The Agathos Trust exists to support local children and young people and to creatively help them to understand the Christian message of love and hope in our schools and wider community. We formed in 2008, when three local churches came together to realise their shared vision of being more involved in working with local schools. The founding churches are: King’s Christian Centre, Ebenezer Baptist Church, Capel Bethesda.
Mission Statement: To educate children and young people as to the content and relevance of the gospel of Jesus Christ, through teaching, collective worship, extracurricular activities and pastoral support both on and off school premises in North Wales, in both the English and the Welsh language.

Whats in a name? Why are we called "Agathos"? The name comes from a piece of scripture from Romans 10 Verse 15 which says "And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” In the original Greek the part at the end that says "good news" is "ἀγαθός" which is pronounced as "Agathos"
The Agathos Team
Director of Schoolswork
Wendy Swan is the founding member of the Agathos Team and has been working in local schools since training in schoolswork through the Light Project and Scripture Union in 2005. She has achieved a BTEC Award in 'Voluntary Work in an Educational Setting' and hopes to teach this course to others in the future. She’s passionate about seeing lives transformed through God's love and Christian care and loves children of all ages! Wendy is an active member of King’s Christian Centre and lives in the heart of Mold, near the schools she loves to visit. She can often be seen around the area on a walk with one or more dogs, borrowed from friends!
We couldn't have the impact we do on our schools and community without the support of a great team of volunteers who get involved behind the scenes with props and practical support and also the fab group who get stuck in with our clubs and assemblies. These include local church members and workers from students to retirees.
