Wrexham, a Welsh borders town, is situated about 12 miles south of Chester. With a borough population of over 130,000, Wrexham has grown considerably over recent years. Always a mixture of backgrounds and cultures, the expansion to the EU has seen Wrexham become a popular destination for all nationalities. We at Christians Together in Wrexham are thrilled at the multi-cultural opportunities that now exist and seek to serve within them.
Adding the context to this contemporary mix is a rich heritage and fascinating history. Of particular note is the 16th Century church, St Giles, that forms an exciting centre piece to the town. Blending old and new, Wrexham has a two centres for Higher Education and boasts a shopping centre and night-life that attracts people from miles around.
Wrexham’s churches are no less noteworthy, with the vast majority committed to working together in unprecedented ways right across the borough. As a result we are blessed with a significant unity which allows us to see such diverse projects as Street Pastors and a Trussell Trust foodbank as well as enjoying regular rhythms of united services and hosting large events for the benefit of the whole town.
