ABOUT WOMEN'S GUILD

Mrs. Frances Jones Melville Jones ( wife of Rt. Rev. Jones, the then Bishop of Lagos) noted that some women could not join the general women body of the Mothers Union either because they were aged spinsters who had never married or because they were second or third wives in a polygamous union.

These women needed to be spiritually guided even though they did not qualify to join the Mothers Union.. The Women's Guild was inaugurated on 23rd May 1921 in Lagos Diocese.

It finally became constitutional that before any woman could join the Mothers Union, they must first join the Women's Guild Hence, Women's Guild is open to all Women who are full members of the Church.

The main colours of the Women's Guild is green which could be worn with white. In Enugu Diocese, the Women Guild meetings hold on different days to that of Mothers Union.

The Diocesan executives of the Guild work with the Diocesan President of the Women Organization to pioneer the affairs of the group. The Rules of the Women’s Guild helps every Woman to understand what is expected of her as a member of the group.
