Kelso Country Churches Guild

Our Guild at Kelso Country Churches normally meets once a month from October to March, and we have an interesting and stimulating programme of speakers. We are not meeting together just now but hope to get back to meeting together again sometime in the new year. The meetings take place in Stichill Church Hall, on the second Wednesday of the month at 2:30pm when they are on. We will update this page when we begin again.

Every year we support two of the 6 projects that the Guild are supporting nationally and we have raised a lot of money for worthy causes. This year the two projects we are supporting are Malawi Fruits and the Sailors’ Society. (click on the images to find out more)

The Church of Scotland Guild has announced that members have raised more than £500,000 over the last three-year fundraising cycle, which will be shared between their designated projects.

The new 2021 – 2024 partner projects will be announced in the next few weeks.

Members of the Guild with the Rev Stephen and Kath Manners at the Guild Church service at Stichill on 27th October 2019

This service marked the 90th anniversary of the inauguration of what was Stichill and Hume Woman’s Guild.  Although now known as Kelso Country Churches Guild, it is heartening to know that through the many challenges and changes which have taken place, the Guild in Stichill is still going strong.  In true Guild tradition, the ladies planned and took part in the service and then served Lunch and birthday cake, and there was a display of photographs highlighting events and local people over these 90 years which caused much interest.
