    Presentation of Cheque

    We will long remember the Concert by the the Band of the Royal Marines, Scotland on 15th May 2017. It was amazing to see the church full (almost to overflowing), the queue going from the church gates, around the corner, right up Castleton Avenue and disappearing into the distance!

    We were honoured that evening to be joined by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Fionnuala Jay O’Boyle; Lord Mayor of Belfast, Alderman Brian Kingston and Senior Naval Officer NI, Commander John Gray. Thank you so much to everyone who helped in any way to make the concert such a success. A special thanks of course goes to the excellent Band of the Royal Marines, Scotland who gave us a memorable concert. The last piece they played was ‘We’re no Awa tae Bide Awa’ to which there can only be one reply – ‘Haste ye Back’!

    The Seafaring Charities chosen to be supported that evening were the Sea Cadets and the Mission to Seafarers, the total raised being £2,400. We were delighted to be able to present cheques for £1,200 to the charities representatives, Lieutenant Commander Cliff Burns and Rev Colin Hall Thompson.

    Joint Easter Services

    It has been great to join again with our neighbours in Newington and Seaview Presbyterian Churches for our joint services during the Easter season. Our joint Palm Sunday service was held in Alexandra, with the Good Friday service being in Newington and the Easter Sunday evening service held in Seaview. These a valuable times spent together. We look forward to our series of joint Advent services at the end of the year.
