  • Church Focus: Brightons Church

    This week we our church focus is on Brightons Church. They have this fantastic statement on their site: 

    "We believe that the gospel is a ‘change-agent’, bringing new life and fresh challenges to both the church and our society in every age. That means that while Brightons Church continues to prize its heritage and traditions, it also feels compelled to work creatively to bring the good news about Jesus to bear on each generation, convinced that the timeless message of the gospel speaks to your life with up-to-the-minute relevance and power." Dear God encourage them in their work and mission, Amen.

  • Moderator Derek

    We pray for Derek Browning, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland in 2017. 

    Derek has said, “During my year in office I will seek to explore and promote issues around hospitality and welcome...How we treat the stranger and the vulnerable person in our communities, particularly those with poor mental health, is key to how we express our Christian faith."

    We pray that he will be sustained and be an encouragement to the church.
