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.
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 seerve 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.
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 is on 13 January and will be a "night at the movies".
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.
