Weekly Prayer Focus

Each week the Eastern Baptist Association will produce a Weekly Prayer Focus for a different member church across the region. We hope you will be able to use the article and accompanying PowerPoint and PDF to encourage you and your churches in prayers for others in the association.

In the week running up to the annual EBA gathering there is a wave of prayer rolling right across the eastern region. Next Saturday (28 September) the annual gathering entitled “Going together” takes place at Billericay Baptist Church. This week there are at least 26 special prayer meetings, taking place every day across the EBA region in a wave of prayer that is like a wave crashing along the shores of our Association. We are more than just our 174 separate churches. We are beacons of hope in our villages, towns, cities; through our street ministry, our café church, our messy church, our Alpha courses; when we share food and hospitality, when we listen, laugh and cry with one another. In all these things we…

Walton lies on the coast at the far north-east tip of Essex. Walton-on-the-Naze Baptist Church was founded in 1925 and is tucked-away in a residential area in the north of the town. It has been led by Revd Brian Jennings since 1971. In September there is going to be a special service to celebrate 48 years of his ministry at Walton which must be something of a record in itself! Each Sunday about 30 adults and children gather for worship in this friendly fellowship. The kids leave part-way through for their own activities upstairs in COOL Club (Children of our Lord). Pastor Brian has stepped back and now takes a part-time role although on Sundays he contributes something most weeks and still takes the monthly…

Theydon Bois is just within the boundaries of the M25 in Essex, but despite its proximity to London it’s a large residential area that retains a village feel. The Baptist church there is making big strides forward. In its efforts to reach more people, it is trying to develop Bible-based worship that is relevant to all generations, while developing a more missional approach by being committed to several strands of community service that don’t necessarily take place within its own walls. A great example of this is the church’s support of the area’s Alcoholics Anonymous group. Although this is held in the church building, the church does not organise or run the group. It’s a similar story for Community Cuppa in that the church is…

Attleborough is a market town on the A11 between Thetford and Norwich. Located near the town centre, Attleborough Baptist Church offers a warm welcome to its regular congregation and visitors alike. Revd David Bird, and his wife Marion, came to Norfolk about 18 months ago. Last September, they were invited by the fellowship at Attleborough to take up a part-time appointment. David brings with him 40 years of experience in ministry. In addition to preaching and pastoral duties he and Marion have sought to assist the church to review its ministry and mission in a growing town. Although not a large fellowship, in the past year they have sought to better understand their gifts and opportunities, to become more equipped to share their faith, to…
