Spring issue of ‘Connor Connections’ now available

Thursday February 15th 2024

The spring issue of our diocesan magazine Connor Connections is now available free to all members of the Church of Ireland within the diocese and can be collected from your parish church.

Features include interviews with 84-year-old Kay Hutchinson, who over the past 22 years has raised an incredible £96,000 for Holy Trinity, Portrush, through her sale of second-hand items, and Carnmoney Parish Eco-Committee members George Baird and Robert Campbell who talk about the various projects that are underway.

We speak to the Rev Canon Kevin Graham DL who received an MBE in the King’s New Year Honours, and to Diocesan Development Manager Trevor Douglas who was awarded the BEM.

The Community Fridge in Ballymoney Parish is going from strength to strength – we paid a visit – while Agherton Parish has been forging great links with health providers in the area through its very successful health and wellbeing fair.

If you are interested in a volunteering opportunity, Belfast Cathedral is on the lookout for more stewards – some of those who spend a couple of hours a week in the lovely building tell us why it is so rewarding; and we hear something of the history of 17th Belfast BB Company which marks its 70th anniversary this year.

Young Charlie Smyth visited Warsaw in Poland just before Christmas, and he recalls his work at a Bible Camp for local children and his work supporting Ukrainian refugees who had sought shelter in the city.

We also look back at all the activities enjoyed by our children and youth groups; the Black Santa Sit-out; Derryvolgie Parish’s Global Made Local initiative; and the installation of new Canons in both Belfast Cathedral and Christ Church Cathedral, Lisburn.

All this and more – be sure and pick up your free copy of Connor Connections!
