Of course there are times when we cannot be anything other than sombre – not least in worship, when we consider the state of our world and our own shortcomings. But these moments will be far exceeded when we will worship with smiles on our faces!! How can we keep from smiling when we consider all that God has done for us – the many ways in which we are blessed. Why not take a moment to give thanks to day – to count your blessings.
The annual retreat for men has become an absolute highlight for many, with the dates for next year being put in diaries as soon as this year is over! March 10-12th saw almost 40 men descend on the Cairngorm Christian Centre at Kincraig, by Aviemore – half from Arbroath and vicinities and half from south Wales, from the Victory Outreach Supported Housing Centre.
The weekend consisted of the usual mix of fun and fellowship AND worship, biblical reflection and ministry. Pictured here, is the young team but alongside them we had men in every generation right up to the retired!
What a weekend! Here’s to next year.
We have a treat in store this Sunday evening (12th March, 6.30pm) when May Smith – one of our most respected seniors – will be sharing some of her life story. May will be recounting some of the key moments in her life – the highs and lows, ups and downs – and reflecting on where she is now and on how God has sustained her along the road. This, you won’t want to miss.
Michael and the band will lead the praise. All in all, a great night in store.
