This morning at Willowfield

Willowfield Parish Church in east Belfast does great work. This morning we were singing there (for the third time this year!) at the 10.00am service. We played four pieces, and tried to teach the folk there the old Scottish hymn "He'll Dry A Yer Tears". As ever, George Newell spoke really well, and gave me a fresh perspective on Jesus' parable of the sower and the seed. We enjoyed the sausage baps and tea afterwards, as well as good conversation and fellowship with George, and Nat and Ian McClean - they even have one of the old carved Lord's Prayer wall texts identical to the one at Killaughey Mission Hall. It's said that these might have been produced by a craftsman in the Belfast shipyard during the early 1900s. Pics from this morning are below.
