Verse of the Day

Rector's diary

I'm afraid you won't see very much of me this week! Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I'll be attending the Diocesan retreat in Dunfanaghy. On Thursday evening I'll be at Devenish College for the annual Prize-Giving and on Friday I'm conducting the wedding of my niece in Groomsport Parish Church. On Saturday, Jonathan and I will fly to Portsmouth where we will be participating in the 10-mile great South Run, returning Tuesday. (the run won't actually take that long!). I can still deal with email but emergency calls should be directed to Charlie.

Youth Announcements

Confirmation: - The 2015 confirmation will be open to BOTH year 9 and 10. This is due to the small number in year 10. It means that there will be no confirmation in 2016. Confirmation will be held on Pentecost Sunday, 24 May 2015 at 11.00 am. Please text or email me with names.

Youth-Led Praise: Our next Youth-Led Praise night will take place on Sunday 2 November from 7.00 pm in Ballinamallard Methodist church. Jonny Phenix will take us through James 2 and worship will be led by Saved And Serving. Those who attend regularly are very welcome to bring a friend along who hasn't been before - it would be great to see the church as packed as the parish room's starting to become!
