A video produced by the Connor Diocesan Development Team was shown during the evening session of Diocesan Synod in Carrickfergus on September 28.
Entitled Parishes connecting with communities, the film showed how three Connor parishes are doing very different – and innovative – things to connect with the communities they serve.
Featured parishes were St Jude’s, Muckamore, which among other things organises a festival during the week of the annual Eleventh Night Bonfire; Ballymoney Parish which has refurbished its old Schoolhouse and now runs a monthly contemporary worship there; and St Aidan’s in Sandy Row which runs a thriving charity shop and a vibrant Messy Church.
The full video can now be viewed on the Diocese of Connor YouTube channel.
Thanks to all those who agreed to be interviewed or filmed.
