We have a strong, supportive and dedicated Guild of around 40 members and a small Leadership Team. Meetings are held twice a month, on Thursdays, from September to March, and monthly throughout the summer. Our meetings offer a varied programme of fellowship, praise, and fun, and you are assured of a warm welcome and a cup of tea/coffee.
Members are also invited to join in meetings with Perth and Kinross Guilds Together, and National Guild events such as the Annual Gathering in Dundee, and Big Sing in Edinburgh and Glasgow.
Auchterarder Parish Church Guild follows the National Guild in a three year themed cycle of work, and supports the six chosen projects.
The guild strategy for 2021 – 24 is, “Look forward in faith”, and the projects we will be supporting through our prayers, publicity and fundraising are –
Blether with Beat – Eating disorders
Kazunzu, Tanzania - Village of Hope. The Vine Trust
Unida, Brazil – Hear Our Voice. Theological education for women
Home for Good – Finding homes for vulnerable children
Starchild – Finding the light in every child. Uganda
Chocolate Heaven in S E Asia. Pioneers UK
To learn more about these inspiring projects as we journey with them in the next three years, come along to our meetings, which are normally held at 2.30 or 7.30pm.
Depending on government and Church of Scotland guidelines, we hope to resume meeting together during the summer, with a welcome back, Strawberry Tea. This could be held outside if the weather is favourable – watch this space!
