Home > Our Activities > The Guild


The Church of Scotland Guild is one of Scotland's largest voluntary organisation. Although women make up the bulk of our membership, increasingly, men are becoming members and taking active roles.

The Guild is about invitation, encouragement, commitment, and fellowship which leads to providing opportunities for continuing growth in Christian faith through worship, prayer and action.


Women and men of all walks of life meet together under our common aim:

'The Church of Scotland Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland which invites and encourages both women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.'


The aim has been underlined in our motto which is taken from Acts 27, verse 23:

'Whose we are and Whom we serve.'


Worship is an essential ingredient in our local Guild meetings, after an opening act of worship there will be a guest speaker who speak on a subject relating to the national Guild three year strategy. After a closing hymn and prayer there is a time of fellowship over tea and scones.


For many years we have held a monthly coffee morning. This is a popular social gathering for the local community, as well as Guild members. In addition we have two special fund raising coffee mornings, one in February with a magnificent 'Cake and Candy' stall as well as 'bric-a-brac' stall and near the end of June a themed coffee morning.


In May each year a trip is arranged for members and friends. A place of interest is visited which normally offers the opportunity of some shopping. The day concludes with an afternoon 'High Tea' at a carefully chosen hotel, before the journey home, tired but happy.


We are always happy to see new faces and extend a warm welcome to anyone who would like to attend any of our meetings or become a member.
