Bushside Independent Flute Band held their annual Christmas carol service in the Orange Hall, Edward Street, Ballymoney.

The service consisted of five bible readings.

The readings this year were all from the Old Testament, with reference and prophecies of the promised Messiah.

Mrs Elizabeth Wilson was the soloist with two modern Christmas pieces accompanied by Mrs Louise Glenn on the organ for five traditional carols.

Mr Tommy Henry spoke about the work of the Causeway Children’s Diabetic Group, of which he and his wife Heather are volunteers, a retiring offering was taken up in aid of this charity.

The Rev. John Holmes gave a very inspiring and challenging Christmas address based upon Luke 19v10.

The band would like to wish all their members, friends and supporters a very happy Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous 2017.
