Speakers Meeting with 'A Night of Fashion' with D Maguire followed by Epilogue in St Elizabeth's Hall this Wednesday at 8 p.m.
We had a good attendance at our February meeting. Muriel welcomed everyone, Rev. Elizabeth opened the meeting with prayer and May read the Scripture passage.
Muriel introduced the speaker, Ann Caufield who gave a very informative and interesting talk, explaining how she got involved with Mozambique having spent two weeks on a mission trip. She spoke about Melvin and Sharon Kelly’s work with Helping Hands Ministries.
Mozambique is the 7th poorest country in the world where poverty and sickness result in a very high mortality rate among very young children. Many adults live with severe disabilities and raise a family on the equivalent of £1.50 per day.
In the area where the Kelly family is working, there are now vibrant churches, schools and adult learning classes.
Many beautiful crafts, made by the local Mozambique women, were on sale.
Muriel thanked Ann and presented her with a gift of appreciation, before supper was served by Margaret, Debbie, Gillian and Nora.
The AGM followed, with all Officers and Committee unchanged:
Leader: Muriel Boyle, Deputy Leader: June Patterson, Treasurer: Averil Ferguson, Secretary: May Scott, Committee members: Carol McAree, Jean Palmer, Karen Robinson and Ethenay Wright.

Staff at Drumglass
We recently bid a very fond farewell to Peter and Kim Jones as they moved to pastures new in the Diocese of Connor. Over the next year, we will not be replacing Peter with a new Curate, which obviously changes the workload in the Parish. We’re delighted to welcome as a new part-time Intern Deacon the Rev David McComb. David will be with us over two years as part of his ministerial training.
The Vestry is very pleased that Danny Graham, who has been with us for the last three years during his placement for his Youth Work Degree, will be remaining with us for the next year as Parish Youth Worker. Danny has done much significant work during his time with us.
Please remember the whole staff team in your prayers and continue to support them in their work.
