Guild Update
​Jan/Feb 2018

2018 A New Year with new challenges! A New Year with new opportunities!

The last two months of 2017 were really busy for the Guild. In November, we were delighted to welcome Dr Mary Higgins, a volunteer worker with the 'Let us Shine Charity' which focuses on educating girls in Ghana. After a fascinating talk, the Guild ladies were delighted to send Mary home with huge bags full of pretty sets of underwear for the girls and some beautiful hand-knitted hats for babies. Our Guild ladies never cease to amaze me with their talents!

We celebrated Guild Week, in the third week of November. Our Guild Theme was 'Go in Love' and we were delighted to play an important part in the Sunday Service. We also enjoyed an evening of fellowship concentrating on our theme. It's so
important to make people feel welcome at our Guild Meetings.

In December we had our Project Fundraiser. 74 members of The Stirling Rock Choir entertained us and they were absolutely fantastic. Everyone had a great night and we raised £796.35, an amazing amount!

Our final Guild Meeting was our Christmas Meal at Stirling Golf Club where we enjoyed a great evening, great food, great service and great company!

We are now looking forward to our future meetings. If you like the
sound of any of our meetings, please come along and join us!

Prayer for the Guild
By Rev. Dan Harper
Heavenly Father,
We thank you for the Guild.
that they seek to be Bold and be strong.
that the seek to Go with Joy.

We delight in all they do for us here in Bridge of Allan, the seen and the unseen.
The forging of bonds and friendship, and expressing together a caring loving spirit in our congregation, our home and community.

We thank you for all the guild do around the world as well. The difference they have made in your name to countless lives over countless generations.

Heavenly Father, as we see the guild it is obvious to us “Whose they are and Whom they serve”!
Help us all to learn from their example.

In Jesus name we pray. 


The Guild...

As we head towards Christmas at breakneck speed the Guild are busy as ever. Our Project fundraiser in November raised £602 which was a fantastic amount. A big thanks to everyone who came along to 'A Night at the Silent Movies' and special thanks to Forrester Pyke for his amazing accompaniment and the ladies of the Guild who helped out with catering and support.

We have been very involved in our theme 'Go in Joy' and enjoyed a discussion evening during Guild week. We are now looking forward to our Christmas meal at the Royal Hotel and time with friends and family over Christmas.

The New Year starts for the Guild on the 17th Jan with Tricia Chillas and her Armchair Aerobics, can't wait for that. A great way to work off the 'Christmas Indulgencies'.

Our last January meeting is one of our Project Partners - Prospects - All Friends Together which is about helping churches to welcome people with learning difficulties and include them in all aspects of church life.

​We look forward to seeing all members in the New Year and we would be delighted to welcome anyone who has never been to the Guild before.

Come along and give it a try, you might be pleasantly surprised. We are all quite friendly!!                   .
