This Spring, Tillicoultry Baptist Church is running the Alpha Course.
Alpha is a series of interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith. No pressure. No follow up. No charge.
The Alpha launch night is a great opportunity to get a feel for the Alpha course. It’s a relaxed evening with refreshments, a video and some chat to let you know what the course is all about, and there is no obligation to commit to the course.
The launch is at: Tillicoultry Baptist Church Annexe
Murray Square, Tillicoultry
7.30 pm on Thursday 22nd February
Please come along, you’d be very welcome.
(For catering purposes, if you’re coming could you please let Jacqueline know at email@example.com, 01259 752075 – thank you.)

As people connect with God through prayer in different ways we hope to provide a range of opportunities and resources with something that will suit you.
catching the wave: prayer guide
TRY PRAYING have produced a resource to guide prayer over 40 Days starting on 9th February. This provides a daily Bible passage, a story and suggestions for prayer. It can be downloaded as a PDF at:
Paper copies will also be available at church. We hope that this will be a helpful resource to help inspire prayer.
As well as a Bible passage and a story to reflect on, the “catching the wave” prayer guide encourages us to pray for 3 things each day:
- YOUR BIG ISSUE
If there is one thing that you want God to do during these 40 Days, what is it?
- YOUR THREE FRIENDS
During these 40 Days you are encouraged to pray for people to become Christians.
- A NEW WAVE OF REVIVAL
Every day we are invited to pray for revival in this area.
More details of these 3 prayer focusses can be found in the extract of the “catching the wave” booklet.
To provide the opportunity for people to pray personally, the church building will be open during the 40 days. Ideas and resources will be available to help you pray.
Tuesday 10:00am- 1:00pm

COMMIT to something TRY something new
With the range of things going on, we hope that you have found something that will suit you and help you to pray. There may be other things that are new to you.
Chose one, or a number of things that you like and commit to doing those things during this 40 days.
Also, why not choose something that you haven’t tried before or is a bit different and try it out, it could be really good for you.
We pray that through this month we will know God at work and celebrate that together.
