Guild Logo

2019-2020 Session

Opening meeting of the Guild
Was held Tuesday 8th October

Our minister Jane explored our theme
‘Companions on the road.’

The Guild is an organisation within the Church of Scotland

Locally we meet fortnightly in the afternoon from October to March

Nationally there is a structure which provides a framework for us

The overall theme within a three year cycle is

‘Be bold, Be strong,

Go in joy, go in peace, go in love.’

During the three year cycle there are six interesting projects for which we raise money

Although open to men, our group consists of ladies who enjoy fellowship and a range of interesting speakers - with the inevitable cup of tea and home baking

We look forward to our opening meeting in October when our minister Jane will explore the theme ‘Go in Love’.
At the second meeting we will have a speaker from one of our projects - Caring for Mother Earth. Millions of Bolivians are struggling to survive in one of the poorest countries in the world. So far £72,215.44 has been raised towards providing solar powered ovens. Help is also given towards their use.
We look forward to a visit to our link Guild in Coatbridge for a Wedding Festival  - nostalgia with the promise of wedding cake!

Please contact Mrs Margaret Tindall for further information
