    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Our ancient church of St Ilan sits on top of Eglwysilan mountain, where there has been a place of worship serving the local community since the 12th century. The present 16th century church is open for visitors during the daytime, and for services on Sundays, as well as for special events such as Taize services, as shown in the photo. The church is very popular for weddings, baptisms and funerals - especially now that it is in the Benefice of Eglwysilan and Caerphilly, so that people living in Caerphilly are able to get married or baptized up there.
    There are lots of jobs that need doing, but the most pressing is a hole in the roof, which if left unattended will de-stabilize the whole roof and the wall on which it rests. Do you have memories of this wonderful church, or have family history related to it? If so, please think of us - we would welcome your donation towards this very urgent work.
