Forthcoming Events

 We hope to hold a ‘Life Explored’ course beginning on Monday 16th April at 7:30pm for 7 weeks for anyone who is interested in becoming a Christian; those who are wanting to find out who Jesus is and what it means for them, or those who have questions they are wanting answers for.  If this is you then you are very welcome.  Or if you have a friend who you would like to bring along you would also be welcome.  There are some invites available in the vestibule if you would like to take one and invite someone

The Path To Inclusion (a half day conference for anyone with an interest in people with learning disability and their place in the local church) will be held on Saturday 28th April from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm in Ballymena Baptist. Booking forms are available from Rev Boyd.

Senior Citizen Bus Trip – 18th May at 9:30am.  Bus leaving Church car park and travelling to Maryville House Tea Rooms in Belfast for morning coffee and scones.  After this we will go on to Lisburn to the ‘Flax to Fabric’ story of Irish Linen in Lisburn Museum and also an exhibition marking the Battle of the Somme.   From there we can either walk around nearby gardens or go for some retail therapy in the Main Street shops.  No day is complete without a good meal so for that we are going to Beechlawn House Hotel, Dunmurry.  We will return to Kells at 5pm.  To secure your seat please sign up on the sheet on the coffee dock and fill in your menu but hurry as it’s ‘first come, first served’.

The PW Annual Meeting is in assembly buildings, Belfast on Thursday 10th May.  There are meetings at 2.00pm and 7:30pm.  The speaker is Kate Patterson and the theme is ‘Beautiful’.  Our plan is to go for dinner in Belfast together, and then go to the evening meeting.  Or if you wish you could just come in time for the meeting and meet us there.  If you would like to attend, please give your name to Carolyn ASAP.  It should be a great evening, and it will be lovely to spend time together, so please come along if you are able.
