4th Scarborough Boys’ Brigade Appeal for Staff

Are you feeling God calling you to serve?

Are you good with children?

Can you spare a couple of hours a week on Monday evenings during school term time?

If the answer to these questions is YES we would love to hear from you. 4th Scarborough BB is based at Burniston Church. We are a small company with very enthusiastic boys who attend regularly – most from non-church families.

Our priority is having fun, learning new skills for life and sharing our faith at every opportunity.

We are desperately short of staff to help in each of our sections (from age 5 to 18 years). We would welcome basic helpers (no planning or leadership required) through to anyone willing to take on leadership responsibilities for which training can be provided.

Contact Georgette at 4thScarboroBB@gmail.com or telephone 07979506496 for an initial conversation.

World Day of Prayer 2022 Friday March 4th St James Church 10.30am

This amazing international festival of prayer starts as the sun rises over Samoa and sweeps across the world visiting New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, North and SouthAmerica, and concluding in American Samoa!  With this year’s focus on England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

2022 is a special year for World Day of Prayer service.  It has been both challenging and rewarding to write about the three countries that make up our area: our landscape, people and culture all shaped by our history.  We celebrate our diversity and the contribution made to our countries by the many groups and individuals who have made their home here.  We use our Bible text “I know the plans I have for you” from Jeremiah to reflect on some of the issues facing us today: poverty, fear (including domestic abuse) and isolation. For further information and resources, and for other local World Day of Prayer services, please visit: wwdp.org.uk

A World Day of Prayer service of worship, including interactive prayer stations and singing, will take place at the Church of Saint James with Holy Trinity, Seamer Road, Scarborough, on Friday, 4th March at 10.30 a.m.  All are welcome to come along as we pray together for peace and hope for people living in poverty, fear and isolation.  The service will be followed by refreshments and a chance to meet and chat together.  See poster attached. For those worried about Covid, people will be asked to use hand sanitiser, wear masks when movingabout, but not when seated or when singing, as there will be one metre plus spacing between groups.

District Prayer Gathering

District prayer gathering online starting on 6th January, at 6.30pm!

A few weeks ago District Chair, Leslie Newton, suggested we begin a regular online District prayer gathering. It was encouraging to receive much positive feedback. So, from Thursday 6th January, we’ll be hosting a weekly online time of prayer – focussing on seeking God’s renewal for our lives, church and world. We’ll begin at 6.30pm for about 45 minutes.
