September Connect is OUT!

Connect returns with a look back over the what God was up to in our Step Out summer youth teams. Many went the length and breadth of Scotland, leading holiday clubs in in our Baptist family. Then there's an exciting story about the youth work being done throughout the year at Lossiemouth. Plus Norman Graham shares with us how fruitfulness in Denny has come about via deeper relationships. All that and not to forgetting the important monthly Prayer Link pullout.

There's a Moose Loose Aboot This Hoose

There's a Moose Loose Aboot This Hoose!

Our Step Out youth programme came to its tail-end on Friday at Inverkeithing and Cornton Baptist Churches.

But by no means did they let their enthusiasm be more than a tiny squeak.

The hundreds of children who attended the Kitchen Tails themed holiday club made enough noise to scare the mice away.

Yvonne Faddes, who's been coordinating the teams this summer, said:  "Please keep praying for each of the churches who hosted teams this year as they continue the work that the teams have been involved with.

"Pray for our amazing young people too as they go back to school, college, work or whatever stage they're at. It's not just about stepping out for Jesus for a week in summer but living lives that are lived for him 24/7 wherever we are.

"As they go back excited and feeling the buzz of the summer pray that they would know that every day as they live it making footprints with Jesus."

Here are a few photos that were the key pieces of cheese from the week:

Don't worry, Cornton Baptist does not have a rodent problem. Murray Mouse reads the bible to the kids

Don't panic! There's isn't a rodent problem. Murray Mouse is a reading a story to the kids.

Inverkeithing Baptist Church cooked up this great collage of fruit and veg and other yummy cooking ingredients.

If you're church was that had a Step Out team visit us, then let us know about your experiences. Email comms@scottishbaptist.org.uk.

Perhaps you're someone aged between 14 and 21 and have been inspired by what God as done, and want to be a part of it.

Homelessness Sunday

Homeless Sunday is coming up – 24 January 2016.  It is an opportunity for church congregations to listen to what God has to say about homelessness and consider what action we can take. 

This is summed up in the 2016 theme of connect, challenge and commit

Homelessness has an impact across the country and affects people of all ages – from the ex-serviceman who can’t adjust to civvy life to the kids in families wrecked by domestic violence. 

We encourage churches to hear these stories – and do more, through reflection and action to challenge homelessness.

It has the support of all the main denominations and is celebrated in a wide range of congregations: make yours one of them!

Find out more at www.homeless-sunday.uk, and ‘like’ our Facebook page.  Worship materials and other resources will be available free online from October 2015.

Photos from first week of holiday clubs!

The 2015 Step Out teams kicked off their summer programme last Monday (13th July), with holiday clubs  in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, Dumfries, Dumfrieshire, and Brechin in Angus

The Coatbridge Baptist holiday club enjoyed all sorts of fun including arts and crafts, games and singing.

As the Brechin had the theme, Kitchen Tails, there were plenty of squeaks being made about the club's mascot, Murray the mouse.

The clubs continue this week; with Knightswood Baptist in Glasgow's West End playing host to a Step Out team, as - so stay tuned for more updates during the summer.
