This Sunday we meet in Ballyhenry at 11am for our morning service.

As Christmas approaches we will be taking time to think about Joseph's role in the Christmas story and what we can learn from this carpenter from Nazareth who became father to the Son of God. Our Praise Group will be leading the praise and and we will have a full children's provision / supervised creche / teenage Bible Class.

At 7pm we look forward to one of our own members sharing her story. Do be encouraged to join with us!

Christmas is on the way and this week we look forward to meeting in Ballyhenry at 11am and 5.30pm.

This Sunday sees us step into December here in Ballyhenry. This week we welcome Steve Gaston who will be leading our service. Steve is a candidate on the Presbyterian Church in Ireland's 'Accredited Preacher' course. We have already heard from Steve this term and look forward to him speaking on Sunday when his topic will be 'Jesus the Firstborn over all Creation'. This title comes from Colossians 1 vs 15 and sits well in that this Sunday is also the 'first Sunday in Advent' when as a congregation we start to look forward to Christmas.
