Welcome to St Ethelwold’s Church, Shotton,
St Ethelwold’s Church, Shotton, is in the town of Shotton, Flintshire, Wales. It is an active Anglican parish church in the deanery of Hawarden, the archdeaconry of Wrexham, and the diocese of St Asaph.It is designated by Cadw as a Grade II listed building.
The church building was paid for partly by W. E. Gladstone but construction was not started until after his death; it was built between 1898 and 1902 to a design by Douglas and Minshull of Chester in Gothic Revival style. It was intended that the church should have a tower and a spire, but these architectural features were not included at the time.The lower stage of a tower was added in 1924.
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..
