Sunday morning's worship was led by Mrs Pauline Reed with hymns accompanied by accordion.

She then spoke about Mary how Jesus had delivered her from 7 demons after which she became devoted to Him, she saw him crucified and on the third morning as she went to embalm him she was confused and dismayed to find His body not there. When He appeared and spoke her name her dismay turned to delight and she ran to tell the other disciples what she had seen and heard.
