Kelso Country Churches Guild

About the Guild

Our Guild at Kelso Country Churches celebrated its ninetieth birthday on 11th November 2019. We meet once a month from October to March, and have an interesting and stimulating programme of speakers. The meetings take place in Stichill Church Hall, on the second Wednesday of the month at 2:30pm

Every year we support two charities, and have raised a lot of money for worthy causes. This year our two charities are, the Boys Brigade, and Seema’s Project.

The Guild is no longer a woman-only organisation, and we welcome men to join us.

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.
