We began our Christmas services with our annual Carols by candlelight on Sunday 17th. Special thanks to our young people from Re:Act for serving refreshments before and after the service and to John for playing the organ for us. Last but by no means least a very special thank you to Kirsty for putting together a special choir for the evening and drilling them well and giving us such wonderful carols.
We’re open! Come on down and see what’s going on.
We had a wonderful evening with the Lisburn Harmony Ladies on Friday 20th October.
The Event Committee has something for you all to look forward to during the cold autumn nights. The award winning Lisburn Harmony Ladies Choir, under the musical direction of Kirsty Orr, will be entertaining us with an evening of music and choral singing.
This musical evening is on Friday 20th October, commencing at 7.30pm. The choir consists of local ladies from Lisburn, so we are sure to be treated to an evening of fabulous music, glorious singing and from from the choir. Tickets are free (with a suggested donation of £8 to church funds) with light refreshments included. So please come along with friends and family to enjoy some toe tapping music.
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.
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.”
