Jenny Wilson (General Director’s PA)
Please pray for the arrangements for our annual Assembly over the next couple of months. Please pray for God’s guidance and wisdom as I make final preparations and liaise with the venue, our speakers and exhibitors. Give thanks that we serve an amazing God and for the privilege of serving our family of churches across Scotland.
Kirkwall Baptist Church
Give thanks for our recent Growing Leaders course. Pray for those who were on the course as they seek to action it – both in our gathered church community and also as they are scattered into their families and workplaces and neighbourhoods. Pray for the mentoring relationships that were established, that they might continue to be a blessing. Give thanks for new baptisms, new members, new deacons. Pray for conversions and baptisms – that’s what we really, really long to see.
Knightswood Baptist Church
Please give thanks for the leadership going through the LEAD Academy programme and for the vision and strategy agreed by the church as a result. Please give thanks for a further time of growth in the church and for the sense of anticipation as to what the Lord may wish to do through us in this next stage of church life for his glory. Please pray for our discipleship and mission as a church and for an increased effectiveness in our evangelism to the local schools and community.
Ladywell Baptist Church
We give thanks for the on-going children’s work with our ‘Joy-Club’ and Sunday School, as well as our Youth Fellowship. We give thanks for six young adults within our fellowship who lead, teach and work within the Youth Fellowship. We give thanks for the spiritual growth, faithfulness and support of our members and adherents. Please pray for us as we celebrate 50 years of Baptist witness in Livingston and the formation of the Baptist Church. On 30th September at our morning service in Inveralmond Community High School, Rev Bruce Milne, the first pastor of the church, will be our guest speaker. Please pray for the visit, health and ministry of Bruce as he comes and shares with us.
