At the last meeting of the Church of Scotland Guildâ€™s National Executive
committee, it was announced that Ann Bowie from Moray is to be the
incoming National Convener of the Church of Scotland Guild. Ann was born
and educated in Glasgow, prior to moving north in 1967 with her late
husband and family.

her grandchildren, golf, singing and the WRVS, Ann reflects on the huge
privilege of being asked to serve the Guild at the highest level: â€œI can
fulfil the promises I made when I became a member of the Church, ever
mindful of the Guild motto, â€˜Whose we are and Whom we serveâ€™. I trust that
during my time as National Convener I will be given the strength to serve
my Master through the fellowship of this great movement.â€?
