'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 March 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.
GB volunteers: Pray that GB volunteers know they’re safe in the potter’s hands and that His constant shaping and reshaping of their lives and situations they face will draw them closer to Him.
GB’s n:vestigate and n:gage members: Give thanks that GB groups are a safe space for these age groups to have fun, make new friends, and learn new skills.
GB’s n:counta and n:spire members: Sometimes life can be overwhelming when you’re a young woman trying to find out who you are and where you fit in. Pray that these age groups have hope in God’s plan for their lives and where journeying with Him will take them.
You: There is always the potential for the potter, God, to create something beautiful even when situations seem hopeless. Pray for strength to believe this when times are tough for you and your loved ones.
Spring conference: GB’s spring conference takes place on Saturday 4 March and will look at the important issue of mental health. Pray for all those who will share and watch the new koko video being launched at the event. May it have the potential to bring a sense of hope and encouragement to those facing challenges with their mental health.
#WeAreGB125: As the regional tour continues to move around the country, visiting Regions 1 and 9 this month, pray those participating will be encouraged to see the part that they and their groups can play in raising hope in 2018, GB’s 125th year.
Annual census: It’s the time of year when the annual census emails go out. Pray for patience for GB leaders with such ‘paperwork’ and that it’s an encouraging time as they reflect on all that has happened in the past year.
