Trinity Church Scarborough
From our initial planning meeting in Filey, over a year ago, to our Celebration weekend service in September we have seen God’s hand at work.
"I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow." (1 Corinthians 3:6)
In this November prayer update we are praising God for the varieties of ways he has been bringing growth through the ministry of Trinity Church Scarborough.
- Praise God for the growth in contacts he has given us with unbelievers who are beginning to think about the faith. Pray that God would bring growth to the seeds sown and pray that we would have the increasing desire to meet up with these people in order to persuade them to repent and trust in Jesus.
- Praise God for the growth to our church family as we average 50 adults and 20 children on Sundays and we now have 40 adults meeting in 4 Growth Groups with still others wanting to join groups and the potential of new ones starting. The Women’s Bible study also continues to meet on Tuesday mornings. Pray these groups would be places of spiritual growth, deep love and renewed desire for evangelism.
- Praise God for the growth in outreach ministries especially the new (2 weeks old) Playsongs group for young children and their parents/guardians. Give thanks for the great start and new friendships formed. Pray this group would be a platform to invite and encourage adults to explore the faith further. Pray for Nicola (Ministry trainee) as she leads this group.
- Finally please pray ahead to our Christmas events that are already being planned. Pray for many people to come to the ladies craft evening, the Christmas Fun Day and our Christmas Carol service. Pray that the result would be a number of people wanting to hear more about the God who made them and the God who sent his son to save them!
Thanks for your partnership in the gospel,
Your brothers and sisters at Trinity Church Scarborough
