Visitors to Campbeltown Free Church found food for thought alongside coffee and cake at Café Church on Sunday afternoon.

In a short video, rugby international Euan Murray explained how becoming a Christian had changed his life and Free Church minister Rodger Crooks worked through the evidence for Jesus’ big claim to be God.

‘This is a big deal!’ he said, ‘because if Jesus isn’t God, we cannot know what God is like or be rescued from sin’s grip on our lives.

‘We face a big choice, to either reject Jesus as a deranged madman or a dangerous, evil trickster, or to trust in Jesus as God.’

He added: ‘Jesus’ resurrection convinced me to believe. If Jesus had been mad or bad, God would have left his body in the tomb. By raising him to life, he confirmed that Jesus is God.’

More than £100 was raised on the day for the Nancy Glen fund.

The next Café Church is on Sunday March 4 at 2.30pm.
