St Giles’ Parish Church, Wrexham welcomes YOU.
Whether you know it as St Giles’ Church or Wrexham Parish Church, this is
St Giles’ Parish Church, Wrexham and . ..you’re here!
Welcome if you are from the north, south, just passing by or got lost in the Town Centre and ended up here by mistake.
We extend a welcome to those who are single, married, divorced, bereaved, gay, confused, lonely, filthy rich, comfortable, dirt poor. We welcome those who are crying new-borns, thin as a rake or could afford to lose a few pounds.
We welcome you if you can sing like Pavarotti or not (and can’t hold a note in a bucket). You are welcome here if you are ‘just browsing’, just woke up, or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more religious than the Archbishop of Wales, or haven’t been in church since little Jack’s christening.
We extend a welcome to those who are over 60 but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, foodies, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters and those who like tea and biscuits/ cake. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you are having problems, or are down in the dumps, or if you don’t like ’organised religion’.
If you blew all your money on the horses, you are welcome here. We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, don’t know anything about “church”, or are only here because Grandma is visiting and wanted to go to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion showed down their throat as a kid, or if you’ve lived here all your life just never been in.
We welcome seekers and doubters, saints and sinners, regulars, visitors, tourists, friends and strangers . . . . and YOU.
Subject to volunteer availability, the Church is open, warm and lit throughout the year; generally Monday - Saturday 10am - 4pm and for Sunday Services usually 8am - 1pm approximately. For full details of Sunday Services please see the section 'Regular Services and Events'.
If you are making a long journey to visit us, or have specific reasons for doing so eg. research on Family History, then to avoid any disappointment you may wish to check with us in advance.
