We had an excellent time, with around 40 people at our April Family Service which was chaired by Jon Cox, with Alan Michael speaking.
Jon was beset with various problems at the beginning of the service, including broken guitar strings and faulty batteries on his amplifier, but battled through heroically, with his customary good humour.
It was great to see old friends back again, as well as those who normally join us at our Family Service.
Jon took the opportunity to choose some choruses which we haven’t sung recently and accompanied Kerry’s piano playing with his guitar.
Beginning with Jesus is the name we honour, we also sang We want to see Jesus lifted high, Jesus put this song into our hearts and When I feel the touch, as well as a selection of children’s favourites.
Jon had arranged a Bible-based light-hearted quiz, which again proved entertaining and ended in a draw.
Alan came up to speak and followed on from the developing theme of ‘People Jesus met’ by talking through the conversion of Saul, found in Acts 9, particularly referring to Saul’s Challenge, Conversion and Change.
After the service, the majority of people were able to stay for refreshments, again arranged by Lesley.
Our next Family Service is on 19th May at 11.45am.
