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:

‘Puddings and Planning’ come and help Guilsfield Church grow, Monday 21st May, see Puddings and Planning Notice for details.

A novel fund raising event will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 24th, 25th and 26th May, in Guilsfield Church. The Revd Bethan Scotford will be sing her way through all the psalms in the Bible’s Book of Psalms, with the aim of raising funds for the ‘Guilsfield Church Heating Boiler Appeal’. The fund is short of around four thousand pounds, so an injection of cash via the sponsored solo sing of the psalms will be very welcomed. There are 150 psalms in the psalter, and they all vary in length. The shortest psalm, containing only two verses, is psalm 117, whilst psalm 119 contains 176 verses. The total number of verses from all the psalms amounts to 2,413.  Bethan will be chanting the psalms in English and in Welsh; some of the settings will be metrical  and others will be intoned.  See Psalmathon Poster for further information.

Please see the latest MA News 13 – 2018.01 for what is going on in the Mission Area.

Would you like to get involved in sharing stories from the bible with school
