As we approach Easter, perhaps we are more ‘tuned in ‘ to Jesus’ passion and sacrifice than at other times.  Here is a touching story from the isle of Iona.

The full list of services in the churches across the Mission Area during Holy Week and Easter can be found at MA Easter Services 2019.

There will a children’s activity day at the Old School, Berriew on Good Friday 19th April for details see the Easter Capers Poster.

The new Mothers’ Union programme for 2019 has been issued see MU Programme 2019 for upcoming events and throughout the year.

There is a new way to appreciate and learn about St Aelhaiarn’s Church; why not pick up a leaflet and follow the ‘Wander and Ponder’ Trail?  As you wander around, you will see and find out a little bit more about the meaning and reasons for some of the items and images in the Church.  The leaflets can be found on the table part of the notice board to the left of the door as you enter the porch.  The Trail will be changed several times during the year to feature different items and reflections; so, if you enjoy it, do look out for the new leaflets and come back again to enjoy the peace and serenity of our beautiful church.

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.

The latest church news and information on forthcoming events can be found on the News page and reports on the latest activities are at Recent Events.

You will find a very warm welcome at our services and we look forward to greeting you.

The church is open daily 10.00 a.m to 4.00 p.m. winter and 10.00 a.m to 5.00 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 website designed to promote churches to visit at www.explorechurches.org where you can also find other churches to visit in the local area; Explore Churches is supported by the National Churches Trust.  Our page can be found at https://www.explorechurches.org/church/st-aelhaiarn-guilsfield.
