Everyone is invited to an E3 Ballymena Coffee Morning organised by Scripture Union. This is a fundraising event to support the work of the E3 Schools Project in the town and surrounding area.
It will take place on Saturday 22nd October 2016 in Ballymena Baptist Church, 18-22 Mount Street, Ballymena BT43 6BW from 10.30am-12.30pm.
Talking about the benefits of Scripture Union’s E3 Schools initiative, the organisation’s website states,
‘Whilst more and more young people today have little or no connection with church, all of them go to school. Schools are places of learning and influence. Centres of our communities. Open to the curiosity, questioning and honesty of the children and young people who fill their corridors and classrooms. Mission fields on our doorsteps. Communities of people who need our prayers.
As God’s people together, it is our privilege and responsibility to ‘tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power and the wonders he has done.’ Psalm 78:4
The E3 Schools project is a model of delivering schools ministry at localised level by dividing Northern Ireland into districts and employing schools workers in each area. Backed up by local volunteers and support teams, and working alongside local churches.
All E3 Projects should be completely financed by donations from local churches, groups and individuals. In order to ensure long term financial security for the project we aim to raise £30,000 each year.’
Scripture Union NI’s E3 Ballymena Coffee Morning on 22nd October at Ballymena Baptist is to help raise funds for their E3 Schools Project in the area.
Encouraging as many people as possible to attend the E3 Ballymena Coffee Morning, Rachel Sheppard and Joel Hutchinson, the E3 Scripture Union worker’s for Ballymena, said,
“Please come along and support the local schools ministry of Scripture Union’s E3 Project. There will be lots of delicious treats, a good cup of coffee and an opportunity to find out a bit more of what is going on in our local schools.”
