Tyrone-Derry and Donegal Action (TDDA) are hosting a residential event to explore the ‘Role of Religion’ in terms of inter-church activity and peace-building work. These residentials will be overnight from Thursday 11th – Friday 12th September and Thursday 18th – Friday 19th September. Both residential stays will be in Harvey’s Point Hotel, Donegal Town, Lough Eske, Co. Donegal. A detailed intinerary will follow however, we would expect participants to arrive on both Thursday mornings from 10am and to depart after lunch on both Fridays. There is no cost to participants. All meals are included. Twin rooms will be allocated on a shared basis however, those wishing to use a single room will be required to pay a single supplement themselves. Anyone interested in participating is asked to contact TDDA preferably by email before by 4pm on Wednesday 3rd September. To book or for more info, please contact TDDA by email:  tel: 0749173747.

Handling the Word Saturday 4th & 18th October 2014, 9.30am to 3.45pm in Leckpatrick Presbyterian Church. The course is designed for church members who wish to learn how to prepare and deliver a talk from the Bible. It would be useful for anyone who gives talks to a youth group, a Presbyterian Women meeting, a Men’s Breakfast as well as someone who might have the opportunity to preach a Sunday sermon. The course is normally a pre-requisite for the Accredited Preacher course but there is no obligation to progress to that scheme. The following topics will be covered: the Bible as the foundation, understanding and applying the Bible passage, structuring the talk and considering the hearers. A charge of £20 will be made to cover the expenses involved in running the course. Tea/coffee will be supplied but you should bring a packed lunch with you on the day.

To register please contact Rev Mark Russell by email: or by telephone: 028 7188 4033 to request a registration form. Please register by 26th September
