  • Pray for our work in Churches Together, that we may have an effective witness in the community.

NBA Prayers for 21st July - Stocksfied Baptist Church (Tyne valley)

Give thanks for recent baptisms of new believers, especially for two Iranian young men on Easter Sunday.
Thank God for many signs of the life of the Holy Spirit amongst us: a new format for all-age worship which has been well received (by most!), a new inter-generational house group, a Chris Duffett-style 'Big Hearted' evangelism outreach, new members and new faces in the congregation on Sundays.

We are hosting and running a children's holiday club this week, from 22nd – 26th July, in partnership with other local churches. May God work powerfully through the programme and through it bring people to faith or into closer contact with him.
We are raising funds to undertake work on the church building, renovating toilets and providing better disabled access. Pray for generous giving and for the improved facilities to stimulate more mission opportunities.
We still face a great challenge to become more missional and to disciple one another well. Pray for the church, that we will embrace these challenges wholeheartedly.

Minister: Rev Paul Revill

  • For the Lord's guiding and calling as we have been searching for a new Senior Pastor, and for the recent decision of the church to call someone to the post.
  • A steady stream of baptisms of people of all ages and backgrounds; and of new Partners (members) joining the church.
  • The continued work of the Jubilee Debt Advice Centre. We give thanks for Susan Robinson, who has ably managed our Debt Advice Centre for 10 years and is now standing down; and we're grateful to God for calling Betty Mattison to take over the role later in the summer.
Pray for:
  • The Lord's continuing guidance and leading with regard to both the new Senior Pastor appointment; and also in the recruitment of a new Youth Leader.
  • Northallerton Town Carnival today (14th July): Churches Together have been invited by the town council again to lead an act of worship to open the carnival. Praise God for the opportunity to proclaim the Lord's name on our High Street; and pray for good weather, and that all runs smoothly!
  • A family fun day taking place on Sunday 21st July, and our Summer Holiday Club, Space Academy, running from 19 -23 August. Pray for good weather and for many to come and be touched by the Lord's love.
  • Our New Life for Romania appeal, which will have been running for 20 years this autumn. Pray for guidance with regard to our future direction and for on-going support for the team.

    Assistant Pastors: Steve Cowie and Elisabeth Jordan
