  • The Church of Scotland Guild is a movement within the Church of Scotland that invites and encourages both women and men to commit their lives to Jesus Christ and enables them to express their faith in worship, prayer and action.  With around 17,000 members, the Guild is one of Scotland's largest voluntary organisation. Although women make up the bulk of our membership, increasingly, men are becoming members and taking active roles at local and national levels.       The Guild's motto is taken from Acts 27, verse 23: "Whose we are and Whom we serve."  The  Guild has a part of the Church of Scotland website all of its own and has lots of very interesting information.  Every three years, a strategy with three annual themes is decided by the Guild. They also decide on a discussion topic every year.  Have a look on the website and get a better idea of the work this kirk organisation does.  https://www.churchofscotland.org.uk/serve/the-guild/  And check out our own Guild Page.

  • Requests for telephone advice and appointments. Things are getting busy again at the Health Centre and it would be really helpful if all requests for same day telephone advice and appointments could be made by 10am. All requests for an appointment will require discussion with a GP or Practice Nurse. Any calls received after 10am will be put on for the following day unless it is decided that they are too urgent to wait. This is because most of our medical and nursing staff have booked appointments after 11am and do not have time to take calls after the initial morning phone surgery (which can have as many as 80+ calls on it). Thank you for your support and understanding.
