It was a great pleasure to welcome Rev. John Thomson back to Hillhouse to lead us in worship this morning.Unfortunately we are unable to bring you this as a power failure put our audio-visual system and our organ out of action.However with a “substitute” musical instrument,the use of hymn books and everbody being in good voice those of us who were present enjoyed a fine service and thanks is due to all who so ably took part.
