Two Connor churches will play a role in this year’s 4 Corners Festival Belfast which runs from January 28 until February 7.
The 4 Corners Festival seeks to inspire people from across the city to transform it for the peace and prosperity of all. It consists of innovative events designed to entice people out of their own ‘corners’ of the city and into new places where they will encounter new perspectives, new ideas, and new friends.
This year’s festival takes on the theme of ‘The Art of Listening’. A full programme is available on the 4 Corners Festival website.
St George’s Parish Church is involved on January 30 when it is the starting point on a Festival Churches’ Walk. Meeting at St George’s in High Street at 2.30pm, the walk includes First Belfast Presbyterian Church in Rosemary Street (Non-Subscribing Presbyterian), St Mary’s, Chapel Lane (Roman Catholic) and Sandy Row Methodist Church.
Walkers will be welcomed at each church by the Minister or a parishioner who will speak about the life and ministry of that congregation for around 20 minutes, and so including walking time, the event should last about two and a half hours.
St Nicholas Parish Church in Lisburn Road is the location for an event to end the festival on Sunday February 7 at 7pm. Here, festival visionaries will share their dreams about how the festival moves into the future. Expect poetry and songs and the winner of the School’s Art Competition.
