NBA Prayers for 1st December - Heaton BC (Newcastle)

Thank God for our continued and growing links with people in the Community.

Please pray:

that our Christmas activities will be an opportunity to strengthen those links further into our community

for our leadership, staff team and volunteers in the busy festive period.

for those, from many European, Asian and other countries who are part of our English Classes and International Lifegroups that, through them, they may grow in both their understanding of our country and of what lies at the heart of our faith.

Senior Pastor: Rev Mark Elder

NBA Prayers for 24th November - Oxford Road BC (Hartlepool)

We give thanks for our pastor Richard Hetherington and the church leadership team as they continue to love, care for and oversee the fellowship and pray for them as they seek God's direction for the future.

Pray for the ongoing work of The ORB centre, our community centre, which offers a variety of services to local people during the week helping them to deal with practical aspects of their lives.

Pray for our Christmas programme of events and special services this December that these might present opportunities for us to reach out and share the good news with those who do not usually enter a church any other time of the year.

Pastor: Rev Richard Hetherington

NBA Prayers for 17th November - Crosby Garrett United Chapel

We are still finding it quite hard, with only four members attending each week. We give praise for their faithfulness and pray for our eldest member who does not get out to worship in the winter, as she finds it too difficult then.

We were greatly encouraged during the summer when our student was home for the summer from Oxford Brookes University. He gives us great encouragement when he tells us what he does at the Christian Union connected to Uni and also how he has grown in faith at the church he attends in Oxford. He is in his final year doing a Masters Degree. Pray with us that he can get a job and carry on being a witness for Jesus.

Ministers: Rev Keith Hopper and Mr Donald Marston
