Church leaders from different traditions tell their stories

Week of Prayer for Chirstian Unity 2014In a special event as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, church leaders from four different traditions and four corners of Belfast will come together to tell their personal stories.

The theme for this year’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is the rhetorical question put by Paul to the church in Corinth: “Is Christ Divided?” and it is against the backdrop of this question that the church leaders will speak.

The four are:

Rev Dr Norman Hamilton: Former Moderator and Minister of Ballysillan Presbyterian (North Belfast)
Father Ciaran Dallat: Assistant Priest in St. Peter’s Catholic Cathedral (West Belfast)
Rev. Dr. Heather Morris: President of the Methodist Church in Ireland and Director of Ministry at Edgehill Theological College (South Belfast).

This special event takes place in South Belfast Methodist Church, Lisburn Road, on Monday January 27, starting at 7.30pm, and will be chaired by John Brewer of Queen’s University, Belfast.

On Thursday January 30 Brighton bomber Pat Magee and Jo Berry, whose father was killed in the blast, will take part in Listening to you Enemies, another event organised as part of the Four Corners Festival (

This will be chaired by Rev Dr Lesley Carrol, Fortwilliam and Macrory Presbyterian Church, and takes place in Skianos, Newtownards Road, Belfast, at 7.30pm.
