Guild

Welcome to Liberton Kirk Guild

The Guild meetings are open to everyone.

The Guild meets every first and third Monday evenings of each month in the Anderson Hall, beginning at 7.30pm until approximately 9pm. It also meets in the afternoon of the second Wednesday of each month in the Small Hall starting at 2.15pm until approximately 3.45pm.     There is a charge of £3 per meeting, with refreshments being served.

You will find copies of the syllabus on the Welcome tables in Church and in the Kirk Centre entrance.    Please take one.    More information about the meetings can be found in the monthly church magazine, on a Sunday in the church notices and on posters on the various church noticeboards.

At the Guild we are aiming for a sense of inclusivity, whilst sharing with others interesting and thought-provoking meetings.

There is an opportunity on alternate Monday evenings and monthly Wednesday afternoons to join us in furthering friendships within the church and encouraging outreach to the wider community.

Gladys Montgomery, Guild Convener, and the Committee would be delighted if you could find time to join us, at some point, during this current session.     The Secretary is Evelyn Ogilvie, tel. 0131 664 1171.

Guild members do enjoy their meetings and their social get-togethers!    Here are some snapshots of the outing in April 2018 to afternoon tea at a hotel in Peebles:
