We had around fifty people at our first Family Service of the year.
The opening service of the year was chaired by Phil Bray (@PhilBray) and began with the singing of ‘Amazing Grace’. This was followed by prayer and our second hymn, ‘What kind of love is this’. The music was supplied by Kerry on piano and accompanied by Judith on guitar.
During the service we learned 2 Corithians 5:17 – If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come. Various people came up to the front to help.
We also sung a few choruses that the childen from Sunday Club normally have on a Sunday morning.
Finally, before Paul Cogger came to speak, we sung the hymn ‘Majesty’.
Paul took us through the story of Jesus changing water into wine based around the headings ‘Marriage‘, ‘Mother‘, ‘Moment‘, ‘Message‘ and ‘Miracle‘. He finished with a clever demonstration by pouring water out of a bottle, which turned red in a glass.
The service finished with the final hymn ‘I stand amazed in the presence’ and prayer.
It was generally agreed the it had been a good opening to the Family Services and we’re looking forward to our Mother’s Day tea on April 3rd at 5pm.
