Local endeavourers invited to Irish Convention

Christian Endeavourers, and others, will be delighted to hear that preparations, which commenced more than a year ago, are moving to fruition for the 98th Irish National Christian Endeavour Convention to be held on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd September in Second Broughshane Presbyterian Church, near Ballymena. Delegates from every CE Union in Ireland, including the Ballymena & Coleraine Union, as well as representatives from every Society within this Union together any from within this area who are Personal Members of CE, have been invited.

The Convention will be well worth attending with events organised for all the family from the Seniors and Comrades right down to the youngest Juniors.

Young People/Young Adults will have their own fun and workshops while Juniors will be participating in activities organised by, “Coaching for Christ”. Seniors/Comrades will have their event too but everyone will come together for the evening Rallies when the Revd. Gary Glasgow will expand on the very topical theme, “Train, Run, Win”.

During the Rally on the Saturday evening, Mrs. Gwen Carson, Ballyclare will be installed as President of the Irish Christian Endeavour Union, is succession to Gillian Thompson from Co. Down but formerly a Leader in both Carrickfergus and Letterbreen [near Enniskillen] Methodist Societies. Mrs. Carson, a former Irish Union Junior Convenor, was for many years a faithful Leader of Dunluce Presbyterian Juniors. Her husband, the Revd. Stephen Carson, the current Irish Union Personal Members’ Convenor, was for many years Minister in Dunluce.

The main Speaker, the Revd. Gary Glasgow, is Minister of Gardenmore Presbyterian Church in Larne. Further information may be obtained from: conventioninformation@gmail.com
