Cadder Parish Church, Bishopbriggs.

The aim of the Guild is to invite and encourage women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to enable them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.

Guild Strategies, Themes and Projects

The strategy for 2016-17 continues to be "Be Bold, Be Strong!" This strategy has been chosen to encourage the Guild as it faces many challenges and opportunities in its service and its operations.

The theme for this year is "Go in Joy".

Projects

The Guild supports 6 partnership projects during a 3 year period.

This year Cadder Guild is supporting the following 2 projects: Street Pastors Scotland and the Haiti Project.

In order to support these Projects we are having a fundraising Concert on Thursday 23rd February 2017 in Cadder South Halls.

In March 2017 we are hoping to visit our Link Guild in Fairlie. Cadder has had a very happy link with Fairlie for over 20 years.

Meetings in The South Hall, Kirkintiiloch Road at 7:30 p.m. on alternate Thursdays and as otherwise indicated.

Although our meetings for the session have finished there are still some things to take place.

"Echoes of Assembly" is on Monday 5th June 2017 in Springfield Cambridge Church at 7.30 pm. The speaker that night will be Rev Jane Denniston . If you are able to go could you please phone me so I can give Springfield Cambridge Guild numbers for catering.

The National Gathering of the Guild takes place on Saturday 2nd of September 2017 in Dundee.

As an alternative to going to Dundee , Lenzie Union Guild will be screening The Gathering live in the New Hall, Moncrieff Avenue, Lenzie. Last year they met at 10am for coffee and scones before the meeting started at 10.30am. Some folks stayed for the morning session only and others brought a packed lunch and stayed all day. Please feel free to do what suits you.

A warm welcome is extended to all Guilds and friends who might wish to go along.

A warm invitation is extended to all ladies to join Kenmure Ladies Evenings. (otherwise known as Pam's People). These are informal gatherings and the next one will be on Monday 12th June at 7.30pm in Kenmure Church Hall.

A few dates for your diary so hopefully you will be able to go to at least one of them and enjoy the fellowship extended. Again best wishes to everyone for a very happy and relaxing summer.
