'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 December 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.
Love came down at Christmas: Thank God for sending His Son Jesus to live amongst us – He knows the life we live because He lived it with us.
Christmas outreach: Pray for GB groups and churches planning outreach events or special services over the Christmas period. May they reach people with the real meaning of Christmas.
End of term events: GB groups have lots to celebrate at the end of a year and many are planning celebration events or awards nights. Thank God for all that’s been achieved through the groups in 2017.
The Esther Collective: Pray for more young women to sign up to be part of The Esther Collective in Bristol in 2018 and that the group would develop greater integrity, influence and faith in their homes and study/workplaces.
Looking to 2018: Our anniversary year is nearly here and there are lots of plans afoot to mark our 125th year. Pray for God’s blessing on all those working to Build Hope, Give Hope, and Celebrate Hope in 2018. #WeAreGB125.
