With the academic year winding down and thoughts of summer sunshine to the fore, Christ Church Strabane have organised an array of activities and events for everyone to get involved in.
Sunday 24th June will see the Parish hold its annual Children’s Day and Prizegiving Service at 11.30 am. The theme for the service will be ‘You’ve got a friend in me’ with the guest speaker being Miss Claire Henderson from Omagh. There promises to be a “lorra lorra” laughs as the children bring to life a popular Saturday night TV show in their presentation on the theme of friendship. This will be an enjoyable family friendly service with a music group – comprised of young people from the Parish – also helping to lead worship. Everyone is most welcome to come along.
From Tuesday 26th June through to Thursday 28th June, a holiday Bible Club will be held in the Bowling Green premises from 6.30pm to 8.00 pm daily. This is open to children from right across the community of primary school age upwards, and the theme is ‘Superheroes’. With stories, games, crafts and much more, it’s shaping up to be a fun-filled time. Anyone with questions can get in contact via the Parish’s Facebook page.
Friday 29th June will see the Parish host its Annual Garden Fete in the grounds of the Rectory, Newtown Street, Strabane from 6.00pm to 9.00 pm. With scrumptious home-baked goods and teas on offer, a bouncy castle, BBQ and games, there will be something for all the family to enjoy. Everyone welcome.
And if anyone still has energy left in reserve, the Parish will be heading to Benone and Downhill for a ‘Beach Picnic’ after morning worship on Sunday 1 July (weather permitting) and are holding a Sponsored Walk on Thursday 5 July beginning at 7 pm from the Presbyterian Church.
