Our time is now……..

January 21, 2018

Usually the evening service in Mountmellick Methodist church on the Midlands and Southern District is a fairly quiet, traditional affair, but recently the service was given over to the young people of the church who completely transformed the occasion.  In the February issue of the Methodist Newsletter, Nigel Gill described the service.  Below is an extract of a description of the beginning of the service:

The church was dimly lit. The buzz of excitement, tangible, as extra folk had gathered. Coloured lights swirled around the room from strategically placed globes. The overhead and a lamp were the only source of ‘true’ light. Four large canvasses of beautiful artwork, produced by one of our members, hung on the church walls displaying the theme. There was a hush, no one had called time, it just happened. ‘Hi I’m B,’ came a slightly shaky, soft-spoken, voice from the semidarkness. ‘This is J and J.  We are the worship team for tonight. Now we will have worship.’ The music started to flow. Once B started singing, his confidence kicked in and we all sang our way through three opening songs. The singing was powerful.

It is amazing what can be done by a small group of people with vision and the courage to try new things!
