The Lord has called Ellel Ministries to use buildings that are both practical and beautiful, to provide the right environment where people can confidentially and safely receive help and also training. Our centres are expensive to maintain and develop, so we must share some practical funding needs that facilitate our vision. Thank you for your support!
Donations to our general funds are of most flexible value as we continue to offer personal ministry without charge and subsidised training. However, you can also support more specific needs at the centre in the following ways:
Please select which category of project you would like your donation to be used for. If you would like your gift to go to something specific please indicate this on the notes section of the payment page.
Including Ellel Scotland in your will is easier than you might think, and it can have a significant impact on the future and fruitfulness of the ministry.Legacy Giving
Like any household, emergencies and unexpected breakages and bills happen. Which is why we are so grateful if you are able to help us deal with some of these immediate needs of our work. There is almost always an urgent need, whether it’s a broken down dishwasher or an expensive but leaking roof repair.
We urgently need to replace the flat roof over two of our lovely premium bedrooms and reception area. Many of the sky lights are perished and are barely watertight. However, the original felt covering have now come to the end of its useful life and are letting water in at various places causing damage to ceilings and carpets. It requires replacing by professional roofers to access the area scaffolding need to be erected and so we urgently need your support.
Due to the height and inaccessibility of many of the gutters and sloped roof areas we require roofers and scaffolding to clear gutters and down pipes and repair slates and cement work all around the main house roof. This preventative work is required to prevent leaks and keep the building in good order.
As we are still desperately seeking a handyman / maintenance manager many of the smaller more regular maintenance task have gone unattended to, a local Christian joiner have offered his services at a good rate and so we would like to encage him for two weeks to fix and repair various small tasks. Such as minor bits of decorating, replacing light fitting, repairing door frames, replacing window glass and rodent proofing some areas etc…
Maintenance of our properties is a huge challenge, especially when the buildings have a historic listed status. We are increasingly mindful of how the passage of time brings wear and tear to the interior and exterior of our buildings. Rain is a perpetual erosion agent and window frames, guttering, roofs and exposed walls are constantly in need of vital, yet often hugely expensive repairs. Your gift means we can keep our buildings healthy, safe and fit for purpose.
We are required to upgrade our fire alarm system to comply with the new and ever-changing fire regulations. The current system we have is outdated and no longer supported and as such maintenance or unit replacement is no longer an option. We would like to implement a phased changeover to a new and improved system that is scalable and would see us into the foreseeable future. Phase one would be approximate £30,000 but could increase to considerably more.
God never stands still in His vision for His church and His people, and He often calls us into places of faith for things that glorify His name. The work of Ellel never stands still and we find ourselves constantly challenged with what the Lord seeks to do, as He grows His Kingdom influence where it’s allowed to flourish. We therefore would like to share with you these other major projects that we believe the Lord has asked us to accomplish, yet are financially unviable for us without major donation support. Would you stand with us, whether in prayer or finance, to help us accomplish what we believe will reap great spiritual fruit in the lives of many.
We desperately require additional accommodation at Blairmore. Due to the worldwide pandemic and concerns over COVID, there is an increasing demand for single room accommodation which we don’t have. We also currently have several staff members who are living in guest accommodation and as such reducing our maximum capacity.
Please pray with us as we work with developers to design a new long-term solution . More details will be posted here as we progress though these initial stages.
We are deeply grateful for donations large and small, yet we know who our ultimate provider is: our Lord Jesus Christ, Jehovah Jireh. For those of you with a heart to pray for the lost, broken and needy in this world, who have a passion for the lost sheep and desires the Church be united through wholeness and healing – then we covet your prayers for our ministry into the church and the world. Your prayers, supplications and intercessions undergird everything we do. This page displays all our practical prayer needs, where prayer for finances is needed to cover all our ongoing costs to maintain the ministry God has called us to. Yet, our need and purpose for prayer goes much further than just our practical and financial need. If you would like to be deeper involved in the prayer life of Ellel Scotland, please visit our “Pray” page, which gives dates for our regular prayer support meetings.
Ellel Scotland is run from Blairmore House, which is nestled away in the spectacular north-east Highlands of Scotland, located near Huntly, Aberdeenshire. It’s a cradle of warmth and welcome, ideal for retreats and opportunities to leave the world behind and receive from God. To discover more about the ministry of Ellel Scotland follow the link below.
