Shankill Christian Fellowship – Update

We have been greatly encouraged by the work at SCF over the past few months. In January we began the year with an outreach event, SCF Fit. Around thirty people have been attending the (eight week) event aimed at addressing physical, mental (and most importantly) spiritual health. We are thankful to those from Carrick Baptist who have come along and shared both their professional advice and their faith with those who attend on Tuesday evenings. We are really looking forward…

Emily Peru Hope Trust

First, thank you for the very generous Christmas morning collection. We plan to use this towards a three-year cycle to replace the school uniform of every child at Casa Hogar El Amor de Dios (about 60 children). Funds were provided for a Christmas present for every child there, and also at New Hope (48 children). Contributions towards Summer Camps for the children in their (current) summer holiday were added. We have moments of turbulence as we try to learn to…

Love

14th February is a day when we celebrate love. We often define love by an experience or a feeling. We tend to think more about what love is rather than what love does. I wonder how many people define love by who God is? In 1 John 4, we read, beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love, does not know…
CB:Youth

CB:Youth Update

Many of you will be aware that during January our ministry insight is CB:Youth. You can find out about CB:Youth in the January bulletin. This year during our study sessions we are giving our youth the opportunity to explore difficult life and faith questions that they might have. We hope that this will not only increase their understanding but also help as they speak about God with friends and family. We would love your help! Friendship Our young people face many…

Happy New Year

A new year is often a time for fresh starts. It’s a good time to reflect on the past year and think about aspects of our lives that need changed. Perhaps your resolution is to eat less and exercise more. Maybe it’s to spend less time on your phone and more time with your family. It is also a good time to examine your spiritual life. As we start 2019, can I encourage us all to meditate on Philippians 3:8: ‘I count everything as…

Why we love Christmas – Pamela Dickson

I have always loved Christmastime. As a child I remember the anticipation of waiting ALL night with my younger brother to go downstairs to open my presents, not getting much sleep at all! Then as David and I became parents, having 3 young children and the excitement overload that brought. Christmastime was busy. The Christmas edition of The Argos book came into the house and the children would sit for hours trying to choose what they would like, then of…

Why we love Christmas – David Dickson

I love Christmas! First, there’s the food; turkey, turkey curry, turkey sandwiches, turkey toasties.  Then there’s the music; I wish it could be Christmas every day!  Not forgetting the Christmas movies; Elf, The Grinch, It’s a Wonderful Life. The bright lights of Christmas help to shorten what would be a long and dark Northern Irish winter.  But best of all, Christmas holidays allow us to rest and spend quality time with our family and friends.  What’s not to love about…

Stefan Gerard’s Baptism

Last week we had a Baptism service and as always it was amazing to hear what God has been doing in people’s lives. Below you can watch a short interview with Stefan followed by his Baptism.
