Motto: Whose I am and Whom I Serve
Midstocket Guild has strong membership. We meet on the first Monday of the month at 7.30pm and the third Monday at 2.30pm with a break during the summer months. We follow the three-year strategy, set by the National Committee of the Church of Scotland Guild and actively support the Guild Projects. Our syllabus this year has a variety of interesting topics. Visitors are welcome at any of our meetings.

The Guild Party 2020
It was a stormy night but this did not deter members of the Guild from coming to the annual party. As usual the Committee had a range of games and stories to entertain us. Joyce organised a new game where she gave us the letters for the word 'celebration'. After she gave us a clue, we had to find an appropriate word from the letters in 'celebration'. Much deliberation was needed. Edna and Doreen entertained us with short stories amid much hilarity. A wonderful buffet supper was then enjoyed by everyone. Thank you to the Committee for giving us such an enjoyable evening.
Guild Coffee Morning 2019
We had a very successful coffee morning on 9th November 2019. With your support, we raised the tremendous sum of £1,878.80.
Guild Meeting - Drama Wifies
Guild Meeting - Armchair Exercises
The Guild year at Midstocket Church was a most successful one with a variety of interesting speakers. We had, however, a change of venue for our last meeting. Toes were tapping, arms swaying, the Bee Gee’s playing in the background……we were in the church hall enjoying a “work out” with our lovely keep fit instructress. The fantastic music made our armchair exercises seem so easy and an hour later, we felt we could do it all over again! We then adjourned to our normal meeting place, the Garden Lounge, for a well – deserved cup of tea.
The Guild Walk
Every May Guilds in Aberdeen hold their annual Guild Walk. This year the walk was hosted by the Guild at Midstocket Church. It was very much a social event. As well as the walk, there were quizzes to answer for the less able for the walk. A welcome cup of tea / coffee/ juice and a “fine piece” was served back at the church.
This year it was an intergenerational event with representatives from the Boys’ Brigade and Girls’ Brigade.
The Guild Party 2019
The Guild held their annual party on Monday 7th January. Sandwiches, sausage rolls and quiches were served followed by eclairs and meringues which needless to say were enjoyed by everyone. Entertainment followed with Edna and June telling us amusing stories. These gave our minds a rest from the quizzes which we were trying to solve. The competitive spirit was very evident. Everyone went home in good spirits having enjoyed a wonderful party. Thanks are due to the Committee who organised the event.
