'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 September 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: Give thanks for all the summer activities, such as residential events, DofE expeditions, and community fun days that took place over the summer. Pray that many happy memories were made and that GB members’ faith was developed as a result.
Refresh: Saturday 16 September is GB’s national Refresh training day, taking place in Didcot, Oxfordshire. Pray that all who attend feel equipped and inspired by what they hear and learn.
Back to school: September is transition time for GB members as they move school years or into new schools. Remember in prayer those who are nervous and unsettled at this time; may they know God’s peace.
The storms of life: Sometimes life feels overwhelming and it’s hard to trust that God has everything under control. Pray that we, like the disciples in this month’s Bible reading, are reminded of the awesomeness of God and His power to calm the wind and waves in our lives.
New GB year: GB groups start meeting again this month after the summer holidays. Pray for inspiration and encouragement for all the GB volunteer leaders who give their time week in and week out to serve the children and local people who attend.
#WeAreGB125: Our anniversary year is fast approaching and groups are busying planning how to mark our special birthday. Pray for God’s blessing on all those working to Build Hope, Give Hope, and Celebrate Hope in 2018.
GB trustees: Thank God for all who serve GB in this manner ahead of next month’s Board meetings.
