A morning Praise Service and evening Thanksgiving Service on Sunday March 9 brought nine days of Christian outreach entitled ‘Rise & Shine’ at Magheragall Parish Church to a successful conclusion.
Led by evangelists Roger Murphy, Paul Hoey and Paul Woodman, the programme included: Mothering Sunday Service, Songs of Praise, Youth Drama, Coffee Mornings, Kids’ Club, Teddy Bear’s Picnic, Girl’s Nite In, Lad’s & Dad’s Nite In, Senior Citizen’s Club, Couple’s Nite Out, Men’s Breakfast, Spring Dander and Karting
The rector, the Rev Nicholas Dark led the morning Praise Service assisted by evangelists Roger Murphy, Paul Hoey and Paul Woodman.
During the service Paul Hoey interviewed Magheragall Mission Team members Nigel Adams and Margaret Leslie; and Roger Murphy interviewed Rev Dark and his wife Bronwen. Margaret Nelson presided at the organ and was accompanied by Bronwen Dark and a group of musicians and vocalists in leading the lively praise which included: ‘Jesus, all for Jesus’ and ‘To God be the glory’.
In his address Roger Murphy asked the question “who do you say I am – am I Lord of your life or not?” Paul Woodman, a Christian escapologist, also gave a short talk.
