Call to Prayer
Crisis in Iraq
Please pray for all the people in Iraq subject to the terrorism and evil acts perpetrated by those allegedly adhering to Islam. In particular, the Christian families being targeted and threatened with barbaric execution unless they renounce their faith. Many have died. Missionaries and aid-workers are continuing without any government protection.

Songs of Praise Event
"Friends in Faith
There was a special Songs of Praise Service in Glenrothes on Saturday 6th September in St Columba’s Church, Glenrothes. “Special” since the Glenrothes churches welcomed the Böblingen Ecumenical Group. The Service was also open to the public in the Glenrothes area. Two candles were lit in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the start of World War 1. The Service was led by the St Columba’s minister, Rev. Alan Kimmitt, and by Rev. Friederike Strauss from Böblingen. Hymns were selected by members of the Böblingen group and by members of the various Glenrothes area churches, with introductions before each one. The themes of these hymns and prayers were Friendship, Partnership, Togetherness and Faith. Excellent music was being provided by the Salvation Army Band before and during the Service. The band played for some of the hymns, as did Mr Eric Christie, the organist of St Columba’s.
A delightful buffet was provided so that the German visitors were able to mingle with the Glenrothes area people.
GROW Worker
After a long period of recruitment the GROW Trustees and Management Group are delighted to report that they have successfully filled the position left by Gwyneth Duff last year.

The new worker, Beatrice Bradbrook, comes from a youth apprentice position at Central Hall Baptist Church in Edinburgh.

Developments

HOPE - Houses of Prayer Everywhere

Leaflets have been made available at the last few meetings outlining the vision and background to HOPE - Houses of Prayer Everywhere. Lighthouses of Prayer have been starting up independantly in various places throughout the land. Here are some more instances of the pieces coming together.
April 2007 - Lance Canter was praying for the coming of the Pray for Scotland (PfS) team to West Kilbride during the Connecting Scotland 50 days of prayer. The Lord led him to Ezek 12:21-28. When the team came through he shared the passage with Jean Black of PfS. A few months later he discovered that God led Jean to share a message based on this word as she travelled and spoke throughout the nation. The gist of her message was to ask what things the Lord has spoken to us in the past that we have 'put on the shelf' and forgotten.
Sept 2007 - Ola Nordstrom and Lance were speaking about houses of prayer in Scotland. Ola said "I don't think we will have 24/7 houses of prayer in Scotland. Instead, God has given me a picture of HOPE - Houses of Prayer Everywhere".
Nov 2007 - Sylvia Norton emailed Lance from S Uist describing how God hasd given her a vision of HOPE - Houses of Prayer Everywhere. The exact same picture and acronym that God had given to Ola. She was reminded of this during a weekend conference with PfS team when they asked if God had given them any words that they had 'put on the shelf' and forgotten. Like Ola, God had given her this vision in 2000 and He was now bringing it back for both of them! Around this time Ola began travelling to every village and town in Ayrshire and driving wooden stakes in the ground reclaiming these areas for God's Kingdom. At one point he visited an orphanage in Uganda where he was given 6 stakes to bring back to Scotland. One of these stakes he was led to hold on to.
April 2008 - Jean Black was speaking at a YWAM Scotland staff day sharing the PfS vision of establishing HOPE, Houses of Prayer Everywhere in Scotland. Ola and Lance were at this meeting, and Ola felt the Lord telling him to give Jean the last stake.
July 2008 – Still carrying the stake, Jean found herself at CLAN Gathering when Brent Borthwick (from USA) gave an amazing prophetic word concerning revival in Scotland, remarkably similar to a vision Jean Darnell had in the 1970’s (read Ezek 12:21-28). (Brent knew nothing about Jean Darnell or her prophecy.) He ended by saying that he felt they should drive a stake in the ground as a prophetic symbol of embracing this word. Jean had the stake taken to Brent and shared where it came from. Just after the stake was driven in the ground, he commented that he was supposed to have been at an orphanage in Uganda that week, but God told him to cancel the trip and go to Scotland to share this word.



Presentations

Gilven Project

At the November 12th meeting, Gilven Project Manager Trish O’Brien, introduced us to ‘Passing the Baton’ a joint venture with Bethany Christian Trust to assist local young people to overcome isolation when taking up new accommodation after homelessness. There are opportunities to serve on the steering group and as ‘buddies’ and in other ways in this innovative project. Prayer, financial and other support is also welcome.

Scottish Bible Society

Scottish Bible Society made a presentation to Glenrothes Area Churches Together in November 2007.
There are two great resources: Bibleworld Studio in Edinburgh and Bibleworld Mobile now in its 4th edition.
SBS mission is to get God's word in a format people can receive.
BW logo

Ideally, Churches work together to bring Bibleworld to young people in their area.
The maximum capacity is 13 classes in one week 2 on Mon, 3 on Tue/Wed/Thu, 2 on Fri.
The modules are suitable for P6-S1 classes of up to 36 children. Sessions are 70 mins long per class.
The studio is normally open to adults or other groups (e.g. uniformed organisations) in the evenings. Open evenings are for short presentations and info on other SBS projects.
Each community is expected to contribute £1,000 towards costs.
Teachers are encouraged when Churches support them, and it is also good to involve local youth workers.
The relationships built help to promote the Gospel, help towards the work in schools and break down barriers between community and Church.
Teachers get a follow-up pack resource.
SBS can provide press release for Church magazines and local publications.
The mobile first visited Glenrothes between the 9th - 13th June 2008.
A second visit was made from 9-20 May 2011
Open Evenings were Thurs 12th May & Wed 18th May from 7pm - 8:30pm.

GROW visit to Auchmuty

January 2012
A new venture for GROW in January 2012 was a ‘Personal Search Week’ for first year's [S1] in Auchmuty High School from 16th - 20th January. This was a really exciting opportunity for the local church, in partnership with GROW and SU Scotland, to make an impact on some of the young people of our town.
Powerpoint presentations and leaflets giving details of this week were sent out to the Churches. There was local involvement from Gwyneth and John McLean the school chaplain, and other local Christians, plus a highly talented and creative Christian drama and music team ‘Viz-a Viz’ who have a lot of experience working in schools, and other experts from around Scotland. This was a big project and was only possible with the support of local Christians.
There was an opportunity to pray each day from Monday 16th to Friday 20th at 10am in Glenrothes Baptist Church. Follow up meetings and events were also arranged.

Ezekiel 12:21-28 (New International Version)

21 The word of the LORD came to me: 22 "Son of man, what is this proverb you have in the land of Israel: 'The days go by and every vision comes to nothing'? 23 Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.' Say to them, 'The days are near when every vision will be fulfilled. 24 For there will be no more false visions or flattering divinations among the people of Israel. 25 But I the LORD will speak what I will, and it shall be fulfilled without delay. For in your days, you rebellious house, I will fulfill whatever I say, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "
26 The word of the LORD came to me: 27 "Son of man, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision he sees is for many years from now, and he prophesies about the distant future.'
28 "Therefore say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: None of my words will be delayed any longer; whatever I say will be fulfilled, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "

Church Members Consultation

Following a number of sessions of workshops, discussions and reviews, a Response Form has been drawn up to enable Church members to express their views on Churches Together activities. It is intended that on a Sunday in June, someone in your Church will say a bit about Churches Together and a form will be issued to each member. It would be appreciated if you would complete the form and return it promptly as we aim to get the views of as many members as possible. Thanks in advance for your participation. If you have any questions, please contact your own Church representative(s). Their names can be found in the minutes of the meetings.

Carol Singing in Kingdom Centre 2009

Many thanks to everyone who made it to Lyon Square for the Churches Together Carols Singing. Sorry if you made the effort to get to Rothes Halls and couldn't find us. This was due to a change made by the centre management, which we were not informed about. There was some inconvenience, but we need to be thankful that as united Christians we were able to lift up praise to God and declare His Good News to the people in the Kingdom Centre. The security staff were helpful and offered us assistance and they were able to provide some seating at the new location. We received some very encouraging comments regarding the quality of the singing and the variety of musical content. Please continue to support this event so that we can have an ongoing Christian witness in the town. Thanks again to everyone who contributed and assisted an any way. Have a blessed and peace-filled Christmas.
