Praying for our newly accredited ministers

By Ivy Young, BUS Ministry Administrator

At our annual gathering, we would usually take the opportunity of welcoming our newly accredited ministers onto the stage to be presented with their certificates.  It is a privilege to pray for those who have worked hard to complete their pre-accreditation studies and continue to prioritise continuing ministry development alongside their faithful service in their varying ministry roles.

During Canopy, we will celebrate and congratulate them in a slightly different format.  A short video from each will introduce them and present a short prayer for their ministry situations, which this year includes chaplaincy, church ministry and our BUS team.  We are delighted that Canopy will give the opportunity for many more of our Baptist family to join in prayer for their situations all over Scotland.

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.
