Good and Pleasant

Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!

So begins Psalm 133, and we saw that this evening in the Burton Hall at St Elizabeth's. It was our turn to host the Dundonald Community Service, where local churches join together around God's word, bringing together our congregations and demonstrating our unity in the gospel and the Lord Jesus.

So many people turned up that we ran out of space in the hall, ran out of space on the stage, ran out of chairs, and people sat out in the porch as well! The service included features on Inform, the young adults group which is currently shared between St E's and the Presby's, and on Oxigen, the youth outreach programme in August. Rev Dr Ivan McKay, the minister of Dundonald Presbyterian Church was the preacher, and we also had an interview with Ivan. This was Ivan's last Community Service, as he is due to retire from Dundonald at the end of June.

The sermon can be heard on the St Elizabeth's sermon site. Well worth a listen!

Other churches involved were St Mary's Ballybeen, Dundonald Methodist, and Dundonald Baptist. A great supper was provided which was heartily enjoyed!
