Our Festival over the weekend was a great success. We gathered for rehearsal at 2.00pm on Saturday 7th June in the Free North Church and were delighted that about 80 men were present.

After rehearsal we walked up to the area of Church Street below the steeple and sang to those who passed by. Many stopped and were very appreciative of our praises.

Back to the Free North for tea, followed by a time of prayer, before we assembled for community singing before the Festival.

During the Festival we sang our praises to our Lord and Redeemer, and included an invitation to all, to "Listen and heed His loving call" for as we sang in our closing piece "Receive Him e're He pleads no more, and Christ rejected leaves thy door".

On Sunday we gathered in the East church for an After Church rally at 8.00pm There were just 34 men present but it was a truly memorable time of fellowship.

A great weekend!
