A group of like-minded brethren began a monthly prayer meeting in Stornoway last October in the lead up to the Lewis Christian Conference, which took place last weekend.
The speaker was Pastor Charles Price who is the Senior Pastor of the Peoples Church in Ontario, Canada. The theme of the conference was “Living in the fullness of Christ”.
The High Church was kindly made available for the conference meetings and the church was full each night with between six and seven hundred people attending. On the Lord’s Day Pastor Price preached in Stornoway High Church in the morning and in Stornoway Free Church in the evening. He also spoke to a packed audience in the Caberfeidh Hotel for the Bayhead Youth Group. CDs and DVDs of the three conference meetings will be produced and may be ordered by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Charles Price mentioned that he had an interest in visiting Lewis as he had heard and read much about the work of God here during times of revival. His great-grandfather was converted during the 1904 Welsh revival. He enjoyed his visit to Lewis even more than he had anticipated.
Pastor Price left Lewis on Tuesday to speak at the Faith Mission Convention in Edinburgh. Lewis Christian Conference appreciate the support evidenced by the large attendance at all meetings and pray that the teaching of God’s Word during the conference days would be blessed to many. The monthly inter-denominational prayer meeting continues to be held in the Associated Presbyterian Church, Stornoway on the second Monday of each month at 7.30 pm and all are welcome to attend.
Lewis Christian Conference plan to hold two conferences in 2013 for further information will soon be made available on the website: lewischristianconference.wordpress.com
