Lent is a time we use to refocus our relationship with the Lord as we journey with him towards Holy Week and his Passion, Death and Resurrection
The following prayer as been produced by the Diocese and Bishop Gregory asks us to pray it with him around 6pm each day in Lent:
all our beginnings and endings
are encompassed by you.
Help us follow in the footsteps of Christ
and seek your Kingdom with all our hearts.
In Jesus, may we find firm footing for our feet
and clear direction to our travels.
With his life and love
breathed into our witness,
may we stand with him,
who, for the joy that was set before him,
endured the cross. Amen.

Along with Churches across the Diocese public worship is again suspended after guidance was issued by the Bishop and his senior staff. For the time being worship is being broadcast from the Cathedral at 11am each Sunday and via Zoom at 10.30am each Wednesday. Both can be accessed via the Cathedral website: www.stasaphcathedral.wales
Please continue to pray for all those affected by the current pandemic.

Croeso i Eglwys Sant Asa / Welcome to St Asaph Parish Church
Eglwys Sant Asa / St Asaph Parish Church is home to a friendly Church in Wales congregation in the very centre of our small city. The church has stood since medieval times, is hallowed by centuries of prayer and worship, and has been the setting for important events for countless generations of families from St Asaph and the surrounding area. Whilst our congregation is local we offer a warm welcome to visitors from near and far. We seek to serve God in our daily lives, and to show Christ’s love to all as we seek to serve our community.
You will find a warm welcome at any of our services or other activities, or just call by in your own time, as the church is open every day during daylight hours for prayer and quiet.
We particularly want the Church to be a centre for the community – so if you have need of a venue for a meeting, a concert, or any other activities, please get in contact with the churchwardens or the clergy. To this end, we are currently working on plans to extensively renovate the interior of the church to provide better facilities for the community. The Church in Wales term for this process is re-ordering – see the re-ordering page for more details.
Our church and the cathedral make up the Elwy Mission Area of the Church in Wales.
Every person who walks through our doors is important to us, and a very warm welcome is extended to all. We invite you to come along church, to join with us in worship as we celebrate God’s love in our lives.
