More than 180 people attended the Bishop of Connor’s first Lenten Talk for 2013, held in Dunluce Parish Centre, Bushmills, on February 12.

Bishop Alan Abernethy’s topic for this Lent series is the Ministry of Healing, and the Bishop looked at contrasting attitudes within the church to this ministry and highlighted some Biblical reflections, looked at healing and the Kingdom of God, suggested some ways we can seek help in this area, and shared his own thoughts on the Ministry of Healing.

There was time for refreshment and fellowship as members of different parishes in the north of the diocese enjoyed this opportunity to get together. The Good Book Shop stall proved as popular as ever.

Bishop Alan’s Lent series continues with a talk on Wednesday February 20 in Jordanstown Parish Centre, and a third session on Monday February 25 in Christ Church, Lisburn (Church).

The focus then turns to worship and Bishop Alan will lead Lent services on Tuesday March 5 in St John the Baptist, Bushmills; Monday March 11 in St Patrick, Jordanstown; and Tuesday March 19 in Christ Church, Lisburn.

All talks and services begin at 7.30pm. A booking form can be downloaded here.

Looking like they are having a good time are Robert and Bessie Marshall.
