Welcome

A warm welcome to the web-site of St Aelhaiarn’s, the Church in Wales Anglican church for Guilsfield within the Diocese of St Asaph.

What’s New:

The Church boiler has broken down and, due to it’s age, parts are unobtainable; it is therefore beyond economic repair.  The estimate to replace the boiler is between £18,000 and £20,000; as this work needs to be carried out before the cold weather sets in, donations or fund raising ideas are urgently required.  For progress click Boiler Appeal Thermometer.

Why not have a go at the Seasonal Music Quiz in aid of the Boiler Appeal.  Quiz sheets available for a minimum donation of £1.  Result to be announced at the Pot Luck Supper on Saturday 27th January with a prize of a £20 Sainsbury voucher.

The latest Mission Area Newsletter, MA News 12 – 2017.11 has been published.

We belong to the Small Pilgrims Places Network; www.smallpilgrimplaces.org and continue to attract visitors from all over the world.  A Small Pilgrim Place is a place that has a ‘presence’, a place for people to pray or to spend some time in quiet contemplation away from the bustle of traffic and modern living.  The church is included in T J Hughes’ Wales’ Best One Hundred Churches’ and also the AA book Exploring Britain’s Churches and Chapels, with a forward by David Dimbleby.  It has also been listed on a new website designed to promote churches to visit at www.explorechurches.org, the website of Explore Churches at the National Churches Trust where you can find other churches to visit in the local area.

We would be grateful if you could make our web site known to your families, friends and acquaintances or why not visit our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/guilsfieldchurch.
