St Mary’s Church, Chirk

St Mary’s Chirk and the Offa Mission Area were recipients of a grant for £450 from ESRC IAA/Bangor University as a part of a scheme to help develop Dementia Friendly Churches in the diocese.  In consultation with a local hospital and care home, provided jigsaws, a battery operated cat and a DVD on Childhood.  In addition, they created three boxes to support Dementia Friendly Ministry.
