Prayer Course.  We are planning to start a new Prayer Course.  This is an 8 week video based course for anyone who would like to learn more about prayer.  Many folk in the church have done this course and really appreciated it.  Please contact Jane if you would like to sign up—we will decide when to hold it depending on the availability of those who want to do the course.  The course has been updated and changed (it used to be 6 weeks) so anyone who has done it before is welcome to do it again!  

Prayer emails.  Every Sunday morning an email gets sent out to all those who have signed up for it with prayer requests for the week.  Occasional emails also get sent mid week with urgent prayer requests. If you would like to receive these emails please write to biggarprayer@gmail.com and ask to be added to the list. If you would like prayer for something please speak to Jane, or write to the same email address or fill in a prayer request form and put in a box in either the Gillespie Centre Church Corner or the church vestibule.  This can be done anonymously.
