This Week’s Bulletin

 


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 can arrange transport home if you need it.

Want to know more? Should you wish more information on who we are and how we live out our calling to be the church in Granton, speak to any of our welcome team or visit our website, where you can also sign up to receive our weekly eBulletin.

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,
Sep 4 @ 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

Sep 12 @ 18:00 – 19:00

Life never goes in a straight line with ups and downs being part of everyday experience.

When you add faith into that mix it means life is complicated; there are days when believing comes easier than others. How in the midst of all this do you keep your relationship with God alive?

The answer is prayer. With prayer your faith is being nurtured, without prayer starved. We have in our church prayer triplets where 3-4 people gather to pray together.

Alongside that we are starting a monthly meeting open to anyone and everyone to pray. This will be a low key hour where most of it is spent sitting quietly, speaking to God.

On the second Thursday of the month from 6-7pm in the church there is a chance to gather with others to pray.

Put it in your diary and hope to see you there!

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.”
