Pictured at the Summer Epilogue
Service in Seymour Street Methodist Church last
Sunday evening are L to R: Rev Brian Anderson, Rev
James Todd and Rev Winston Good.
The Rev James Todd, the recently installed minister of St
Columba�s Presbyterian and Methodist Church, Lisburn, was the
guest preacher at the summer epilogue service in Seymour Street
Methodist Church last Sunday evening where he was welcomed by
the minister, the Rev Brian Anderson, who led the service.
Previously minister of Second Newtownards Presbyterian Church,
Mr Todd succeeded the Rev John Honeyford, who in April 2007,
became minister 2nd Castlederg and Alt Presbyterian Church in
the presbytery of Derry and Strabane.
In a challenging address, Mr Todd spoke on the story of Jesus
walking on the water emphasising the need for all of us all to
reflect upon our faith and our dependency on Jesus. Also taking
part in the service were the Rev Ken McGrath (Lisburn Cathredral)
who read the Scripture lesson; Inez Price (1st Lisburn
Presbyterian) who prayed for others; and Noel Guest, Paul Good
and a group of musicians from Seymour Street Methodist Church
who led the praise which was a combination of traditional and
modern. Following the service, good conversation was heard from
around the church as members of the united congregations of
Seymour Street Methodist, Lisburn Cathredral, First Lisburn and
Railway Street Presbyterian Churches met the new minister of St
Columba�s and chatted over a cup of tea.
The epilogue service next Sunday evening (10th August) will be
held in Railway Street Presbyterian Church at 8.00pm; the guest
speaker will be Mr Colin Elliott, Principal of Brownlee Primary
