Return to Church Life

The Guild

Marchmont St Giles’ is in the happy position of having an active Guild which presents a varied programme of events and speakers during the year.  It has regular Morning Coffee  which have found a new lease of life from the parents of children attending events in the Church Centre on a Saturday morning.  This has a twofold benefit in raising awareness of the Guild Projects which are aimed at helping disadvantaged people around the world and in raising funds for these projects.  The Guild are grateful for this support.
