picture of church building at night time

In the 1980's March was often Gospel Mission time at Grace Baptist Church Peel. A week of gospel preaching, with Matthew Else proclaiming the saving grace of Jesus Christ, often saw the building full as the newspaper article from the "Manx Star" of 12th March 1982 reported. The notable comment from the journalist is perhaps the phase, "One either loves or hates his particular message, but there can be no half measures." This must always be the reaction when the gospel of Jesus Christ is faithfully preached, to some it is the power of God unto salvation, but to others it is foolishness.
