The theme for the year is “Seeking The Way” and our meetings will explore this message in a variety of ways.
Alison Caskie welcomed guild members to an inaugural meeting titled 'Seeking the Way', the speaker for the evening was Rev. Kenneth Stott. Kenny gave an inspiring talk on this topic, giving the members an insight as individuals, the church and the guild moving forward.
We have an enjoyable programme arranged and everyone in our church family will be made very welcome. The Guild meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month usually starting at 7.30pm in the Church Hall (small).

On 27 Feb 2019, Ann Swan welcomed Harriet Shaw from Mackies.
Harriet gave a very interesting presentation about the history of Mackies, how a family business became the house hold brand we know today.
Harriet concentrated on the Crisp production part of the business, guild members now know how they are made, which countries they are exported too and the popular flavours that are liked in the UK and internationally.
On Wednesday 13th March the Guild welcomed Mr. Bob Ockenden who gave a most informative and interesting talk on “Teen Ranch”.
It was set up in Inchture in 1984 and now has similar ventures in countries such as Poland, Kenya and Nepal. It is a Christian Outdoor Activity Centre catering for 10-17year olds offering sports such as Horse Riding, Kayaking and Archery to name but a few. “Time Out” each day is when everyone comes together to hear the Gospel message and enjoy fellowship with one another.
