DEDICATION

The Guild Dedication will take place during the service on Sunday 28 October, 2018.

MONDAY 22nd OCTOBER, 2018

The next meeting will be held on this date and visiting speaker will be Elizabeth Wilkie,  Tesco Community Champion who will tell all about Tesco and the local groups they support.   The doors will be open at 1pm with the meeting starting at 1.30p. All are welcome,  members or not.  Tea and coffee will be provided too and the afternoon will conclude by 3pm.

The Guild held their first meeting on Monday 8th October at 1.30pm in the Church Hall at 1pm.  The speaker was Colin Ogilvie, our Locum who was warmly received.  The next meeting is on Monday 22nd October and refreshments will be served during the break.   If you would like to join the group meetings,  please feel free to attend.  You don't have to be a GUILD member and all are welcome,  young and old, male and female.   So come along and at least enjoy the company.

On Thursday 23rd of August an EGM was held by the Church Guild in our hall.   I am pleased to say the Guild will be continuing and we have (as some already know) a new Guild Treasurer who is Anne Taylor.  Many thanks to Anne for volunteering as every Guild needs a named Treasurer who is also a Church member.   Anne couldn't be at the meeting as she had prior commitments.   Many thanks to Margaret Muir from our Local Guild Council which is now known as Hamilton North Guilds Together  and to our Locum Colin Ogilvie for attending and for giving their continued support, it is much appreciated by us all.    The Guild meetings will resume in October and dates etc will be announced.  So come along and join us, you will be most welcome.   
Janice Kennedy, Convenor/Secretary.
 

APPEAL FOR TREASURER

Can you help our Guild? For over a hundred years there has been a guild associated with our church. Over the years they have contributed greatly to the life, mission and finances of the church.

To continue they need our support, especially with someone to act as treasurer. The job isn't onerous or time consuming and the paperwork is minimal. There also would be support available especially at the beginning. The treasurer doesn't need to be a member of the guild, or be required to join or attend, the position is open to men too.

If you could help, or know someone who could help out then please speak to either Janice Kennedy or Colin Ogilvie. If we can’t help support the guild in this way, there is a possibility the Guild may have to close, as this position is mandatory. 

 

 

We meet every second Monday at 1pm

 

AIM
