On Sunday at Stonehaven South Church worshippers contemplated the miraculous power of faith as the Choir under the direction of David Sell gave a beautiful rendition of Getty and Townend's song "By faith we see the hand of God" including the challenging message "to go in the power of the Spirit to the lost and to preach good news in every corner of the earth".

Reverend Rosslyn Duncan welcomed all to worship and the congregation joined in the singing of the great Easter hymn "The head that once was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory now".  In her address to the children she spoke of how we use our whole body in worshipping God, eyes to see, ears to listen, hands and feet to serve Him and above all hearts to Love Him, and she presented the children with pictures demonstrating all these actions.

The Old Testament reading spoke of how Moses was instructed by his father-in-law to choose officers to help govern the people of Israel. Rosslyn then told the congregation how important certain individuals had been in the organisation of Stonehaven South Church. These individuals being our Elders the dedicated men and women who over the last five decades have provided so much service and care to the Church family and parish.

The reading from Luke's gospel recalled the appearance of the Resurrected Christ to His disciples in the Upper Room, the appearance initially frightening but ultimately reassuring having that same degree of love and intimacy that they previously had experienced in those days when they had shared in His earthly life and ministry. Worship concluded in the singing of the uplifting hymn "Our eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord".
