The Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland which encourages both men and women to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.
Last October we had a speaker from Compassion UK. He told us of their work with young children all over the world. He showed us some moving clips about children looking after their siblings and how they cannot get an education. The Guild decided to sponsor one such child whose name is Alvaro and comes from Columbia. he is about 8 years of age. We donate a small amount each month and this allows Alvaro to receive an education and this will hopefully mean that he will be able to gain employment and therefore make money to feed his family.
I was asked to write to Alvaro to let him know about our guild and I have just received our first letter back from him.
The Guild meet every second Monday at 7.30pm in the large hall.
