What a fantastic day of Easter worship! We began at 8am, under the towering walls of Arbroath Abbey, with our friends from the Town Mission, Old & Abbey Church and the Salvation Army. A great way to start the day – and all the better with bacon rolls to finish! The church was packed at 11am for our all-age celebration! Adele and Jennie shared the Easter message through a dozen eggs and then we all shared in Communion.
The day was rounded off with our evening service, led by Michael and the band, with Martin offering the 7 reasons why we should have absolute confidence in the truth of the resurrection!
A day to remember. Christ is risen!
We’re big fans of holiday clubs here at St. Andrew’s but this one Rock Hero, was surely one of the best ever! We wrote and produced the programme ourselves and all we needed was for the children to come along and join in – they didn’t disappoint us!! We had a fantastic week with around 60 children taking part. The fun was non-stop but we made sure that the boys and girls got to hear something about the amazing love of God, shown in Jesus. Most of all, thanks to our amazing holiday club team – 27 adults and teens, all giving up a week to concentrate on sharing with the children. Team – you were awesome!!
Of course there are times when we cannot be anything other than sombre – not least in worship, when we consider the state of our world and our own shortcomings. But these moments will be far exceeded when we will worship with smiles on our faces!! How can we keep from smiling when we consider all that God has done for us – the many ways in which we are blessed. Why not take a moment to give thanks to day – to count your blessings.
