United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands


"Lord, do it Again!"

 "Lord, do it Again!" This was the title the Moderator, the Rt. Rev. Oliver Daley, said he wished to give to his sermon for Cayman Convocation 2012, which was held at the Mary Miller Hall on Sunday 27th May. And it was a refrain he used effectively as he exhorted and encouraged the Church in Cayman to fit ourselves to make use of the blessing and power of the Pentecost, by letting the Holy Spirit equip us for ministry in these times, with the challenges of what he termed the “new normal”, where our society no longer necessarily accepts the Church’s teachings on many moral issues as the norm. Also participating in this year’s service was the Rev. Dr. Ofelia Ortega from our partner church the Presbyterian-Reformed Church in Cuba, who said she was uplifted by the service and the powerful and insightful sermon of Rev. Daley.

A large group of students from one of the Church’s schools in Jamaica, St. Andrew Preparatory School, also ministered in song (pictured), music and dance. They had been in Cayman for a week, with their teachers from the Creative and Performing Arts Department and Principal, and had ministered in a number of schools. The Hall resounded with beautiful music, of varied styles, provided by our (growing!) band and United Choir. Deep appreciation was extended on behalf of the Church to Mr. Michael McGrath, the retiring Director of our Cayman Prep and High School, for his nine years of service in helping to lead the School from strength to strength, and the Moderator offered a special prayer for him.
