A Record-Breaking Gathering

By Martin Hodson, General Director

Size isn’t everything. But sometimes it’s something – to be enjoyed, to be celebrated, to be savoured, to say, ‘I was there.’

We are anticipating the largest ever gathering of people from Scottish Baptist churches on Sunday 25 October. Churches from all parts of the country will be sharing in an online worship service for the concluding session of Canopy. It will be a unique opportunity to connect in worship and prayer, to listen to scripture together and be encouraged by what God is doing in and through this network of churches.

The speaker will be John Mark Comer, from Bridgetown Church in Portland, Orgeon. John Mark is an engaging Bible teacher who pays particular attention to spiritual practices and culture. His recent book, The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry, has been appreciated by many people in and around our churches.

The event will run live at 10.30am for an hour. It looks like most churches are planning to make this their morning worship service that day.  It will be an extraordinary privilege to connect in this way as churches around the country, coming under the canopy of God’s glory together and listening for his voice.

Praying for our Churches in 2021

I have been greatly inspired by our National Prayer Live gatherings over 2020 and we will be continuing this on a monthly basis into 2021. It is so good to unite together in prayer for our churches, our nation and our world.

2021 – Hope

2021 – Hope

Having crossed the threshold of a new year, with or without a lump of coal, what is it that we cherish as our hope for the months that lie ahead?

Carols by Torchlight in Newton Mearns!

Carols by Candlelight would normally be a highlight during Advent for many people within in our community and church family but like many things in 2020 it just was not possible to have such an event within in our building. Rather than being discouraged we felt enlivened to create something new and different that everyone could participate in outside of the building and so Carols by Torchlight began to take shape.

Prayer is at the heart of our Union. The prayer calendar is a framework to help individuals or congregations pray for all our churches throughout the year.  Every Sunday evening several hundred people from our churches across Scotland join in our National Prayer Livestream.
