This concert was quite a time in the planning as various singers and instrumentalists came together and compiled a programme of music which Eric would have enjoyed.
Around one hundred and eighty folk attended - representing many of the chapters of his life - some even telling me they went to primary school together.
We heard stirring anthems and majestic organ solos and somehow through it all we were reminded of just how much this faithful servant of God enhanced our worship at AFC for twenty five years.
Music and worship have always gone together in my book! Indeed I'm not really sure I could envisage corporate worship without a hymn or two.
At the end we assembled in the hall to share our memories of Eric and I was struck by how much kind hearted laughter filled the atmosphere. We really were remembering a true gentleman whose contribution to our worshipping life has simply been enormous and greatly appreciated.
I think he would have loved Sunday!
