'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 Jules murdy, 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 September 2018 below or read on for the 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.
Back to GB: Pray for all the GB groups starting to meet again after the summer break. May the leaders be refreshed and the children and young people energised for the term ahead.
God’s love: Give thanks that nothing can get between us and God’s love. What an amazing truth to hold onto!
GBM Trustee Board: The GB Ministries’ Trustee Board is meeting on 28 September in London. Please pray for the group - specifically for wisdom and vision in their decision-making.
Silly season: It can be a hectic whirl between September and Christmas… pray for all those already feeling overwhelmed by their diaries and commitments.
Bridging the Gap: GB and BB groups in the Guildford area are hosting an event on 8 September to share with churches how GB and BB can work for them. Pray that the event is a success and new groups start as a result.
GB staff team: Pray for the team and their workloads this month. May they be encouraged by all they do for GB.
Refresh: GB’s Refresh training day takes place at Cliff College on 15 September. Pray that all those attending feel well equipped and that those delivering the training enjoy the experience.
On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
Leaders from 1st Yorkshire GB District recently enjoyed a retreat day in Bakewell, led by GBM’s Discipleship Co-ordinator Charlotte Hendy.
