Special Services & Activities

Fifth Sunday United Service (Christ Church, Carrowdore)

  • Sunday 30th July 2017, 11.00am – Holy Communion
    We’re delighted that Brian Shaw, one of our Readers in Training will be preaching at this service and following the service there will be a Shared Lunch in the Woburn Hall.
    Whilst there is no charge for the meal (cold meat, salad & desserts), we hope through your generous donations to raise funds to support Andrew Bowers and his family as they work through YWAM [Youth With A Mission] in Thailand.
    (please note that this service is Holy Communion, as there will be no 8.30am Communion service at Millisle)

Bishop’s Bible Week

  • Tuesday 29th August – Friday 1st September, 7.45pm (Shankill Parish Church, Lurgan)

    Wed 30th – “Renewed” (Romans 6)
    Thurs 31st – “Legal” (Romans 7)

Week of Prayer

  • Monday 4th September – Friday 8th September, 7.30pm-9.00pm (Woburn Hall)
    (as per last year we take this opportunity at the beginning of a ‘new season’ or academic year to bring stuff in prayer to God – beyond our normal prayer meetings, etc. In particular we can focus on those we know, our friends and family, who have yet to commit their lives to Christ. Also bringing before God those in special need through ill health or otherwise and anything else. We hope this opportunity to come together corporately will encourage us as individuals and groups to continue and develop our prayer lives throughout the year.)
