Flute Band Church at St Jude’s Parish, Muckamore, has appointed Ryan Mairs to the new post of Outreach Worker.
Ryan will be attending parades over the summer, reaching out to the men and women in the marching band community.
Ryan lives in Antrim, where he was born and raised. Introducing himself in a post on the Flute Band Church Facebook page, Ryan wrote: “I have been involved within the marching band fraternity for many years, having been a member of several bands throughout the province.
“The aim of my role is to reach out to the men and women of the marching band world wherever they’re at and endeavour to create a safe environment whereby they can explore what it might mean to have a relationship with Christ.
“This is a new challenge for me but given my affection for those involved in marching bands it’s a challenge I’m really looking forward to. I plan to attend as many parades etc as I possibly can, so if you see me about please say ‘hi’ or if anyone wants to contact me here please feel free to do so.”
