Stranraer GO Team
25 - 28 August
Does the prospect of seeing God breathe new life into a dying church in a post-Christian culture excite you? If so, apply for Stranraer!
Imagine a town where only 0.5% of people even attend a gospel-preaching church. Imagine being 2 hours from the nearest church in your denomination. Imagine your church not being able to pay a full-time minister for over 30 years. Imagine a church built to hold 700 people (and regularly packed out) reduced down to 20. That's the situation in Stranraer.
Yet in a day when many churches in the town are closing down, God has preserved the church in Stranraer. New converts have brought a fresh excitement to the congregation. The Scottish Presbytery has committed to supporting the work for at least 3 years because it believes that God can make dry bones live.
The Stranraer GO Team will have opportunities to encourage the small group of believers here, to pray that Christ will build his church, and to invite people to come and hear his word preached - because that's the only hope for this town.
