Baby Loss Awareness Week

New – Breathing Space Service
We’re starting a new kind of service on the Third Thursday evening each month, particularly aimed at people who don’t find that traditional church services help them to encounter the Divine. Breathing Space will allow us time to step back from the busyness of life and spend time reflecting on a theme. The format will be welcome and opening prayer, a short bible reading and introduction to the theme, recorded music will play while we interact with an assortment of “prayer stations” eg lighting a candle, writing or drawing a response (anonymously!) or simply sit and ponder. A priest will be available for prayers and anointing for healing. When we have all returned to our seats we will conclude by saying the Lord’s Prayer together & the priest will bless us. It will probably last about 30-45 minutes.
See the October Breathing Space poster for details (Unfortunately, October’s Breathing Space has had to be cancelled due to Caroline not being well).
‘Open the Book’
The Guilsfield ‘Open the Book’ Group, consisting of Church and Chapel members and other local Christians, will be going in to Guilsfield CP School on Monday 11th November to perform another story from the Lion Storyteller Bible – ‘A Special Promise’ about Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood.

New!!! – ‘Wander and Ponder’ Trail
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.
