Re:Hope’s Building Transformation

This Easter Sunday at Re:Hope will be our first service in the new building! Tons of people have volunteered their time to demolish, clean, paint and assemble the rooms at the church that was in dire need of a refresh. The transformation has been amazing to see, check out some shots Brian just posted of the amazing new nursery!

I was able to help out with a bit of painting in the kids room on Tuesday, way up high in some scaffolding. Felt good to do a bit of manual labor for a while!

Monica rolls on some fresh paint.

Tonight there was a small prayer/worship time that we went to. The main room is looking great as well!

The church has an all new sound system!
The Bible has been read aloud in the church all week.

If you’re around Partick this Sunday, come to the service at 11am!

Re:Hope Android App

Just published Re:Hope’s brand new Android app to Android Market this morning. ┬áDesigned by Nervous Dave, coded by me!

We’re going to release the source code soon under the GPL, I’m hoping it will be a good foundation for other churches to get their own app out there.

A few more screenshots can be seen at Brian’s blog, and here’s the app on Android Market.

Pray for Re:Hope

Looks like everyone’s favorite church in Scotland is going through some exciting times! They may have the opportunity to purchase a building that they had to vacate months ago. One small problem is that it costs 1 million pounds! Please pray for them! Make sure to check Brian’s blog for updates.

What You Must Do on Friday


Last Friday, you probably saw Snakes on a Plane. (I didn’t because snakes freak me out, even CGI ones) That means that this Friday you should go to Andrew Platter’s CD Release Party at The Paradox! All the cool kids are gonna be there, and also the losers as well so all will feel welcome. There’s some other great bands playing also, one of them being my pal Steve’s Rebels & Scientists! So you have two options — go to this show or go to this show. The choice is yours!

Red Letter

A new band formed at my Church called ‘Red Letter’. They kinda remind me of Franz Ferdinand. The sound system in the auditorium there is really fantastic, and they really made sure to use it to its full potential. It was loud and they did some totally sweet low bass stuff with their keyboards. It was really great to worship to! You can download an mp3 of one of their songs from last Sunday if you would like.
