Clergy in Connor Diocese have had the opportunity to avail of valuable resource ideas at a series of three archdeaconry meetings running during October.
Two of the meetings have already taken place, with Dalriada Archdeaconry getting together on Tuesday October 6 in Holy Trinity Parish Centre, Ballycastle, and Belfast Archdeaconry meeting on Thursday October 15 in St Patrick’s, Jordanstown.
The third meeting, for clergy in parishes in Connor Archdeaconry, takes place on Tuesday October 20 in All Saints’ Parish Centre, Antrim.
At the meetings, Canon Peter McDowell, diocesan liturgical officer, gives a presentation of liturgical resources to help enrich worship from the season of All Saints to Advent, Christmas and Epiphany.
Jill Hamilton, Connor Children’s Project Officer, outlines some Messy Church themes and gives a demonstration of imaginative games, crafts and activities. These activities have proved to be great fun over the first two meetings, with clergy getting stuck into making donkey faces in Ballycastle, and some artistic edible models of Mary in Jordanstown!
As part of this series of roadshows, parishes are also being encouraged to share resources. Download a collection of liturgical resources. These are also available in the Resources for Clergy section of this website.
