Murroes & Tealing
The Regnal League is a Christian men's organisation established by the Rev Donald Standfast during the First World War with the aim of encouraging Christian discipleship, friendship and fellowship.
Sidlaw Regnal Circle meets in Murroes Church Hall on the second and fourth Monday evenings from September to April. The meetings start at 7.30 and finish around 9.30pm following tea and sandwiches. We have various speakers, slide and video shows, and other events, including trips to places of interest. In the past we have visited the Maggie's Centre, a working Wind Turbine, Dundee's Mills Observatory, the Royal Marine base at Arbroath, the Bo'ness Preservation Railway, the Museum of Flight near Edinburgh, and the Secret Bunker in Fife to name but a few.
Our meetings are open to all and there is no obligation to join. Please feel free to come along to a meeting as a visitor. We would be pleased to welcome you.
For over 125 years The Guild has harnessed the energies of women in the work of the Church, but it is now an organisation for both men and women. With around 25,000 members, the Guild has made an impact around the world. Its Project Partnership Scheme which began in 1997 has encouraged members to pray for, learn about, and raise money for the most marginalised in society - those affected by poverty, drug abuse, homelessness, civil war and genocide. Every three years six projects, three from home and three from overseas, are chosen from 23 applications.
Over the last 17 years the scheme has raised more than £2 million - A magnificent amount entirely due to the hard work and dedication of Guild members.
Our Guild meets monthly from September to May on the third Wednesday evening of the month at 1.30pm or 7.30pm in Murroes Church Hall.

The choir usually meets on a Thursday evening from 7.00 to 9.00 from September to May and would warmly welcome any new members. Especially men as we particularly need more male voices! There is no requirement to read music - just come along and enjoy an evening of singing and fellowship.
Singing is good for you! A recent study has found that singing is beneficial for the heart as it increases the oxygen levels in the blood and, because of its aerobic nature, it exercises major muscle groups in the upper body even when sitting.
If you'd like further information, please email Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
Or just turn up on a Thursday evening - you will be made most welcome.
