What's On

Church of Scotland Guild

“Whose we are and Whom we serve”

The aim of the Guild is to invite and encourage women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.

Strategy 2018 - 2021: One journey, many roads

Theme 2018 - 2019 Seeking the way

With over 20,000 members, the Guild is one of the largest organisations in Scotland and has a rich history of service to others. Founded in 1887 the Church of Scotland Guild has focused on serving our church, our communities and our world. It has always been a forward-thinking organisation and since 1969, around £7 million has been raised for projects national and international. These projects are challenging, sometimes controversial, but always worthwhile. This year we have presentations from two of the current projects - the Boys’ Brigade ‘Faith in Young People’ and ‘Free to Live’ a project to build a home for abandoned street children from the red-light district of the city of Pune, India.
