On Tuesday afternoon, the Touch Team ran our latest event – an Afternoon of Reflection. We were pleased to welcome over 60 guests, including some of our friends from Island Street in Belfast.
The afternoon began with entertainment provided by “Dad’s Army” – a quartet of gentlemen dressed in army attire, who brought back many nostalgic memories of the old days in song, with a wee bit of ” Elvis” thrown in. This was very enthusiastically received by the audience, who joined in with great gusto !
The Touch Team would like to thank everyone for coming along, and wish them every blessing as they continue to raise money for the Tracey Goodacre Trust, which aims to raise money for the Cancer centre and the MacMillan centre.
Following this, Rev. David McConaghy shared with us some reflections of his life, from his childhood days up to the present. This was accompanied by slides giving us a fascinating insight into the amazing life journey he and his family have travelled, whilst living here in N.Ireland as well as working in Africa as missionaries.
As we approach this Easter time,Rev McConaghy appropriately ended his reflections with photographs from a visit to the Holy Land. The photograph of the empty tomb and the words inscribed there “He has risen- He is not here” reinforced his words that “Jesus is alive”.
The Touch Team would like to take this opportunity to thank Rev McConaghy for the support and help he has provided over the years and also for his faithful witness here in our church family. The afternoon was rounded off with afternoon tea.
