It was great to have to have over 25 people attend our chapel new year party. As well as supper, we played Pinch the Parcel, the Minister's Cat and had poems and a drama sketch.
During the watch night service at 11.30, we sang 'Come Ye that Love the Lord', heard six testimonies relating to God's provision during the last year. Jeremiah 6 was preached upon; God invites His people to follow the old paths. This doesn't mean we need be old fashioned or backward looking, but we need to anchor ourselves to the Rock of Ages.
We closed with
How good is the God we adore,
How faithful unchangeable friend,
Whose love is as great as his power,
And knows neither measure no end.
’Tis Jesus the First and the Last,
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home,
We’ll praise Him for all that is past,
And trust Him for all that’s to come.
