The Guild

The Guild Hymn

Inspire us Lord, give us strength and courage

to serve with grace, unselfish and sincere

Commit our lives. Supporting one another

with hope and peace replacing hurt and fear

Reach out and help with love and with compassion

give strength and hope to those who are in need

to work as one, to change the lives of many

Express our faith in worship, prayer and deed.

So Lord, awaken us to every challenge

With confidence, determined to succeed

Let us act justly, always showing mercy

Break down the walls, transform lives indeed

With willing hearts, we gladly serve the Lord our God

In Him we trust and in Him we believe

And reach beyond our every expectation

Let us have faith in all that we can achieve.

Guild Outing 2020

Hopefully everyone is well during this very difficult time we are living through. Through modern technology, we have still been able to enjoy morning worship each Sunday and also a mid-week short "Thought for Today" on Wednesdays. We have been very fortunate both with the lovely spring weather we have had so far and also with our local shops doing such a good service to the community. Those who have been self-isolating will have made good use of the ordering and delivering service available to everyone.

Please check this page on the website for information regarding the autumn session, whether or not we will be able to recommence in October.

You may have been checking your diaries and noticed that our outing is due to take place to St Andrews on 10 June. Unfortunately, this will not be going ahead because of Covid19 and the current restrictions in place. The Scores Hotel has been most helpful and have refunded our deposit into our bank account. God willing, we will re-book the same hotel for next summer.

The Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland to invite and encourage all people, male or female, to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.

Christmas Dinner 2019

The ladies of the Guild had a most enjoyable dinner at the local Coachman Hotel.

We now look forward to a successful year in 2020. Our first event - a "night at the movies" - was held on 13 January.

St Andrew's Night

We held a every successful St Andrew's Night concert with entertainment by Celtic Distraction.

The hall was very tastefully decorated in blue and white and the evening was enjoyed by all. 

We now look forward to hearing the Jordanhill Bellringers followed the next week by our Christmas meal at the Coachman.

The 2019-20 Session was opened on 7 October by Rev Bob Johnston.

 

Our next meeting was a super concert by the Silver Singers then came a very enlightening talk on one of our projects "Free to Live".

On 28 October, the Guild had a visit from Helen Jordan, a puppy walker, who brought with her Cilla, a Labrador puppy who is training to work with blind people.

The Fundraising Concert performed by Harmony in Concert was a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone
