'By supporting Girls' Brigade, prayerfully and financially, you’ll provide the support needed to ensure that our mission is fulfilled to raise the volume of hope among this generation of girls!' says Ruth Gilson, Director.
From September 2015 Girls' Brigade England & Wales is launching a whole new approach to our ASSOCIATE and RETIRED MEMBERS SCHEME (ARMS) and we’d love you to be a part of it!
By becoming members of the scheme you’ll be the ARMS around GB’s mission today, supporting leaders, praying for girls and helping us to continue moving forward in our important mission.
In order to make sure that as a member of GB’s ARMS group you are up-to-date with GB news, and able to pray for and talk about our activities well, you’ll receive from Girls' Brigade:
Annual membership of the brand new GB ARMS group is via donation and we recommend this to be £50 per person per year. You can subscribe at any point in the year as we’re operating a rolling membership. You can become a member of our new ARMS group by downloading the form below, filling it in online, printing and then signing it before posting it back to us.
Prayer is the backdrop of GB and we'd love you to pray, as an individual or in a group, for the GB family.
Why not download the prayer flyer for April 2017 below or read on for some prayer points?
Below you’ll find 7 prayer points – 1 for each day of the week – so you can pray for each point around 4 times over the course of an average month.
The cross: As it’s the month of Easter, why not take some time to personally thank God for His death on the cross, and the love that He showed you then and continues to show you. You might want to read one of the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ death and resurrection to help you pray.
Easter Services: GB groups and churches across the country are preparing to celebrate Jesus’ death and resurrection at their Easter services this month. Pray for all plans to go well, for a clear sense of God’s guidance, and for all those who will step into a church – some perhaps for the first time – that they would hear about and respond to God’s love for them.
#WeAreGB125: Pray for all of the plans being made to celebrate GB’s 125th year in 2018. Pray in particular for Region 3, where the #WeAreGB125 regional tour will visit on Saturday 29 April. Pray for a real stirring and enthusiasm for all who attend as they’re inspired to think about ways they might give, build and celebrate hope next year.
Annual census: Thank God for the great work that happens through GB week in and week out. Pray for all those completing the annual census for their group. May they take this opportunity to see and celebrate how many lives are being transformed and enriched through their dedication and service.
Volunteers: Pray for every volunteer leader across GBEW. Pray for those that you know by name, for those in your district, and those further afield. Pray that they’d be blessed and see the fruits of their hard work. Pray, too, that they’d have an opportunity to relax over the Easter break.
Team time: After the launch of the 2017 Team Challenge last month, many groups will be taking part in this national competition right where they are – without the need to travel. Pray for all the children and young people taking part – that they’d have a lot of fun!
GB International: Pray for your GB sisters and family across the globe. Pray in particular for the Pacific Fellowship who have their AGM and conference from 1 to 5 April in Katoomba, Australia. Pray for relationships to be deepened and faith to be strengthened.
