Our branch of what was initially ‘The Women’s Guild’ was started by Dr. Charteris and local ladies of gentry in 1896 and a branch is still in existence today. We are one of the oldest branches and meet every fortnight in the same church hall as our predecessors.
During the great War women were very much to the forefront of aid and Clackmannan was no different in their support. We have had over the years a varied collection of guests, from learning about our own local history to hearing about the work our Project Partners carry out in various parts of the world. We support Blythswood Care at Christmas time with our shoebox appeal . We also have ‘sister’ guild evening when we meet up with other Guilds in our area. Our annual World Day of Prayer is always very well received and comes from various parts of the globe.
Programme: Dates, events
The Guild will begin this autumn programme on the 7th October 2019 and will meet fortnightly on Monday evenings at 7.30 pm in the church hall off High Street.
Our first evening will be a chat with Rev Margaret Shuttleworth who will be telling us about her journey to the ministry and will also conduct communion on the evening.
On 21st October Lesley Arthur will be our guest and she will speak about Reachout.
Remember we are always on the lookout for new members and male members would be most welcome.
This year the ladies on the Guild Trip had a very enjoyable day outing to Lanark Heritage Village. Read more about the day and see some photo's in the July/August edition of the Window Magazine.
