Methodist Guild

INTRODUCTION

It was originally called Wesley Guild, which was started first in Britain in 1896. The first of its kind in Ghana was started in Cape Coast in 1899 by the missionaries.

 

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

As the church choir was formed mainly with literate members of the Church, it became apparent that a similar organization would be needed for the illiterate youth. Incidentally, adult illiterate church members also joined in, even with children of about eight years old.

 

FUNCTIONS

In view of its predominant membership, a method of teaching and reading in vernacular devised by Dr. Frank Laubach was tried in Sunday school and Guild in the Methodist Church. For instance, the writer’s own illiterate elder sister (Hannah Bannerman) a Guild member, used to travel in the 1940s from Ampia-Ajumako to the circuit Ajumako Biseadze on Guild meeting days so as to benefit from the Mfantse teaching classes.

By this practice, she became literate in Mfantse which enabled her to read, sing and preach as a local preacher and a class leader.

The aim of the Guild is to mobilize its members for church activity and to train them as effective witnesses in the church and country to the gospel of Christ.

A member of the Methodist Guild is a servant of Christ on Mission in the local and worldwide community. Members practice this servant hood in family life, daily work, recreational and social activities as responsible citizens.

The organization is based on four “Cs” (4 C’s); Comradeship, Consecration, Culture, Christian service.
Comradeship; of all Methodists and of all Christians everywhere.

Consecration; of soul, mind and body to the Lord Jesus Christ, and confession of His name.
Culture; of the mind, to ensure thoughtful, diligent life.

Christian service; in Holy crusade for building up the church, the community, and the Kingdom of God.
