The service on Sunday was taken by two young member of the congregation. Emily Mitchell, a student at Tremough University and Chris Guiver, a researcher there.
The first hymn was “Great is thy faithfulness”. In the prayers of thanksgiving Chris gave thanks for God’s power and majesty, for God’s creation, for the gift of life and the world we live in. He also gave thanks to God for sending Jesus to us. In silence we asked for forgiveness.
The readings Psalm 67, Acts chapter 16 v 9-15, Revelation 21 and John chapter 14 were read by Margaret Parrott, Daphne Codgers, John Burns and Rose Webber.
In his talk Chris told how he is a researcher at the university and then he spoke about Psalm 67 and the Acts reading telling that God loves us unconditionally and when we call on God He responds to us through the Holy Spirit.
Emily then spoke on guidance telling how God shows us the way in our daily life and helps us to accept what God has planned for us. Emily ended by praying that God would help us to put our total trust in Him and hope to see God’s guiding light in the lives of all.
Peter Mehaffy then led the prayers of intercession praying for youth clubs, kids clubs and their leaders, university students, the Foodbank, world conflicts, for those in care and nursing homes, the unwell and our community.
The service ended by singing “Crown Him with many crowns.” Pianist was Myra Bennett. John Burn thanked Emily and Chris for a wonderful service. Tea and coffee was shared.
The service on Sunday will be taken by Richard Courtney. There will be “pop-in” on Monday from 1pm to 3pm.
