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 23,000 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.’

Since 1997, the Guild has followed a pattern of adopting a three year strategy to guide its worship, study and project work, focusing on a different aspect of that strategy each year. The strategy for 2015-18 is “Be Bold,Be Strong” The theme this year is “Go in Joy”
