Jim Purves, Mission and Ministry Advisor, BUS
As many historic parts of the church in Scotland endure serious decline, join in giving thanks for the many signs of health and growth we see across our Union churches. Pray that congregations, holding to what is essential, face the challenge of being faithful to Christ in a secular society. Please pray for those leading congregations, that they keep focussed on ministry that serves mission; and pray for mission initiatives into communities, that express both the love and integrity of Jesus Christ.
Greenock Baptist Church
Hamilton Baptist Church
We are thankful to see new faces regularly at our services, with increasing numbers of them being from far flung corners of the world. This brings a freshness and vibrancy to church life that is much appreciated by the wider fellowship.
For a number of years we have been operating an outreach ministry to the Hillhouse area of Hamilton. The focus has largely been on children’s work, and a small team has served there faithfully and effectively. Recently a number of team members have had to stand down for a variety of reasons. We are now seeking God for the future, is it time to finish the work there, or is it time to develop the work in new ways? Join with us in prayer for the Exodus ministry at Hillhouse.
