On Sunday our Minister was presented with this original piece of art as a gift from the artist, Walter Murphy, Jr. Rev Mike has decided that rather than hang in his office, this wonderful gift will hang in our chapel.
On Friday 5th October 2018 our minister was invited as guest preacher for the Harvest service at Holy Trinity Church of Ireland, Rathkeale, Co. Limerick. The service was for the congregations of the Rathkeale and Kilnaughtin Union of Parishes. The service was led by the Priest in Charge of the parish, The Rev. Canon Prof. Patrick Comerford who had invited Mike to preach.

On Sunday, the 2nd of July, we held our second outdoor service, to celebrate the recent spell of glorious weather and remind us that worship is not confined to a building. Extensive work was needed to prepare the area.
The area pictured used to be many years ago the ministers office and remnants the old fireplace can be still seen! It was in our church and in the spot pictured, that the Roman Catholic priest, Fr Matthew, OFM Cap, chose to sign the Temperance Movement into being.
