Lucy’s Exodus Team to Slovakia

On the 8th July 2018, I set off on my trip to Slovakia with 9 others from Carrickfergus. Our bus left Belfast bus station at midnight, with our flight leaving Dublin airport at 6am. It was a long day of travelling as when we arrived in Slovakia we had a further 2-hour bus journey before we got to our accommodation for the next week. We stayed in a small church in one of the villages and our host Timea couldn’t…
Prayer Week 2018

Week of Prayer 2018

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. Acts 2:42. Just last Sunday we thought about four marks of a spirit-filled church (from Acts 2:42), which we want to continue to strive towards. Through Christ’s sacrifice, we have been brought into fellowship with God and with each other. With this in mind, it seems one of the most natural things we can do as a local fellowship is to…

Baby Massage

Hi, my name is Sandra and I was a nurse for 30 years but had to retire early in 2012 as my health had been steadily deteriorating with both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis over several years. I had been struggling to keep going but even so, it was a bit of a shock to stop work quite suddenly. I had always really enjoyed running various parenting groups and over the years had often mused about how baby massage in particular could…

Summer Update from Burkina

“But I know nothing about drilling wells, and I hate Africa” – my reaction when Mark tried to talk me into going to Burkina Faso on a volunteer team 7 years ago. That didn’t discourage him, and so in November 2011, I found myself for the first time in Burkina, drilling wells with Friends In Action (FIA). I found it to be a fantastic experience – so much so that I ended up going out for a second team just…

A note from Stephen Silverson

My name is Stephen Silverson. I grew up in Carrick Baptist Church, attending the church with my parents. I have many fond memories of the church. It was through the Sunday School, at a young age that I heard about Jesus and believed in what He did for me on the cross and accepted Him as my Saviour. At 19, I left Northern Ireland and moved over to live in London. I served at Chelsea Community Baptist Church for 7…

Sun Cream being applied

Shorts, sandals, and sunscreen

Shorts. Sandals. Sunscreen. Over the past couple of weeks, our little town has been scorched with the sun. We have enjoyed evening walks, ice cream, and maybe more importantly drying clothes outside! However, this all points to one thing. Summer is fast approaching. We cannot guarantee the sunshine will last but no doubt we are looking forward to our holidays whether that means two weeks in Florida, camping in Spain, or just getting those valuable days off work. Do you…
