Afternoon Guild



The  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 Afternoon Guild meets in the Church Centre at 2.00pm on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month from October to March.  New members, both ladies and gentlemen, are always welcome.



This is a photo of the  Afternoon Guild scarf on Phase 1 of its travels this summer. The itinerary was from Bute to Calgary Alberta, then meandering through the Rocky Mountains to Vancouver Island, B.C. then return to Bute. The photo was taken on the Athabasca Glacier in the central Rockies. Estimated mileage was 10,890.
