Three of the bells at St Cynfarch'sHOPE PARISH CHURCH BELLS

The bells are a complete ring of six bells from the Loughborough Foundry of John Taylor & Co. The three old original bells were melted down to form the new ring of six in 1920-21, which is a memorial to those who gave their lives in the Great War of 1914-18.
This is a very tuneful ring of six bells which are friendly to handle.
The bells are rung for most Sunday morning services and for weddings.
Practice night is Tuesdays at 7-9pm, ringers old and new always welcome.

BELLEPLATES GROUP Trying out the Belleplates in September
Belle plates are a modern type of hand bell and all ages are welcome to our practices on Fridays from 6.15 to 7.15 pm in the Church Hall. No experience or musical expertise is required and if you prefer to help with the refreshments or just watch then that’s fine – just come along! The picture on the right shows some of the group plus some visitors trying the belleplates at one of the Activity Afternoons.

CHOIR
We practise in the Church Hall on Wednesdays at 7.30 pm, except for the Friday before 1st Sunday in the month when we meet on a Friday. New members always welcome – contact Kath direct or email through the website.

AFTERNOON HOUSE GROUP
This Christian fellowship group is open to all ages and meets at Riverslea, Sarn Lane, on Monday afternoons. Each session lasts a maximum of an hour and a half and stands alone so there is no commitment. The subject of the current sessions follows on from the Bible-reading project and will look at links between the New and Old testaments. Contact Barry or Angela on 01978 761175 for further information. All are very welcome.

MOTHERSUNION
We enjoy a varied programme of events, meeting on the second Thursday of each month at 2 pm at Heulwen Close (unless specified otherwise). Reports of our meetings and events are published each month in the church magazine and there is a Mothers’ Union notice board in Church giving more information about the organisation.

Our Branch Leader is Pat Farnworth, the Secretary is Angela Smith and Glenys Collins is Treasurer.

We are an extremely friendly group and are always delighted to welcome new faces. The Mothers’ Union is not just for mothers, but is open to all those with an interest in promoting the values of family life. Please feel free to come to our meetings where you can be assured of a warm welcome. If you are wary of coming alone, bring a friend or introduce yourself to Pat, Angela or any of our members at the main Sunday service at Hope Church.

Alternatively you can email our webmaster who will pass on a message info@hopeparishflintshire.org.uk
