Passing of Rev Trevor Williamson

It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Rev Trevor Williamson last Sunday. Trevor had been often with us at Inishowen Four Churches covering our services and we were always glad to have him.

We remember his wife Pamela and his daughter Alessandra & her husband William and the wider family circle in our prayers as they travel through the difficult journey of grief.

Farewell from Rev. Alison and Ronan Gallagher
On 5th July we head to Killarney where I will take up a new appointment. Because of Covid restrictions we are unlikely to have a chance to say goodbye to many folk. Thank you for the friendship and support we received over the past 8 years, for all the lovely opportunities to share in ecumenical events as the Body of Christ together, and for your generosity and support to help the Methodist folk realise the vision for the new Hall in Moville. Praying God’s blessings on each one of you. In Christ, Alison

A warm welcome to Rev Drew Abernethy who is conducting the service today.

The Presbyterian Church in Ireland encouraged ministers to take the 7th-13th June, the week that would usually be assigned for the General Assembly, as a week for being refreshed. I was privileged that the elders of all four congregations gave me the wonderful opportunity to enjoy that time and the conference that PCI had organised. You can read more about it below directly from the PCI website.PCI encouraged ministers to take this Sunday off normal preaching duties and have provided a service recorded by the Moderator for ministers to use but because of the limited time I have spent in the pulpit due to COVID-19, I will be preaching tomorrow in Moville at 10:30am and Greenbank at 12 noon. The Rev. Drew Abernethy will be leading and preaching in Carndonagh at 10:30am and Malin at 12 noon. We look forward to seeing you then.The Moderator’s service will be available later in the day on Facebook and via our YouTube channel. Philip.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR RETURNING TO IN-PERSON WORSHIP SUNDAY 16th MAY 2021

This Sunday, 16th May, will mark the return to in-person at church worship services! Covid-19 protocols are still in place so please make sure to bring a face mask, sanitise your hands and maintain social distance. Despite all that, we are really looking forward to being able to gather together again for the first time in months and I’m really looking forward to my first services in church as your minister.

It’s going to be different being back, it’s going to take some time to get back into the habit of getting up and getting out and coming to church rather than sitting looking at a screen. Because of that here are some things that will help you as you get ready to come back to church:

~ Get up, get ready and make sure you come, we would really love to see you!

~ Pray to prepare – take some time before church to pray and begin to prepare your heart for coming and hearing from God.

~ Bring your Bible – because of COVID-19 protocols we would encourage you to bring your own Bible with you and maybe even have this Sunday be the start of a new pattern of taking notes from the kid’s talk and sermon.

~ Reflect after – read the passage when you get home again, look over your notes, and ask yourself some questions: was there anything that struck you? Anything that challenged you? What did this passage show you of Jesus? How have you been called to respond to God’s Word?

Our services will be at the usual times: 10:30am Moville, 12 noon Greenbank & 10:30am Carndonagh, 12 noon Malin.

I will be taking the services in Moville and Greenbank and Rev. Drew Abernethy will cover Carndonagh and Malin. God bless and see you Sunday!

We do understand that some people may still feel uncomfortable and too vulnerable to come to in-person worship and though we want to encourage you we don’t want to pressurise you, as such Sunday services will be uploaded to Facebook and our YouTube channel every two weeks and the Midweek Moments/Midweek Bible Studies will continue every week. We do hope that they will help you until you feel able to return.

Best and blessings,

Rev. Philip
