Photo's from our Easter Sunday Services (1st April 2018) @ BCNC
Two very well attended Easter Sunday Services at BCNC. In the morning we welcomed the Rev Arthur Christie who led the All Age family Service where the congregation decorated the cross with colourful flowers. Our very own talented Praise Band led our worship with the youngsters doing their 'Easter Egg Hunt' in church. Arthur then invited them to wrap up Session Clerk Andy Beattie in linen cloth from head to toe (it was heard by some to leave him like that !) Lol In the evening the Rev Elizabeth Kenny led our Easter Praise Service with lots of enthusiastic singing led by the band once again. We Shared Holy Communion together before singing one final song. We then went through to the Guthrie Hall doing the 'Conga' (another surprise up Elizabeth's sleeve) and enjoyed some 'Easter Goodies' with tea / coffee.
Palm Sunday Service - 25th March 2018
Elizabeth illustrating her talk ' Expect the unexpected' !
The Rev Elizabeth Kenny asked all the men wearing a 'tie' to join her at the front of the church during this mornings service. She spoke about Jesus entering Jerusalem before the large crowds that had gathered to see him. What they probably were not expecting was the mode of transport he used ...... a donkey! Also at this point the people would not be expecting the events that were about to unfold over the coming week. So Elizabeth to illustrate this point 'expect the unexpected' took out a pair of scissors walked along the line of guys and to Roberts dismay decided to cut his tie through the middle much to the amusement of the congregation.
Saturday Night Takeaway !
