Excitement is mounting as The Event, the first youth diocesan youth evening organised by the new Connor Youth Council, draws near.
The Parish Halls at St Patrick’s, Ballymena, will be bursting with young people from right across Connor Diocese on the evening of March 29.
There will be music by the Mark Ferguson Band, interviews with local celebrities and plenty of goodies to enjoy, including oodles of pizza and a chocolate fountain.
The Event is open to all young people aged 11 and over, and gets underway at 7pm. The Rev Simon Genoe, Vicar at Lisburn Cathedral, will share on the theme of Following Jesus/Being a Disciple.
The Rev Peter Ferguson, who is chairing ‘Engage,’ Connor’s new Youth Council, said a great evening was planned. “Above all, we want to grow in our sense of God’s family in Connor and what God is calling us to at this time,” Peter said. “We will enjoy fellowship, worship, pray and read God’s Word together.”
The Event is one of a number of activities planned by Engage. Other events to look forward to include the annual Summer Madness in Glenarm, a youth weekend at Castlewellan Castle, Co Down from September 5–7, a day at St Jude’s Muckamore on October 4 entitled ‘Reveal’ looking at how God can be real in our lives, and a Christmas special event on Saturday December 14.
