Cantata 2017 ~

Rehearsals start Sunday 3rd September

Hi friends. Excited for Sunday our 1st practice. Planning to listen through the music together and start teaching “Heart’s Waiting” and “Here we come a carolling”? Don’t worry if you don’t have a CD yet, planning to give them out on Sunday. I know a few of the old faithful singers from cantatas past are bowing out for this year and you will be missed.  Please try and encourage as many people to come along and find out more if you know anyone who you think may enjoy. Especially altos and sops. Great to have new folks already on board. Remind me below who reads music and who just needs words. Picking up the printed scores tomorrow

Dates for the cantata performances will be December   Friday 8th, Sat 9th and Sun 10th Dec

Evening Services 2017

As of 19th February, there is going to be a new focus for the evening services.

1st Sunday of the month.  This service will include the sharing of stories about what God has done or is doing in people’s life’s. This will normally be in the form of an informal interview. The service will also include some sung praise, videos, prayer and a message from the Bible.

2nd Sunday of the month. The main focus of this service will be  communion where we remember the death of Jesus. Communion will be central and the service will often include prayer, reflection, video, a short message  and some sung praise

3rd Sunday of the month. This service will be a more contemporary service aimed particularly at the millennial generation. It will include a more contemporary worship style and message. The service will at times be interactive and use video, reflective images and drama.

4th Sunday of the month. As part of this service we will engage with a culturally relevant topic or follow a sermon series as we consider how the Bible speaks today. This service will also include some sung praise, videos and prayer.

John Wilson ~ “aLive Ministry Tour”

As part of his “aLive Ministry Tour” John will be with us for a concert on the evening of 28th August.

Raised in the highlands, local singer and songwriter, John Wilson, is looking forward to returning to the area this summer and bringing his music ministry with him.

28th August ~ 6pm

John who has been based in Edinburgh for the last four years, along with his brother-in-law, David Maclean (of Inverness) have formed aLive Ministry over the past 18 months – and it’s certainly been an eventful time!
Despite only being able to commit part time whilst working towards his degree in Classical Music, these last 18 months have seen John record his debut Album “AGAPE”, minister to over 30 churches across the UK and also perform at Youth events, Outreach events and Christian Conferences and he has just recently received recognition for his music through the New Christian Music Awards.

Dohohoi Trip ~ 25th July-3rd August

content14_clip_image026In a few days time a group of our young people are going to the GLIA Centre of Hope in Romania.  This is their page, this is their story…

For more details on the Centre for Hope and the work they do…click here

 

Day one – about 60 children at 10:00 and more trickling in. Temperature 30C+ ……

We have had a brilliant first day of our holiday club in the GLIA centre of hope, Dorohoi.

Around 70 children attended and we told Bible Stories, the kids sang songs, played games and completed crafts.  The holiday club is called ‘Nava aventura’ which means ship adventure.  Today’s theme was sea of choice and we looked at the story of Jesus healing the leper.

The children were very excited To find out more about the story and take part in the days activities.

In the afternoon, some played football, other made loom bands and some had their faces and nails painted.  Some of the team visited some of the locals and experienced something of the extreme poverty that they face on a day to day basis.

The weather has been extremely warm and we are all sweating.  It is great fun but very tiring.

Day two – Tuesday – about 33-35C this morning. about 70 children again.

Today we had 70 kids come along to “Nava aventura” and we were happy to see new faces from some of the surrounding villages.  Children are picked up (the more the merrier) with heaps of kids being crammed in for a lift to the club. We are improving our Romanian by the day as the children are always keen to teach us. They are having heaps of fun and enjoy the scottish sweets on offer if they recite the memory verse! Todays craft was making a fishing game and the kids loved playing with them in the afternoon.

Each day a few of the team are taken out to visit some of the people that are cared for by Glia. When they return they are humbled and moved by what they saw. And it is an experience that they will never forget.

We are now heading off to bed – all shattered from the heat and the days activities!

We are all looking forward to seeing what God has planned for tomorrow 🙂

Day three  ~ very hot again but numbers keeping up (60-70). Team a bit tired today.

The weather continues to be very warm.  We are now beginning to enjoy the shade.

We are very aware of God’s presence as we serve Him here in Dorohoi.  The children’s club continues to go well and in the last couple of days we have told the children the stories of blind Bartimaeus and Zaccheaus.  We have had the opportunity to tell them about how much Jesus loves each one of them.  The children very much enjoy the singing and praise, particularly they love the song, ‘Our God is a Great big God‘.

There were 75 children at the club today Day four;  We have done various different crafts with them including bracelets, colouring in and making crosses.  They very much enjoy this, even the teenagers.  This afternoon we played various games with them.

Some of the team have again been out visiting some of the families that GLIA help.  This has been very challenging and has impacted them greatly.  It is hard to put into words. The team are well settled and have built great relationships with the centre staff and with the children.

Mark and Matt have built a bunk bed and will be fitting it tomorrow.

Please pray for wisdom, energy and a continued anointing upon each and every member of the team.

To God be the Glory
