The Minister of Ballee, The Rev. Joseph Andrews, said: “We are looking forward to our Anniversary weekend. For 40 years the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been proclaimed in Ballee and many people have come to faith in Jesus as Saviour. We are extremely grateful to all those people who, over the past forty years, have been a part of Ballee congregation at the different stages in its history. As we offer to Almighty God our thanks and praise for his blessing on our congregation over that time, we look forward with excited anticipation to what plans he has for us in the future. In particular we are excited about our special week of Gospel outreach in September when we plan to present the Gospel to people of all ages. As Ballee Presbyterian Church celebrate forty years, it will not be a case of looking back to the past, but rather ‘Forty – looking forward’. ”
