Motto: Whose we are and whom we serve.
Jackson Guild meets every fortnight - 1st & 3rd Tuesday starting in September until the end of March at 7.30pm in the downstairs small hall.
Carol Ann Hendrie is the convenor, Sandra Andrews is the Secretary/Project partner and Jean Cane the Treasurer. Capitation fees of £10 per year are collected at our first meeting. This money goes straight to Presbytery office in Edinburgh and is used for literature and theme packs, which are an excellent help in our meetings. We pay £3 each per fortnight and have one meeting per session to raise money for our projects. We have six new projects every three years, they are selected by the national committee and all guilds support these projects.
Our present projects are Street Pastors, Care for the family, Christian Aid, Feed the Minds, Mission International and Prospects. These projects run form 2015 to 2018 and as at August 2016 we have given £31867.0
We at Jackson also support Erskine House and the Mission Leprosy.
Our meetings are very relaxed and the ladies all enjoy each others company, we have 24 ladies at the moment. We open our meeting with a short worship time, then as is usual in Jackson sing quite a few hymns and have invited guests to speak or sing or share what they are doing in their walk with the Lord ( we try to include two speakers from the projects) Then at the close we have our tea, the meeting ends between 8.45 and 9pm, but quite a few ladies linger for a chat sometimes till 9.15pm.
If you are aged between 18 years & 98 years young please come and join us, we would love your company.
