The Lent Lunch on Thursday 1st March has been cancelled and the Women’s World Day of Prayer Service at Groes Chapel on Friday 2nd March has been postponed due to the snow and poor weather conditions.
We will be welcoming the children from Guilsfield Primary School class by class to St Aelhaiarn’s Church over Tue 20th March and Wed 21st March for ‘Experience Easter’. If you are able to help in making, preparing or providing the resources needed or are willing to take part over the two days, please contact Caroline to see how you can assist.
The latest list of our giving for 2017 is at Donations in 2017.
Have a look at our new Dementia Friendly Guilsfield page.
The Church boiler broke down in the Autumn and it was beyond economic repair. We set a fund-raising target of £20,000 for the necessary work to be carried out. Donations or fund raising ideas are still required. For progress click Boiler Appeal Thermometer.
A big thank you to everyone who bought copies of the Guilsfield Church Boiler Appeal Seasonal Music Quiz, which raised a total of £366 towards the cost of replacing the boiler. The correct answers and result can be found at the Boiler Appeal Christmas Quiz ANSWERS and Result Sheet and further information is on the Recent Events page.

As an active Christian community we aim to be open, friendly and accessible. The church is open daily for visitors throughout the year, with the lady chapel available for quiet reflection and prayer.
We aim to offer a mixture of forms of worship from the traditional to the contemporary for all ages.
St Aelhaiarns works closely with the Groeslwyd Presbyterian Church of Wales and other local organisations in the wider community as we seek to share God’s love for all.
You will find a very warm welcome at our services and we look forward to greeting you.
The church is open daily 9.00 a.m to 5.00 p.m. winter and 9.00 a.m to 4.00 p.m. summer.
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.
