'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 October 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.
Halloween – Halloween is also known as All Hallows Eve, or All Saints Eve. It comes just before All Saints Day, which is a Christian celebration of life – remembering the holy people (hallows) who have brought light into the world. Pray for those throwing a light party, giving out tracts to trick or treaters, and helping people to focus on the light – and not the darkness – this All Hallows Eve.
GB Europe – Pray for good discussions and relationships at the upcoming Girls’ Brigade Europe Executive Team meeting. The meeting will take place in Glasgow from 6-8 October.
International Day of the Girl – 11 October is the United Nation’s International Day of the Girl. Pray for girls across the world, and for ongoing progress to improve the lives of the 1.1 billion girls in the world today.
Meetings – Trustees from GB Ministries and the GB England & Wales Network Executive Committee will meet this month (on 16 and 21 October) to shape the strategy and vision of our movement. Thank God for the volunteers who set aside time to contribute to GB in this way, and for productive conversations during their time together.
New members – Pray for all of the girls, boys, young people and leaders who are new to GB this autumn term. Pray that they’d settle into their group, and that they’d learn about Jesus and discover life to the full!
The Esther Collective Bristol – We’ve just launched details of our new Esther Collective initiative, coming to Bristol from February-June 2018. Pray for local women aged 18-30s to hear about this great opportunity to have fun and discover more about themselves and God alongside peers.
#WeAreGB125 – As GB’s 125th year approaches, pray for all those putting together plans for events, celebrations and social action projects in 2018. Pray that we’d raise hope in lives and local communities across the country.
