The day’s activities, which took place in glorious sunshine, were organised by Lisburn City Centre Churches. 

Members of local congregations met after their morning services to share in fellowship and witness as they enjoyed a picnic together followed by prayers linked to the Global Day of Prayer held in a number of other venues throughout Northern Ireland and in many countries worldwide.
