NBA Prayers for 26th July - Stocksfield BC (Tyne Valley)

We give thanks for the appointment of our new Minister, Pete Jorysz, who will be joining us in September, after a lengthy but smooth appointments process which saw the church come together in a really united and prayerful way. During this period we were all encouraged as different people stepped up to fill the roles normally undertaken by a minister.


We praise God for the renovation work which has taken place in the church building during this period and we are now enjoying the benefits of a lovely refurbished hall, new boiler and heating system and splendid new toilets!


We pray for Pete and his wife Steph as they move to a new part of the country and pray that they will quickly settle into their new home and God will richly bless them in their new jobs.


We ask prayer for healing for the daughter of our Church Secretary, recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

NBA Prayers for 19th July - Darlington Baptist Tabernacle

Praise God for:

  • The continuing faithfulness of many members as they look to serve the community in which God has placed us.
  • Good numbers of toddlers and carers who attend the weekly Toddler group meeting.
  • Good links with a small number from the neighbourhood through T @ the Tab (a drop in opportunity for fellowship, refreshments, credit union etc.), "Not the Youth Club" (a monthly opportunity for adults to meet and relax, playing games or just chatting) and the Community Choir.
  • God's goodness to Robyn Shepherd and her husband Gareth, as they expect the arrival of their first child in November.
  • Increased links with Grange Road Baptist Church.
  • The support of the NBA, as we are looking to God for the future, through the Springboard initiative.

Pray for:

  • God's blessing on all those who serve in the church at the present time.
  • Wisdom as we look to implement appropriate recommendations resulting from the Springboard report.
  • Opportunities to introduce those on the fringe of the churches' activities to Jesus.
  • Guidance as we consider how the current links with Grange Road might develop.
