Covenant Service 2019
The annual Covenant Service was held at South Petherwin Methodist Chapel on Sunday 1st September. The Chapel was packed to near capacity as the Superintendent Minister Rev Malcolm Jones led the service. The Rev Jo Smart led the prayers and Rev Cathy Arscott and Rev Doreen Sparey-Delacassa read the Scriptures.
A presentation was given by 18 year old Max Dinnis to highlight his forthcoming work for Rock UK. This is a christian charity which provides adventure holidays for disadvantaged children across the UK. Max spoke of how important the Methodist Church was in regards to the foundation of his faith.
The Rev Malcolm preached on the role of the new covenant and the demise of the old covenant. This changed the view of the new church in Christ from looking inward to an outward expression of the new covenant. The congregation were encouraged to relax with a number of joyful humorous jokes and take up the challenge set by the formal words of the Methodist Covenant.
The service concluded with the hymn, Now thank we all our God”. Light refreshments followed in the the Sunday School.
