We recently welcomed Rev Alberto de Paula for our May communion services. It was a pleasure to hear him preach on 1 John 1 vs 1-4, and on the Beatitudes in the evening. Alberto is the minister of Broughty Ferry Presbyterian Church, which is one of the newest Free Churches in our denomination: http://www.broughtyferrypresbyterianchurch.org/
It has been heartening seeing the growth of St Peter’s Free Church in Dundee, and now we have another church there, as well as a soon-to-be church plant in Charleston, on the northwest edge of the city.
Alberto hails from Brazil and so it was good to spend time at our after-church fellowship hearing how he was converted, what brought him to Scotland and what challenges and opportunities he faces in his current congregation. We finished off with a time of prayer, praying specifically for what Alberto shared with us. We are thankful to Alberto for the taking the time to come and visit and open God’s Word up for us.
