Easter Meditation report 

compiled by Marion Shepherd , Royal Tunbridge Wells

11 April 2022

The sun had just set after a lovely Spring day but it was still a bright evening as the Congregation gathered in quiet expectancy for the Easter Meditation by the South London Fellowship Band and Tunbridge Wells Songsters. The understanding that this was ever more special, as it had not been possible for the last two years, was an unspoken realisation of all who gathered, to quieten our minds after the rejoicing of Palm Sunday to reflect about the week ahead.

The Congregation was led into the evening by The Band playing four numbers, “Holy, Holy, Holy”, “The Old Rugged Cross“, “Redeemed” and “Don’t doubt Him now” as people gathered quietly.

The meditation was introduced by Bandmaster Derick Kane and after  the congregation sang “Crown Him with many crowns”, then quietly flowed with the Band and Songster pieces interspersed with readings by Keith Bird.

The familiar strains of “Soli Deo Gloria”, “Here at the Cross”, “He is Lord”, “Shepherd Song”, “The Penitent“ and the “4th movement of Divine pursuit”, were enhanced by soloists, Jeremy Davis, Adrian Horwood and Andy Pretious. Tunbridge Wells Songsters sang “It was for me”, “Nothing but Thy blood “ and the ever challenging ,beautiful “Written in Red”.

Roger Gadsden challenged us to remember that Jesus took our place and that in our surrender to him we give back the life we owe.

The congregation sang “In Christ alone”, and the Benediction, played by the Band was an “Irish Blessing”, as an hour of rich blessing came quietly to a close.

Come and join us and our friends from Tunbridge Wells for an Easter week meditation.

Details below – we look forward to a time of meditation and fellowship together:
