Presbyterian Women Annual Meeting and Evening Celebration
The Presbyterian Women Annual Meeting and Evening Celebration will take place on Thursday, 4th May 2017. Presbyterian Women (PW) is a women’s ministry within the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. This annual event will attract around 1,500 to 1,600 women from all over Ireland. They will come together in the Assembly Buildings, Belfast to worship and hear from God’s Word.
PCI’s Women’s Ministry and PW Development Officer, Pauline Kennedy, is looking forward to the event & said that all women are welcome to attend. Both the annual meeting and evening celebration take place on Thursday 4th May. The annual meeting starts at 2:00pm and the Evening Celebration at 7:30pm. The events are free and there is no need to register.
“As we come together to worship and celebrate all that the Lord is doing throughout His church, we look forward to hearing what He has to say to us through His Word as we focus our hearts on this year’s theme, Grow and Bear Fruit. This is taken from Colossians 1:10 ‘…bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”
“Our guest speaker will be Nicola Clarke who is the Youth Worker in Orangefield Presbyterian Church. Nicola also serves on the Board of The Big House. She is a Professional Practice Tutor for students studying Youth and Community Work at the Centre for Youth Ministry Ireland,” Pauline Kennedy explained.
