St Francis of Assisi - Llay

Christ the King - Rossett

Llay-Rossett Parish Wrexham, North Wales

The parish has been in membership of TCC since 1995.

TCC is made up of thirty two groups across North East Wales, largely faith based, from a range of denominations, the Wrexham Mosque, schools, including St Joseph’s and St Richard Gwyn, a disability group and Flintshire Friends of the Earth.  TCC works on issues that are of concern to its member groups.  Working this way strengthens community and the democratic process.  TCC also offers training courses in Community Organising, which is what Barack Obama is famous for before he became a lawyer and then ran for president.
