St Andrews Baptist Church
Though our main prayer point is for God to graciously guide us to a new pastor (after the retirement early September of Andrew Rollinson) the word ‘vacancy’ seems a bit anomalous. as there is a staff team of five remaining. Pray particularly for: Paulus de Jong who is leading the staff team, our search group (led by our Moderator John Greenshields) and our elders and deacons. Pray for the continuing outreach of the church through our student ministry AWAKE, our fruitfarm ministry and our version of Messy Church.
St Mary’s Community Church
Numbers in our Sunday congregation are very small; along with this come financial issues. But we are building relationships through community activities; pray that these will lead to people meeting and following Jesus. Pray that we will clearly hear God’s voice for the way ahead.
St Ninians Community Church
We praise God for a great week of outreach in August which led to many conversations and new people coming along to services, including children, as well as bringing the whole fellowship together. Pray for the ongoing involvement in the community, especially through the Re:Fresh Cafe on Fridays and a possible Alpha Course coming up, and that lives would continue to be changed by encounter with Jesus.
Stenhouse Baptist Church
We are loving getting to know our community better as more people from our church move into the area. Pray we could be good neighbours as Jesus’ calls us to be. Pray also for the work happening with ex-offenders and in the Saughton Prison.
