The Moderator will give an update on the Tsunami disaster this Thursday evening in Church House. We will be attending this as part of our Mid-week worship and will need to leave the church around 6.45. There are lifts available for everyone. Please attend so your prayers etc can continue to be focussed.

On Saturday 28th of May some volunteer labour is needed to remove a damaged wall at the manse and replace it with a wooden fence. More details later.

The voting list for a new congregational committee is up on display to fulfill the requirements under then Presbyterian code. Voting will take places next week. Please consider your decisions prayerfully.

There will be a Golfing Day out on June 9th during the daytime. The cost is £24. Come even if you do not know how to play! More details later.

Sunday School Trip
Between 60 and 70 Children, parents and helpers joined together yesterday to go to the Presbyterian Fun Day at the Folk and Transport Museum. The weather was lovely and a good time was had by all. Thanks to all who support the Sunday School, without your help we would not be able to do as much.

Monday 1st to Friday 5th August
Landlubbers are pirates searching for hidden treasure on a desert island. They discover the greatest treasure of all: knowing Jesus. Landlubbers introduces children to Jesus and invites them to become his followers.
During the summer we will have a team of 12 to 15 American visitors staying with us. They will be doing a street clean-up in the local area, some practical work in the church, leading a Fun Day and halping with our week of Outreach to the children and young people of the area.
The Outreach week will run as it usually does, with the team gathering for prayer and bible study, lunch, the afternoon session for 5-10 year olds, dinner, then the evening session for 10-14 year olds. If you usually help in any way this is even more necessary. Please let Barbara or Jack know if you are willing to help with the Outreach or with helping cook food for the team.

Global Day of Prayer
This Sunday 15th May, Pentecost Sunday, an historic and unprecedented prayer event is being held between 3.00 pm and 5.30 pm in the grounds of the Stormont Estate in Belfast, as part of the first Global Day of Prayer. The event will include praise and prayers for our nation and for the world. This initiative, originating in South Africa, has grown rapidly over three years to the point where on a Sunday in May in 2004 an estimated 22 million people gathered n over 50 African nations for a simultaneous act of prayer for their nations and their continent. This year it is hoped to encompass the globe. The event is being organised in Ireland by Transformations Ireland, a group of church leaders froma variety of traditions who have been prayeing and working together to promote prayer and unity in the Church in this island.
