The theme for this year’s service focused on St John’s Gospel chapter four, which is the encounter of Jesus with the Samaritan woman at the well.

Readings, prayers and an address based on this theme were given by Rev Fiona Forbes, minister of Cairncastle Presbyterian Church

A special part of the service was provided by pupils, representing the post-primary schools in Larne borough, who read passages from St John’s Gospel.
