The Guild


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 organisations.


The National Guild website is full of information - please go to

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


Our spring programme started with a talk and slides from Morag Uytman about the Free to Live Trust in Pune, India.  This project  supports sex workers and their children who have been trafficked,  and is one of the six projects being supported by all Guilds for the next three years.


The remainder of this session’s programme has changed slightly from the published syllabus.  On 13th February Rev Mary Haddow will be speaking about this year’s Guild theme, Seeking the Way, the first in the national Guild’s three year strategy of One Journey, Many Roads - which you may have seen illustrated by the Guild tree entry in the Christmas Tree Festival!


Then on March 13th David Frame will speak about - and show slides of - his experiences visiting Korea and Japan last year.  Our April meeting on Weds 10th will be a celebration of Easter in Music, Word and Song.


All are welcome to join us for any of our meetings at 2.30pm in  the Tryst Lounge.


We also hope to welcome you to Coffee & Chat on Wednesday mornings 10.30 to 11.45, again in The Tryst Lounge.

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.
