Erskine Baptist Church
We give thanks as our community engagement expands through art and craft groups, school and nursery contacts, and the continuing baby and toddler group. Please pray as we look to run Alpha later in the year, to engage with the many people who come through the building each week.
The grant for our community worker will end this autumn and we need prayer to consider the way forward on a tight and limited budget.
Please also pray for the Erskine Churches Together group of leaders as two of the churches in the community will be in vacancy.
Falkirk Baptist Church
Praise: We thanks and praise the Lord for growth, a vision & values statement, and an increasing sense that God is going to bring new believers to us via the Will Graham Celebration of Hope event in June.
Prayer: We ask for prayer that the new vision of the church will move us into new ministry areas; for our journey into restructuring the leadership of the church; and efficiency as we update our data and child protection policies.
Forres: The Lighthouse Church
Toward the end of last year we held an Alpha Course which saw twenty participants join seven leaders for the full duration, resulting in a great time of fellowship, plus three conversions and baptisms. We give thanks to God for this and ask that you join us in prayers for the new disciples to grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord.
