First Lewis conference
A group of like-minded brethren from different churches began a monthly prayer meeting in Stornoway last October, in the lead-up to the inaugural Lewis Christian Conference.
This conference took place from Friday 29 June until Monday 2 July, when the speaker was Charles Price, senior pastor of the People’s Church in Ontario, Canada.
The conference theme was ‘Living in the fullness of Christ’. The High Church was kindly made available for conference meetings and the church was full each night, with 600-700 attendees.
On the Lord’s Day, Pastor Price preached in Stornoway High Church in the morning and Stornoway Free Church in the evening. He also spoke to a packed audience in the Caberfeidh Hotel, for the Bayhead Youth Group.
Mr Price mentioned that he had an interest in visiting Lewis as he had heard much about the work of God here during times of revival. His great-grandfather was converted during the 1904 Welsh revival.
Mr Price said he enjoyed his visit to Lewis even more than he had anticipated. He left Lewis on Tuesday 3 July to speak at the Faith Mission Convention in Edinburgh.
Lewis Christian Conference appreciated the support evidenced by the large attendance at meetings and prays that the teaching of God’s Word will have been blessed to many.
The monthly inter-denominational prayer meeting continues in the Associated Presbyterian Church, Stornoway, on the second Monday of each month, at 7.30pm; all are welcome to attend.
Lewis Christian Conference plans to hold two conferences in 2013, Lord willing. Further information soon on: lewischristianconference.wordpress.com
