Arran Baptist Church
Give thanks for the increased numbers attending our Sunday service and for Lunchbox our fortnightly outreach into the community. We are grateful to God as we see a growing ministry to visitors to the island. Please pray that our fellowship continues to be a place where they feel welcomed and encouraged.
Ayr Baptist Church
We give thanks for continued ministries both internal & external, reaching out & reaching in. Please join us in prayer as we seek to build on ministry over the recent Christmas period. We are very blessed with so many community people of all ages continuing to use our facilities through the week. Some of these are through ministries we run whilst others are using the facilities for their own purposes. Please pray that they will sense something of Jesus love but also that we will be guided and enabled to reach them directly with ‘Good News’ as appropriate. We also give thanks for a renewed burden for prayer amongst some in our congregation with our weekly mid-week prayer and bible study gathering being particularly appreciated. Our links with a health organization called ‘ABC Albania’ continue to grow and we look forward to rolling out more support opportunities in 2017 that will help them share Jesus’ love practically. Overall, may God be glorified through the praising of His people here and the preaching of His word.
