Donate to the Church
The Church of Scotland Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland which invites and encourages both women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.
The Guild is a hugely important part of the work of the Church of Scotland. Your support helps us ensure that it continues to play its part going forward.
