  • Church Focus: Larbert Old

    This week we hold Larbert Old Church in our prayers, and the ministry of their Interim Moderator Walter Williamson MBE and their Locum Minister Rev Helen Cook. Keep them inspired and encouraged in their mission:

    'By God's grace, we exist to glorify Him
    by growing in faith and Christ-likeness,
    and by sharing with others
    the Good News of Jesus Christ.'

  • 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.

  • Sanctuary First Update

    Pray for the Sanctuary First team as they prepare a future event in Perth, and pray also that we will be able to grow the staff base of SF and that the finance will be found for the next phase of our vision.
