Now in our 91st year and following an excellent 90th birthday celebration we must move on looking ahead to the future.

Our church is changing for so many reasons. The Guild as an integral part of the church and one of Scotland’s largest voluntary organisations with 800 Guilds and 15,000 members we must also change.

On 12th March representatives from National Guilds will meet in Perth to discuss “The Way Forward”, perhaps daunting and also exciting.  I hope to report on the outcome in the June edition of MaxWest ‘Contact’.

Grateful thanks to all who donated to Mathia Church student Bursary fund; 11 students will benefit from this.
