'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 August 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.
Summer activities: With residential events, DofE expeditions, and community fun days happening across the summer, pray for safety for all involved, memorable moments and new friendships.
GB International: In August a GB team will be going to Ghana for The Gathering. Pray for protection, opportunity and a sense of God’s calling for those participating, as they explore their God-given gifts. Pray too for the International President’s Committee (IPC) happening at the end of the month.
#WeAreGB125: Pray for GB’s #WeAreGB125 Champions, regional and district team leaders, volunteers and members, may they, along with the wider church family, be encouraged as they prepare for 2018 and know how important they are to raising hope.
Planning: With planning for next year’s GB taking place over the summer, pray for God’s guidance as people/groups explore and shape plans for the #WeAreGB125 Give Hope, Build Hope and Celebrate Hope Challenges.
ARMS Tea Parties: Pray for those participating in the ARMS Tea Parties, that they will value the chance to connect with friends, share memories and contribute to the ongoing mission of GB.
Volunteers: Give thanks to God for all the amazing people who serve Him as volunteers in GB. May they be encouraged in the work they do, have the rest they need and be surrounded by supporters, ‘cheering’ them on.
GB staff team: Pray for Jules Murdy as she joins the team as GB Ministries’ Director, and for Ruth Gilson as she steps down to prepare for ministry in the Methodist Church. May they both know God’s presence with them during this time of transition.
