Gospel Service at Moruya

Soprano, Fiona Jones

Next one – November!

On the weekend of the 19th and 20th May the town of Moruya celebrated the River Of Art. As part of this Moruya Uniting Church held a Gospel church service.

Well the Gospel Service went off on the morning of 20th May and it was a ripper! Kay’s sermon on prayer was half as long as the one at the big wedding the night before and twice as good.

Congratulations and thanks to Kay Killick for putting together such good group and individual set of support acts and leading the service.

The singing was led by the town Brass Band under the baton of Denis Buckley, we had the haunting soprano voice of Fiona Jones, Jeff Westbrook sang “The Lord’s Prayer” with his resonant baritone voice and the Sing Australia choir performed several items culminating in everybody’s favourite, “Holy City” with the congregation joining in the chorus.

After the service, we had a sandwich and slice lunch in the Fellowship Centre.

There is a big thank you to all those who provided the sandwiches and slice and who worked in the kitchen to set it all up and clean up afterwards. Many hands make light work. There was an abundance of food for all. there was plenty left over – that’s what happens when you let Ladies loose with Loaves and Fishes! Rev John Thomas took some of the leftover food to “Hope House” at Batemans Bay. The men there would be really happy to have it.

Thanks also to the church members and folk from the community who did the 100 and 1 jobs, the lifting and shifting and everything else that contributed to the service being such a success.

The retiring offering and the lunch donations indicated what a generous congregation we had, well done.

If you missed out this time, the good news is that we will do it again in November so be prepared!
