The Church of Scotland Guild logo

Currie Kirk Guild is part of the Church of Scotland Guild which aims to encourage men and women to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.
 
The Guild meets in the Gibson Craig Halls on the first (10.00 am) and third (2.30 pm) Tuesday of every month from September to April. We have speakers on a wide range of subjects depending on our theme for any particular year. A copy of the Syllabus can be found by clicking here (this will open in a new window).  We also have a summer outing and a Christmas Party. Every three years, Guild headquarters identify six projects and encourage each Guild to raise money to support the project(s) of their choice.  The project which will be supported from September 2017 is “Prospects in Scotland”.For further information please contact the Guild President, Isobel Webber on 0131 451 5112. 
A resume of the most recent event is reported below.

Travelling to Selkirk where we stopped for morning coffee and a tour of Lochcarron Mill, which still produces tartan. Some decided to forego the tour and sit in the sunshine. Travelling through beautiful countryside to Eskdalemuir where in the distance we saw the Temple rise up behind the trees like a mirage. The peace of the area with all the birds was quite magical. The temple itself–beautifully decorated—was not so peaceful—with the sound of the drums and gongs—you would definitely not nod off during this service!. Onwards to our evening meal at the Cardrona Peebles, where the staff could not do enough or us, our own room, excellent meal and then they arranged the undernoted photo—homeward bound to Currie—all agreeing it had been a wonderful day out.
 

The Guilded Lillies is our choir and performs for us under the direction of Dudley who leads the ladies in song.

Planned socially for this session is our Christmas Party in December and a Scots Night in January. We also have our outing in May. Details will follow once arranged.

Please note that all Guild meetings are open and all are welcome. You do not have to join but can come along as a visitor. We will be pleased to see you.
