Open Air Songs of Praise on Sunday 11th June 2017

We looked at the weather forecast. It wasn't brilliant. It said that we may have sunny periods with possible showers. That's how it turned out.

We assembled in the Minnie Pit Memorial Garden. We shared in the Songs of Praise led by Rev'd Helen Hoe with the North Shropshire Methodist Youth Choir under their conductor and pianist Alison Saville with husband Mark being our speaker for the afternoon.

Mark spoke about Hope. He based his message on a passage from the Old Testament Prophet Jeremiah Ch 29 verses 10 to 13 in which God encourages the people to look for a future with hope. Mark said that many people are looking for Hope in their lives today. We live in such a changing world with so much hatred. In every area of our lives we need to find Hope and for the Christian that Hope in God comes through our knowledge of Jesus and the love that He showed for us as He went to the cross on Calvary's Hill. The hope for the Christian is in the empty tomb on Easter morning. Jesus is alive and in that we have hope for our lives on this earth and in eternity.

The Youth Choir led our music for the afternoon and we were just about to have our final hymn when the rain came down somewhat heavier than previously and we all adjourned to the Church Hall for our final hymn and to share in drinks and cakes.

To all who came to share the Songs of Praise with us in this our 150th Anniversary year we say thank you for coming .
