And in the evening Andy Robertson preached what one visiting preacher called “the best sermon I’ve ever heard on Ecclesiastes”!

Ministers Monday Message:
It was an absolute joy to be back worshipping with you yesterday. Just sitting praying, praising, hearing the Scriptures being read and God’s word being preached by Sinclair, was wonderful. I hope God willing to be back preaching next Sunday morning – Easter Sunday.
Leading up to that we have something new for St Peter’s – almost a week of Easter services with various local preachers. These will be short (ish) services every evening from six to seven.
On Tuesday the theme is Jerusalem; Wednesday, Gethsemane; Thursday, The Upper Room (including Communion); Friday, Golgotha. Then on Saturday we have a Family Easter Event from 2-4pm.
Can I encourage you to support as many of these events as you can; both for your own sake and also for friends and family. I would suggest that the Saturday and Sunday mornings would be particularly appropriate to invite people to. The Cross and Resurrection of Christ are The World changing events. It is as people come to experience that for themselves that their world is changed.
Pray, invite, come….and worship.
See you during the week….
Yours in Christ
It’s good to report at the end of the week that these services went really well – excellent attendances, great preaching and a sense of the Lord’s presence….a good way to spend Easter week. Now looking forward to this morning!
Our Easter hymn this year has been City Alight’s Jerusalem:
1 Thessalonians 1 (Sinclair Ferguson), Mark 5 (Harry Mealyea); Learning to be Happy; How He Loves (Crowder) and Monday Message
