Easter Weekend

by Susie Jean Sharkey


Over the Easter weekend the Glasgow church joined together with the rest of the Struthers Fellowship for the annual Easter conference. Meetings were held between the Greenock and the Glasgow churches.

The first meeting was held on the Friday evening in Greenock, followed by two meetings in the Glasgow church on Saturday and a further three meetings in the Greenock church on Easter Sunday. On the Sunday evening there were five candidates going through the waters of Baptism. This was a very uplifting service as each candidate testified to how they had become a Christian and the difference it had made in their lives. Before going through the waters, each candidate received a Baptismal Promise and then were baptised.

Over the course of the whole weekend there was a lovely sense of the Presense of God in the midst of us and that wonderful sense of the victory of Christ when He arose on resurrection morning.
