Church Of Scotland Guild

Evening Guild


We have a varied programme of speakers, both local and from further afield. Our syllabus usually includes a musical evening, talks on the Guild Projects, a special Christmas evening and 2 joint meetings with Riverside After Eights group. We have an end of season Dinner and an outing in June.

For several years now we have taken part in a Sunday Service to mark Guild Week in November, along with the Afternoon Guild and After Eights, and we have provided a Soup and Sweet Lunch for the congregation afterwards. The proceeds have gone to Church funds and/or the Guild Projects.

We usually send representatives to the Guild National Meeting in Dundee, travelling there with other Guilds from the Dumbarton Presbytery area.

We celebrated our own 40th Anniversary during session 2012 -2013. Most of our members attended a Dinner and Songs of Praise Evening organised by Dumbarton Presbyterial Council to mark the National Guild’s 125th Anniversary – along with around 214 members from other Guilds in the area.

Meeting details: Wednesday evenings at 7.30pm from October to March

Afternoon Guild


We are a friendly group of ladies who work together to support the work of Riverside Church and the Church of Scotland Guild. We meet once a week where we hold social events and welcome speakers on various subjects. Our meetings start with a short act of worship during which we remember “who we are and whom we serve”.
