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”.

With about 15,000 members, the guild is one of Scotland’s largest voluntary organisations.

The guild has raised money for various charities across the globe, including eating disorder charity Blether with the Beat and adoption charity Homes for Good.
