'Whose we are and Whom we serve.'
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 20,000 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.'
The Blairgowrie Parish Church branch meets on Mondays every fortnight - Afternoon at 2 pm and Evenings at 7 pm. The meetings are in the Church Hall. We enjoy a variety of speakers on a great range of topics and an occasional demonstration.
Worship is an important part of each meeting.
We enjoy great fun and friendship, and are always keen to welcome new members.
