Summer camps: Give thanks that the camp at Kingscross in which Kathryn was involved in July went really well. The young people had a great time and there were lots of very productive conversations about God and life. Two young people went home with their own bibles for the first time. Please pray that the bibles will be read, understood and have a life-changing impact. Please pray also that the young people will find Christians local to them to help and encourage them.
Holiday clubs: Give thanks that Karen and the team had lots of fun ‘Going Bananas’ with the children at Partick Trinity Church‘s Holiday Club. Numbers were not big, at around 20 each day, but the team was encouraged greatly by the way the children were fully engaged with all aspects of the programme, in particular the bible stories and group time. They also had a great time on the last day with many families attending from both the morning Messy Church format and the afternoon holiday club.
Kathryn was involved in Whiteinch with a holiday club run jointly by Whiteinch C of S and West Glasgow New Church (8-11 August) and with Wellington Church (12-13 August). Please pray for God’s blessing on both the teams and on the young people who attended, as well as the families they represented.
New Term: Please pray for Kathryn and Karen as they plan for the new term. Pray that God would equip them with the vision and stamina to work out His plans for reaching the young people of the West End with the Good News of Jesus.
