the Guild

With around 30,000 members, the Church of Scotland 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.

Members meet in local groups at congregational level, in regional groups known as presbyterial councils, and once a year at our national meeting, to which each group can send a representative.

The current constitution of the Guild was adopted in 1997, after a major review of the present organisation's predecessor, the Woman's Guild. In 2003, again in 2010, the Guild reviewed its constitution to ensure more inclusive language. Church of Scotland The Guild

The Guild resumes on Thursday 10th October ???? at 7.30 pm in Hall A. We look forward to a very varied programme. If you have never been to the Guild before please come along; you will be made most welcome.

Men’s Outreach

Quite often men are at their happiest, meeting with friends to enjoy events such as curry nights or Italian nights. Men should be able to meet on a fairly regular basis for a variety of activities, and we should aim to actively promote these to friends to come along and join us.

Around 20—25 men meet on the last Thursday of every second month at various restaurants around Ayr and share a meal and fellowship, and get to know each other a little more.

Friendship Club

This group was established in February 2017 to provide older adults with an opportunity to meet their friends and form new relationships with others over a cup of tea.

We meet in Hall A between 1.30 and 3.30pm on Friday afternoons throughout the year.There is an average attendance of 22-24 people (men and women) who enjoy a good blether and sometimes take part in quizzes.

If you can volunteer to give lifts to some of our members to and from the club please contact Eleanor Lunn on 01292 268310 or speak with her at Church.
