The Guild

About the The Guild

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. With around 20,000 members, the 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 at local and national levels. The Guild’s motto which is taken from Acts 27, verse 23: ‘Whose we are and Whom we serve.’

The individual Guild branches attached to congregations within the Hamilton Presbytery area are grouped as Guilds Together into two area councils (North and South) - the North Council embracing the Guilds in Airdrie and Coatbridge, and the South encompassing the Guild branches distributed throughout the remaining area of the Presbytery.

Each of these area councils has its own Convener, Secretary and Committee, whose contact details can be had on application to the Presbytery Office of the National Guild Office in Edinburgh.
