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.

Entries for the Seasonal Music Quiz have now been closed and a total of £366 has been raised for the Boiler Appeal.  The result will be announced at the Hot-Pot Supper in the Old School this Saturday, 27th January, with a prize of a £20 Sainsbury voucher when a list of the correct answers will also be revealed.

Would you like to get involved in sharing stories from the bible with school
children?  For more information speak to Caroline as we are planning to set up a team in Guilsfield.

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.

Guilsfield Church Amongst TreesWe hope to offer an environment which enables all to come closer to God through prayer and worship, reflection and action.

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.

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.
