MEMBERS of the Larne-based Tuesday Group have enjoyed a visit to the Corrymeela Centre in Ballycastle.

They were welcomed by Rev Dr Inderjit Bhogal and following a tea and coffee break, were taken on a tour of the centre.

Corrymeela was set up by Rev Ray Davies in 1965 to help heal the divisions in Northern Irish society. Since then it has grown into an international centre for peace and reconciliation.

The centre is modern complex of buildings situated on one of the most beautiful sites on the North Antrim Coast.

The art works, gardens and scenery complement the work of the Corrymeela community.

After lunch the Tuesday Group retired to the building known as The Cree (Gaelic for heart), where Dt Bhogal outlined the ethos behind the work of the centre, its aims and objectives, pointing out that everyone can be part of this work. Prayers and hymn singing concluded this part of the visit.

Everyone agreed that the visit was most enjoyable and extremely worthwhile.

The Tuesday Group is an interfaith group that meets every thrd Tuesday of the month from September to June from 10.30am to 12 noon. It meets in Drumalis from September to December and in Larne Methodist Church from February to June. The venues may be subject to change. New members are very welcome.
