The Christian Unity Service held recently in the McNeill Theatre, Larne Leisure, was well attended by some 80 people.

The Mayor of Larne, Cllr Maureen Morrow, took part in the service, which was led by representatives from many Christian denominations in the borough, with pupils from the four local post-primary schools reading passages from the Bible based on the theme: “Is Christ Divided?”

The readers were Aine McDonnell, St Killian’s College; Mason Kerr, Roddensvale School; Michael Wilson, Larne Grammar; and Glen Dubbelaar, Larne High. The sermon was given by Fr Aidan Kerr. Music was provided by St Cedma’s church choir, led by Archy McNeill and accompanied by flautist Roderick Bain.

The Alzheimer’s Society Prom Friendship Group gave a brief talk regarding their work and a collection taken for this cause totalled £300.

The February meeting of the Tuesday Group will be held in Larne Methodist Church Hall on Tuesday, February 18. The theme for the Tuesday Group this year has been “Reaching Out” and the February meeting will provide the opportunity for two speakers – one from Women’s Aid and the other from Good Morning Larne – to show how they are reaching out to the Vulnerable in Larne.

The morning will commence with refreshments at 10.30am and the meeting will start at 11am and finish at 12.30. All meetings are free, but a small contribution is requested at each to cover costs. All are most welcome.

On Tuesday, March 18, in the Methodist Church Hall, at 10.30 for 11am, The Very Rev. Gregory Dunstan, Dean of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Armagh, will speak on “A Shared Patrick”. It is hoped that many will come to hear this excellent speaker.
