The Mission board of the Free Church – generation-mission.org – organises a monthly prayer schedule for the congregations across our denomination for each week of each month we are asked to pray for specific congregations and their various needs and thanksgivings. We will try and keep you updated on our website of the congregations to be praying for each week. For week beginning 14th November your congregations to remember before the Lord are:
Tain & Fearn – Ministers: Alasdair Macaulay & Andrew Macleod
Tain and Fearn is situated in the Highlands, 35 miles north of Inverness. Our two ministers; Alasdair and Andrew work together to serve the two ends of our congregation. The last 18 months encouraged us to update our church website, install a recording camera and increase our online presence. We have returned to in-person services while recording the service for our YouTube channel. We have been encouraged for professions of faith through these difficult months.
- New Church for Tain – We have seen many prayers answered regarding our New Church Project; donations have continued steadily and a new project team has been created. Please pray that physical work will begin and that construction costs will settle.
- Please pray for more children to attend the Tain end of the congregation, specifically. We are also running Christianity explored this month, pray fruit from this course.
Mull & Coll – Minister: Vacant Interim Moderator: Iain MacAskill
The congregation of Mull and Coll is a small group based mainly in Tobermory, Mull. The church is in a good location on the main street. There are no longer any separate Free Church services on Coll and Free Church folk have helped with supply for the local Church of Scotland congregation.
- Pray for the ongoing connections with the Oban congregation on the mainland, that these would be built upon and be an encouragement to Oban and the surrounding isles.
- Pray that the group on Mull would maintain their presence and Christian witness on the island
Here are all the congregations we will be focusing on for prayer across the month of November
