Moira’s Big Weekend!

Friday 10 - Sunday 12 June

An Inter-Church Event organised by 5 of Moira’s Churches

‘Moira’s Big Weekend’ had a packed programme of family–friendly events that attracted hundreds of people of all ages. The aim was outreach and over the weekend special guest, Bishop Ken Clarke, addressed The Big Issue, The Big Question and The Big Decision. All of this took place in a Big Tent! (1000 seater marquee)

The ‘Big Weekend’ got off to a brilliant start on Friday 10 June with the Kids’ Morning. Moira’s 2 primary schools had been invited and over 500 children came along for a fun programme of songs, puppeteering, prayers and (of course) balloon modelling.

The fun coninued with the Big Family Fun Day in a sunny Moira Demesne on Saturday afternoon and on both Friday and Saturday nights the marquee became an Acoustic Café. From 7–11.00 pm, folk enjoyed live music, refreshments and a short message from Bishop Ken. On Sunday morning the tent and overflow held an amazing 1200 people gathered for worship led by the 5 church leaders along with a combined praise band and choir, local primary school choirs, puppets and Bishop Ken.

Afterwards, there was a ‘Picnic in the Park’ complete with face painting and those busy puppets! A ‘BIG THANK YOU’ to all those who helped to make the weekend such a success!! Well done everyone! Praise God for His faithfulness to us!

New Curates

I am delighted to be able to say that the Rev Peter Munce, his wife Celia and their 2 (soon to be 3) children will be joining us in St John’s in late August/September. We look forward to having Peter and his family with us and are excited about their ministry amongst us.

As Peter comes to us, we say a fond farewell to the Rev Dennis Chrisie, his wife Jenny and their 3 children - Abby, David and Jono. We have been so blessed to have this family as part of St John’s and we wish them well in their new adventure with God in Ballymena, where Dennis will be the Curate Assistant. We look forward to hearing what God does in them and through them all in the future. The dates of the ordinations are to be announced. In the mean time please pray for both these families as they begin this new phase in ministry and settle in to their new communities.
