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 (7.30 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. 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 2016 is  “caring for mother earth in Bolivia”.

For further information please contact the Guild President, Freda Robertson on 0131 449 2593.

 

A resume of the most recent event is reported below.

It was a magnificent day when the Guild set off on its annual day out.  Leaving the Gibson Craig we journeyed to Kellie Castle for tea and scones.

Kellie Castle in Fife dates from as early as the 14th century and has magnificent plaster ceilings, painted panelling and fine furniture designed by Sir Robert Lorimer.

It also contains a long-concealed mural by the celebrated Arts & Crafts pioneer, Phoebe Anna Traquair. The Arts & Crafts garden is packed with beautiful borders of old-fashioned roses and herbaceous plants, as well as fruit and vegetables – all grown and more rhubarb than you could wish for – they must make many crumbles and  sponges,  Acres of woodland walks, a bird hide and an abundance of nature and a beautiful day – you could not ask for anything else.

We then travelled to St Andrews where the ladies did a spot of retail therapy with one purchased a mop – what else would you go to St Andrews for!!

Joining the coach we travelled to Kinghorn to the Bay View Hotel where we were served a sumptuous dinner and as we looked across the Forth on a wonderful sunny evening all admitted it had been a “good day out”.

The Guild is now looking forward to commencing in September and further details of the programme and times will be updated as soon as confirmation from the speakers has been received.
