NBA Prayers for Berwick Hills BC (Middlesbrough)

On Wednesday 4 October we look forward to a visit from our BMS link missionaries Wit and Helen Boondeekhun, who are currently home from northern Thailand where they work in a church planting ministry.  We are happy to open this meeting to any friends who wish to come along at 7.30 pm with refreshments from 7 pm.  For more information you can get Alan Reed on 01642 314450 or 07961839191. Please pray that the Link visit bears fruit for the Kingdom.


We are thankful for:

the good numbers attending the parent and toddler group on Friday mornings and for the way parents come along to other activities such as the recent church barbecue;

our close ties with local primary schools and the regular opportunities to take assemblies;

the faithful members of the fellowship and their strong relationships and mutual support.


We value prayer:

as we as we work through a period with many members of the fellowship going through difficult times due to health, family and work related issues;

because, like many others, we face challenges in the future with regard to church leadership and finance;

for God's continued provision as we reach out to one of the most deprived areas in one of the most deprived towns.

Minister: Rev Alan Reed

NBA Prayers for Hamsterley Baptist Church

Hamsterley BC needs a higher profile on the Baptists notice boards in other parts of the country! Recently we have not had the visitors we used to get during the summer months or any requests for use of the building for away days, prayer days, etc. We are in a beautiful part of God's creation with Hamsterley Forest Visitor Centre a 6 minute drive away. Please pray for tourist and other visitor support; we need it.


We are without a pastor at present and meet once a month on the Second Sunday for a prayer and share time, with full services only on the Fifth Sunday. This situation would improve if we saw an increase in attendance, so please pray for more to join us on a regular basis as well!

NBA Prayers for 17th September - West View BC (Hartlepool)

The church started a new initiative about six months ago called The Filling Station. This has been our main focus in recent months, particularly while our minister, Tim, has been on sabbatical. Every Friday we serve free meals to people from our local community. Give thanks for what has been achieved and pray that The Filling Station will move forward.  

This has really grown and we are now serving up to 60 people each week. It has provided opportunities to build relationships and has attracted people of all ages and backgrounds. Praise God for the many volunteers helping to run this and for the way we have been able start such a venture.

As relationships grow there are opportunities to pray with people and to talk to people about faith. Pray God will show us how to develop this further and show us ways we can help introduce people to Jesus.

Minister: Rev Tim Hyde
