Jerusalem Joy on the Isle of Wight (1)

During Holy Week, Roger, Mary, Annie, Jonathan (& Linda) and Trish have been at St. Rhadagund's Hotel on the Isle of Wight.  They are leading a special Holy Week music week, using the musical Jerusalem Joy as a tool to study Jesus' passion, death and resurrection.

Despite worries about numbers a few months ago, there are a good number of guests, and the week is going really well.  Highlights of the week so far have included Annie leading an epilogue about jewels, and one lady hearing from God what kind of jewel she is - wonderful!  Jonathan preached in the morning on Palm Sunday, all the team have been contributing to leading worship, and Roger has been leading the morning Bible teaching.  Annie has been working hard training up the choir and also including the array of instruments, which includes Phil on bass.

Last night Brian Harley, a local URC minister, came in and led an evening about the Passover meal with the guests, which went down really well.
