The weekly Gathering started again on Wednesday 13th Sept at 8pm. For the next number of weeks we will be following 1 Peter as we seek to understand what it means to Walk the talk. We will be looking at the whole idea of transformation, particularly of the mind.
It might be wet but church life goes on
Well, it certainly wasn’t the driest summer we’ve ever had, but we hope you’ve had a good summer anyway!
We had great fun at the Big Fab Holiday club, we hope you were able to get along and join in. It was lovely to see lots of the parents and siblings come along on the Friday to enjoy the BBQ.
The regular church organisations start back again this month including FAB on Friday 15th September
We have a new course starting on Tuesday this week for all parents. Whether you are rocking parenting, feeling overwhelmed, both or somewhere in between Parentalk is designed to give you a safe environment to discuss the many challenges facing families today.
See the Parentalk page here for more details.
This month we’re delighted welcome Lewis. Lewis has just started his degree in Youth Ministry and Practical Theology at CYM. As part of his course he will be on placement with us for the full 3 years of his course. We’re very excited to see what God has in store for both Lewis and us as a parish.
“Hello, my name is Lewis Mason, and I’m a new placement student. I’m studying Youth Ministry and Practical Theology at CYM. I live in Saintfield but usually only spend the latest hours of night in the town as I’m busy travelling the far and wide of the country most days. I have only recently finished my A levels but instead of taking some time off of education, decided to get stuck right back into education while at the same time serving the Lord on my course. I’m looking forward to quickly becoming part of Derryvolgie’s church community and getting to know everyone who I will be serving alongside and also seeing around the church on a weekly basis.”
Toilets toilets everywhere
We were delighted to welcome back Susan from Toilet Twinning today. You have been busy saving up and spending your pennies in our Toilet Twinning Toilet and we were delighted to hand over a cheque for £600 to help with this fundamental basic right for those in desperate need.
Thank you for all your support over the last few months on this, something as simple as a toilet can be life changing.
