Sandra welcomed everyone to the evening and opened with an over view of the Guilds theme for 2015-18 'Be bold , be strong ' .

The DVD followed.
The moderator of the general assembly's talk reiterated the guilds theme and praised the work done by the Guilds around Scotland raising funds supporting their projects and their own churches. A dedicated presence in their local communities. He encouraged the guild to share their faith with the next generation. He also encouraged 'shalom' and the important role of the peacemaker and how guild members can themselves be peacemakers. The power of time for prayer was encouraged as the way to  free the spirit from the stress and worry from our lives.
The guild Convener and guild colleagues spoke about the lasting impact of the work of Mary Slessor in Nigeria and her legacy of the celebration of twins and multiple births.
