All Saints’ Church, Belfast, launched its brand new evening service, UniChurch Belfast, on Sunday September 23.
Nearly 150 people, from many nationalities and backgrounds, gathered together to eat, chat, sing, hear from God’s word and celebrate the start of the relaunched and renamed evening service.
UniChurch Belfast came about as a Gospel initiative of All Saints’ as part of the congregation’s strategy to reach new people with the gospel of Jesus.
The launch on Sunday began as it will continue – a free dinner, cooked by a tireless and servant-hearted dinner team made up of members of the morning congregation, where church members, students both international and local, and anyone else can gather for great food and great craic.
The Church service started after dinner, with a renewed focus on music and a continued commitment to the exposition of God’s Word. During the week the church gathers in small groups all over Belfast to study the bible and share their lives with each other.
The purpose is simple: to see lives transformed through Jesus Christ to the glory of God.
