The Parish of Faughanvale is hosting a 'Blue Christmas' event in Eglinton for those who struggle during the festive season. This is a quiet, reflective time for anybody for whom the season is a challenging one – a time to acknowledge loss of any kind, to bring our cares to God, a time to seek peace, a time of hope. Those affected by the recent flooding are particularly welcome.
St Canice's Church in Eglinton was badly affected by August's flooding and has been closed since. This means that this year's 'Blue Christmas' is taking place n Eglinton Primary School. While it is hosted by St Canice’s Church of Ireland, it is intended for everyone. Come as you are.
