Evening Guild

 

guildThe 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 Guild’s motto which is taken from Acts 27, verse 23 is ‘Whose we are and Whom we serve.’

The Evening Guild meets every Thursday evening at 7.30pm throughout the winter. 

The Evening Guild is a group of about 25 ladies who enjoy the fellowship of the Guild.  We meet every Thursday evening from October to March and have an interesting programme of speakers, demonstrations and events.

2017 – 18
With the beautiful summer weather we are all enjoying our thoughts turn to holidays and day trips. No more so then the Evening Guild’s summer outing.

This year our trip began with a guided tour of Bute Fabrics, where our private tour guide, Margaret Ann took us on a very informative journey through the weaving rooms, cutting room and quality control section where the material is still examined by human eyes and any flaws painstakingly repaired. An insight into this global industry with tales of clients from America, Sweden, Australia and of course the Royal Family gave us a greater understanding of the important part Bute Fabrics plays in the manufacturing world. A hand on experience was on offer so check the notice board to see some of the ladies in action.

Full of weaving knowledge it was time for tea, so the Glenburn Hotel was our next stop. A most enjoyable time was had by all. Laughter filled the room as a resplendent display of treats was served and the coffee and tea flowed along with the chatter. We certainly had a Grand Day Out

So now we look to the new session. The committee is already hard at work organizing an interesting and fun packed syllabus. We start on the Thursday the 18th of October 2018 at 7.30pm

More dates will be announced over the summer so you can all join us at our St Andrew’s night, Morning Market and our Joint meeting.

All are very welcome so please think about joining us occasionally or every Thursday. We would love to see you there.
