This week our usual Friday Club was replaced with a family service with lots of singing pieces from our children, young people and church choir. Our service began with a lively rendition of ‘I am a lighthouse’ which got lots of reluctant adults onto the platform! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to embarrass their parents. This was followed by the children singing a number of favourite action songs. They were in great voice and did very well. We then had some lovely singing items from our teens who sang beautifully. Tiffies then gave a short testimony to salvation before the church choir came to sing two very good pieces. Diana spoke briefly about the prodigal son and gave a very clear message for both children and adults of what it means to come to Christ and the welcome that is waiting for each of us. There was a lovely atmosphere as she closed in prayer. We finished by singing ‘Stronger’ together. The children blasted the adults out of the water as they sang their all time favourite with great gusto!
Almost everyone waited for the supper provided in the bookshop at the end of the evening. During this part, one of our long standing parents, whom we have known for many years, spoke with Diana Rutherford and came to Christ. We are delighted with this. Other parents and families were very warm and responsive regarding the service and the youth work in general. There was a very happy atmosphere and a lovely presence of God over the whole night. We are ever grateful for His faithfulness to us in this work and appreciate continued prayers for these children and their families.
