The Guild


The Guild is a Church of Scotland organisation which supports people within the Church and wider community.  The National Guild website is full of information - please go to Church of Scotland, Serve, The Guild.


Pitlochry Guild meets on the first Wednesday of the month from October to April, 2.30pm in The Tryst Lounge.  All welcome.


This year’s national Guild theme is Go in Love which was addressed at our October meeting by Rev. Liz Baker of Holy Trinity Church. It was also the theme of the service on 19th November, led by members of the Guild during Guild Week. Our now traditional Haggis Lunch, also during Guild Week, was well attended. Deirdre Davis spoke  passionately about Malawi which she had visited with Tearfund in 2016.  Now we look forward to our Christmas celebration on 13th December.


Our first meeting in 2018 will be on Weds 10th January when we shall have an illustrated talk about The Enchanted Forest.  All welcome.

Tryst for Prayer
On Wednesday mornings a group meets in the Tryst, for half an hour of singing, Biblical reflection and open prayer. People are most welcome to attend and participate in prayer in silence: there is never any pressure on individuals to pray aloud. The Prayer Group meets at 10.00 am when the Guild coffee mornings are taking place.








Coffee and Chat
Coffee mornings take place each week starting at 10:30 am until around 11:30am. Volunteers are needed each week to prepare, serve and clear away the tea and coffee.

The Choir
















































The choir supports the congregation in the provision of music during the Sunday worship. It also produces additional musical items, particularly for Christian festivals such as Christmas and Easter. Practices are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 7:30pm during the autumn and winter months and the choir is always keen to recruit new members. Those interested should get in touch with the Choir Master Gordon Mackenzie, via the church office (Tel. 01796 474 010) in the first instance.








Talents Group




The group meets fortnightly on Wednesday mornings alongside the Guild 'Coffee and Chat', from September until April. Made up of ladies, there is nothing to prevent gentlemen from coming along too! Their ‘talents’ are many and varied: clothes and toys have been made for Oxfam, the Ekwendeni Centre in Malawi , premature baby units in Scotland and hospitals for children in Europe . Christmas Craft Fairs and Coffee Mornings raise funds for local organisations. Perhaps more importantly, their talents include discussion and listening, offering friendship and support to all who care to come along. Contact person: Jenny Cruikshank.



























The Banner created by the Talents Group, commemorates the union of the East and West churches of Pitlochry.
