cyngar of the C6th. Both were Celtic saints and descendants of Cunedda.Our worship covers a wide range of styles as we seek to live out our faith by embracing the new whilst treasuring our traditions.

Borderlands Mission Area believes and proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ,
This is Good News, because it encourages each one of us to realise that God loves us, that he has gone out of his way to meet us in the person of his Son, in whom he accepts us as we are. He asks us to draw on his strength to live life to the full, and to bring healing to the world. We invite you to join with us in sharing this Good News.
Prayer for the week
O Lord Jesus Christ,
who at your first coming sent your messenger
to prepare your way before you:
grant that the ministers and stewards of your mysteries
may likewise so prepare and make ready your way
by turning the hearts of the disobedient
to the wisdom of the just,
that at your second coming to judge the world
we may be found an acceptable people in your sight;
for you are alive and reign with the Father
and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever..
What we Believe?
We believe that this local presence is an important sign of our desire to serve and work with local communities and organisations, not just those people who come to church.
We have a deep belief that God is present in the lives of every one of us whatever our situation, age and background – whether or not we belong to a faith community..
