"Well done AMC! Fabulous talent, great entertainment. Thanks to those who worked hard to make a wonderful evening." So tweeted our minister Helen Kirk, after Saturday's Extravaganza concert of talent organised by Pauline Latham and an army of helpers.
It was a real variety show with singing from choral, a capella, and Zimbabwean groups, duets and solos, music from opera to pop, from classical to African and from ballads to show music. There were instrumental solos on violin, cello, organ and guitars and comedy from comic poems, sketches and stand-up. Contributors were from 8 to 80s. In a total 'feel good' evening, the personal stand-outs for me were the awesome voice of professional opera singer Jacqueline Varsey, the precocious instrumental talent of Shona and Adele Beecham and the fun and zestful contributions of the youngsters.

Indeed, no one understands them; they utter mysteries by the Spirit. 3 But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and...

Pete Honeyball: Thu 10 Jun 5:00am

Love is Pete's theme with this beautiful chapter of 1 Corinthians 13.Love Is Indispensable1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all...
