Methodist Update – May 2012

Meetings continue on Sunday evening at 7pm in the Canon O’Donovan Centre on Clara Road.  On Sunday 6th May, being the first Sunday of the month, we will share together in Holy Communion as well as our normal ‘feast’ of worship, prayer and Bible study.  During this Easter season we continue to focus on the resurrection appearances of our Lord and this Sunday we focus in on the last few words of Matthew’s Gospel where Christ calls us to partner with him in sharing his good news with all the world.  Hope you can join us.  For further information about any of our meetings, contact Laurence Graham on 064 6631613 or <email>
