The Guild at Fairmilehead Parish Church

'Whose we are and whom we serve'

GUILD THEME -   GO IN LOVE - FEED THE MINDS

Feed the Minds is an ecumenical Christian charity founded in 1964 that works in partnership with grassroots partners to deliver education projects that empower communities to combat poverty and injustices across the Global South

We are an Afternoon Guild who meet at 2.30pm in the church's Frogston Hall on the first and third Wednesdays of each month from October to April. We have a very varied syllabus for the coming year and warmly welcome new and existing members to our meetings.

WHO ARE THE GUILD?

   

 

 

 

 

 

The Church of Scotland Guild has around 30,000 members. Its purpose is to unite women and men in Christian fellowship and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action. Annual themes were introduced to encourage Guilds to plan their programmes more effectively. 

We have a different Chairperson at each meeting and we invite speakers from our own church, from the local community and further afield to talk on interesting, topical subjects that are creative, charitable or social.

The Guild restarts in October 2017 and their programme of talks and meetings is shown below
