Teach Me To Pray course @ Session Room

We are instructed as Christians to pray continually but not how to pray.

The way we pray in church is not the way we pray at home, nor how we might pray walking down the road.

There are lots of ways to pray and there are techniques we can use to make prayer easier.

This course will help people explore different ways to pray and give you the tools you need to keep prayer at the heart of your Christian life.

Whether you are a new Christian or a long time believer there will be something here for you.

Boys Brigade @ East Hall, West Hall, Church, Session Room, Kitchen

18:30 – Anchor Boys (P2 to P3)

18:30 – Junior Section (P4 to P6)

20:00 – Company & Senior Section (P7 to age 18)

Each week The Boys’ Brigade works with thousands of young people, many of whom have no other connection with the Church. Today we are working with over 60,000 children & young people in over 1500 companies (groups) in the UK & Republic of Ireland every week.

The Boys’ Brigade provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. These resources have been developed to help volunteer youth leaders work in a relevant and creative way. We hope through these programmes they will be able to make a positive contribution to a young person’s life and be able to share their faith.

Our work is split into age groups as follows:

Where have we come from?

The Boys’ Brigade has been around for over 125 years and in 2008 we celebrated our 125th Anniversary. Our Founder Sir William Alexander Smith, included in our Object “The Promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness” and that has not been changed.

What has changed is how we go about promoting that object. We recognise that the influences surrounding our young people are not always helpful and that too many lose control at great cost to themselves, their families and the community. The answer is to catch the energy and enthusiasm of youth and to channel it purposefully.

Our Object

The Object of The Boys’ Brigade is:

“The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.”

Wednesday Home Group @ home of Barbra Gordon,
Dec 5 @ 19:30 – 20:30
Wednesday Home Group @ home of Barbra Gordon,  | Edinburgh | United Kingdom

What is a Home group?

A Home group is a small group of people from the Church who meet regularly, usually at someone’s home. These groups provide the opportunity to read and discuss the Bible together, to pray together and get to know one another.

Why go to a Home group?
There are 2 main reasons: (1) to study the bible and discuss issues that come from that, a small group environment is very helpful; (2) a small group provides an opportunity to meet and to get to know a more manageable number of people than you might meet at a Sunday service. That means there is a chance to get to know a group of people well, and therefore to be able to support and encourage them, and to be supported and encouraged.

What role do Home groups play within the Church?

In the book of Ephesians the Church is described as a body with a structure, ‘held together by every supporting ligament [which] grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.’ (Ephesians 4:16). We believe that Home groups play an important part in encouraging godliness, and building and developing relationships, within the context of good bible study, that strengthen the Church and help it to function as it ought.

What if I can’t get there every time?
Not everyone can get to a home group every time it meets. However, by going when you can, you will get to know others in the group who will be able to support you and pray for you when you can’t be there.

Which of the groups should I join?
We usually recommend that you try the group nearest to where you live. It may be that you visit other home groups to see where you feel the most comfortable. There are several groups meeting in and around Farnham on Wednesday evenings and one group which meets in Weybourne on a Tuesday evening.

What will be expected of me?
Our aim is to get to know you and to give you time to get to know the rest of your group. Some people are very used to this sort of environment, but it may be new to others. When you feel able to, you can contribute as much or as little as you like.

We have 2 Home Groups at the moment.
One meets on the first and 3rd Wednesday of each month at the home of Barbra Gordon, 2 Granton Place – email ian.moir@granton.org.uk for information

The other meets on the last Thursday of each month at the home of Linda & Derek Young, 110 Silverknowes Road – email linda@granton.org.uk for information

Lunch ClubOpen to all

Our aim is to provide a budget meal – at present £3.00 for 3 courses including tea and coffee) and importantly to create a friendly atmosphere for people to meet and chat on a regular basis.

It is open to everyone and we especially welcome those who live alone, who would appreciate having a meal made for them and companionship. We also manage to make a profit which we gladly hand over to the church to help with ever-increasing costs.

Sunday Service - 3rd Sunday in Advent - God’s Restoration @ Church

 


Everyone is warmly welcome to our Sunday services.

Our worship style could be described as ‘informal contemporary’, with elements of ‘traditional’ thrown in for good measure.

We recognise the importance of getting to know each other and do this both during the ‘welcome’ and after services over tea and coffee.

Prayer after the service

There are times when people need specific prayer for specific situations and do not with to ask in the ‘prayers for others’.

Norman is available for anyone who wishes prayer after the service. Please sit down at the front if you would like this.

INFORMATION FOR VISITORS

Members of the Welcome Team will be pleased to provide details of any of the topics below – they are easily recognised by their name badges.

We provide crèche facilities during the morning service.

Feel free to sit anywhere within the congregation as there are no personalised seats.

Toilets are located in the vestibule at the back of the church and also just through the door on the pulpit side of the church.

We have an induction hearing loop system, so if you need to use it please switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position for best reception.

We can arrange transport home if you need it.
