Yes I know we are already a week into 2008 but this is my first post of the year. A combination of a holiday, a manic lead up to Christmas and a new year spent in my home town in Scotland with no internet access has meant a lean time for blogging. But here we go.
Our special Christmas services were great. Our best attendance on a Sunday so far has been around 750. On the Sunday before Christmas we put on 3 special morning services, including a musical presentation based on the Willow Creek resource - Imagine. We created a bit of a buzz by issuing tickets (helping us to distribute people over all 3 services). We then did an evening service in a traditional Carols by Candlelight style with MK Brass Band. Over the whole day we had well over 1,200 attend our services. Awesome.
Although I was not there a few hundred people showed up for our traditional Christmas Day family service and I understand 5 people gave their lives to Jesus! What better day to start following Jesus, on His day!
