The Mayor - Councillor Trevor Lunn and the Mayoress - Mrs Laureen Lunn were the special guests at morning worship in Lambeg Baptist Church last Sunday (22nd October).  Church secretary George Allen led the service and welcomed the Mayor, Mayoress and the guest speaker John Miller, an elder from Moira Baptist Church.  During his address John, a former OMF missionary in Malaysia and Singapore, spoke about worshipping at the feet of Jesus just like Mary did when He visited the home of Mary and Martha prior to His death on the cross. Paul McComiskey on keyboard and a group of musicians and vocalists from the congregation led the praise. 

George Allen, Paul McComiskey, Ivan Adair and David Black from Lambeg Baptist Church, Albert Smylie from Lisburn Baptist, David Montgomery from Moira Baptist, Nigel Cameron from Strandtown Baptist and Andrew Herron from Baptist Missions France, are members of the music group ‘Slemish’.  During Monday 10th to Tuesday 16th October they played five concerts in the Puertollano region of Spain at the invitation of Belfast Missionaries Jonathan and Susan Sanlon who are currently working with UFM in that area.  At each concert they played Irish ballads and new Irish Hymns finishing off with a Gospel video presentation.  Prior to leaving for Spain, the Lisburn Mayor provided them with Lisburn City Council plaques, which they presented to the Minister of Culture of the areas they played in.  In return they were presented with a book, ceramic plate and a picture, which George Allen subsequently presented to the Lisburn Mayor and Mayoress during their visit to Lambeg Baptist Church last Sunday morning.

Following the presentation the Mayor spoke of the warm welcome he had received at all the Lisburn churches he had visited within the past few weeks.  He brought the greetings and best wishes of Lisburn City Council and thanked them for their invitation.

Lambeg Baptist Church, who currently has a vacancy for a pastor, will welcome Mr Trevor Lennon as their new Pastor at a Service of Induction in the Worship Centre of Belfast Bible College on Friday 3rd November 2006.
