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.
