Songs of Praise

on Sunday Evening Service 10th February 2019


A full Church for our 'Songs of Praise' evening.

A very enjoyable night of praise. We were truly blessed to listen and take part on a mix of traditional and contemporary hymns from our Church Choir and with solos from Stanley, Niall and Kenny. We have received so many positive comments and feedback about our praise service. Thanks to Rev. Nigel Reid and Andrew for all their hard work pulling this all together.


As Bob would say... Alleluia!

Our Songs of Praise offering was in aid of the 'Congo Initiative' and we were delighted to have Dr Bill McAllister, the eldest son of Bob & Alma McAllister take part in our service and speak to us about his work at the Congo Initiative. We were very privileged to have Bob with us on the night. Bob devoted much of his life as a missionary in the Congo and continues to this day inspiring those around him at First and Second Markethill Presbyterian Church.
