The skies were dark and angry and the rain eventually poured on the way to church this morning but once inside it was warm, bright and friendly. The 18-26yr old Young Single Adults spoke to us...and the theme was? You've guessed it!
Steph...Knowledge of Christ.
Deb...Who is Christ?
James...Suffering of Christ
Hannah...Death conquered through Christ
Daryl...Personal testimony of Christ in scripture and beyond.
Lydia, Deb, Suzanne and Martha also sang to us.
The other meetings were similarly uplifting.
This afternoon we dropped David and Helen Bourne into the centre of Newark ready for the Christmas Carol singing by the Carlton Male Voice Choir and the official turning on of the lights.
We missed the lights but dropped by afterwards to see them on our return from the family gathering to celebrate Ashley's 24th birthday.
It was a jam-packed day but very enjoyable.
Check these out...
Bev and me up on the big screen at last...
Can't resist another...this time with Helen.
Yes, it was a really good day with the family and, even though Juli was too far away to attend she was able to sing 'happy birthday' to Ashley with us via hands-free mobile.
