New Time – 1662 Communion

Please note the new time of 08:30 for the early/1662 communion service on the 4th Sunday of the month from 26th May; see Early/1662 Communion Time Change Poster.

‘A Good Funeral’ – 8th July

A good funeral can be a wonderful celebration of a person’s life, faith and hope, especially if that person has had input into the plans.  It’s much easier to think about those plans when we hope the event is decades or years away, rather than months or weeks.  So why not come along to the Old School, Guilsfield on Monday 8th July at 2pm for a chance to think about how we might like to be remembered over a cup of tea, a piece of cake and with friends.  See also Caroline’s June Newsletter.

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.

** New Organist Required **

Following the retirement of our long serving organist, we are looking for a successor who can commit to playing regularly for morning and evening services on Sundays and for major Christian festivals, with additional fees for weddings and funerals. For details please contact Caroline on 01938 554245.
