Welcome to St John’s Church – Penymynydd
The Lord’s Supper, Communion, Eucharist – whatever you like to call it –
is a holy sacrament, which until now, in the Church In Wales, was for people who had been Confirmed by the Bishop. Things have changed, and now all baptised Christians are able to take communion – under fives, the wafer, over fives, the wafer and wine, all with parents agreement of course.
St John’s is a family-friendly church serving the communities of Penymynydd, Dobshill and Penyffordd.
The church is a Grade 2* listed building situated just a few miles from Chester in North-East Wales.
We are in a Mission Area, ‘Borderlands’, which is part of the Diocese of St Asaph within the Church in Wales.
We have a variety of Sunday services as well as regular meetings and activities during the week.
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..
