Serving God and the Community
The coffee drop-in is a new initiative that has been running since May. The concept is to open up the church halls on a Tuesday morning and invite people in for a cup of tea or coffee and a scone. We have been so encouraged to have people coming through the door who have no other contact with the church. Some weeks are busier than others but we have already acquired a few regulars and have made a host of new contacts with people around the town.
If you would like to get involved there are lots of ways you can do so. If you know people in your neighbourhood who are lonely why don’t you invite them along, or even better, bring them along with you some Tuesday? If you like to bake, we would be delighted if you would be able to supply scones or pancakes. If you are free on Tuesday mornings you can sign up to be a part of the team. There is no specific level of commitment required - you can do as many or as few weeks as you like. If Tuesdays don’t suit you can also sign-up to partner with us in prayer.
New Row's CARE team are a group of volunteers who seek to meet the physical needs of those in our congregation who are struggling through a particular point in their lives whether caused by grief, illness or other circumstances.
The United Appeal for Mission is at the very heart of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. Every aspect of the Church's mission depends to some extent on United Appeal. It supports projects, programmes and staff at home and overseas. It helps congregations and individuals to build God’s Kingdom through youth and children’s ministry, social action and the training of leaders, for example.
