We are grateful for the safe arrival of the team, including someone who drove all the way from the Isle of Harris, having never driven on the mainland before! On Saturday evening the team spent time with some of the congregation and watched 'Logic on Fire' - a recent documentary about God's work through Martyn Lloyd-Jones.
On the Lord's Day, there was a further opportunity for the team and congregation to get to know each other over a church lunch. In the afternoon we went into a nursing home, which one of the members of the church has recently moved into. We held a brief time of worship with the residents, singing some familiar psalms.
On Monday the team made the most of the glorious bank holiday weather to give out leaflets inviting people along to our Mission services from Wednesday to Friday this week, along with two special services on the Lord's Day. Some good conversations were had, and two of the team members came across a man who said he had been searching for something more, and said he might come along. We pray that he would. Following a BBQ tea, the team spent time doing some practical work around the manse.
We finished the night off with a discussion of the opportunities and challenges small churches have. We are thankful for a great start to the week!
