This is the update Helen sent to friends and family after the weekend:
"Had a great worship works weekend at Blyth Central Methodist. The people were incredibly friendly and seemed to be blessed by what we had to share. The minister, Ann, and the whole congregation are incredibly hard-working, trying to reach their community in lots of different ways, and they seem to be having a real impact among families and children. Apart from my visit to play piano for breakfast church yesterday we were mostly working with the regular adult congregation. I think we were able to provide space for them to meet with God amid all of the business!
Yesterday afternoon we led an ecumenical area service and there were a good number there from lots of different churches, which was great. I had an interesting chat with Danny, the organist, who was really blessed by a strong feeling of the Holy Spirit's presence."
|Coastline Community Church|
"We had a good two evenings at Pittenweem. The Coastline Community Church there was formed when two Baptist churches came together. The lady who invited us was Christine Heron, who knew Roger and Mary well from Christian Endeavour days. The church seemed fairly vibrant with a heart for outreach in the area. The pastor was a very young Irish man Daniel who had recently moved there with his Swedish wife Marlin. They, along with the (also Irish) youth pastor Robert and his wife Gemma, looked after us very well.
The first Worship Works evening was not amazingly attended but it seemed to go well. It is sometimes tricky to know what to bring to a congregation who already seem to know and use a lot of newer material. But Roger felt God say to use what he has put in our hands. I think some of what we had to share about worship leading people into the Most Holy Place and also prophetic worship was new to them.
The following evening we led a ways to praise session and there were a lot more people there from a number of churches. It was a really good evening."
