Seymour Street Church live TV service on RTE 1

About 60 members of Seymour Street Methodist Church, Lisburn gave a live TV service on RTE 1 from the RTE Studio in Dublin on Palm Sunday at 11.15am.

The choir, praise group and representatives of the congregation travelled by coach to Dublin, leaving at 6.30am for rehearsal at the recording studio at 9.30am, returning to Lisburn at about 3.30pm.  They stopped on the way there and back for a short picnic provided by Jackie Wright and her team, further adding to the fun and fellowship of a great day out for the choir members and friends.

The Rev. Winston Good led the live TV Service in Dublin and the Rev. Brian Anderson gave the address.  Richard Wright - Organist, conducted the church choir and Paul Good and members of the praise group provided the musical accompaniment.  Jacqueline Sweeney led the prayers of intersession; and Lynn Trainor, a member of the church choir, accompanied by Steven McCrea, sang a solo entitled �God of the Moon and Stars�.  Other items of praise included, �Blessed is the King of Israel� and �Cast Your Burdens�.

The Palm Sunday Service was relayed live at Seymour Street Church in Lisburn, introduced by James Dumigan with technical support given by Wilson and Johnny Stewart.
