Each Monday, Thursday and Friday, St Paulís Parish Church Hall is used as a Social Centre by Age Concern for senior citizens in the area.  A varied programme is co-ordinated by Margaret Boyce assisted by Day Care workers - Deborah Moffatt, Hilary Smyth and Erica Cromie.  The senior citizens are transported by Down Lisburn Trust buses and brought to the hall where tea/coffee and biscuits are served at 10.30am.  Following a variety of activities that include light exercises, crafts, board games, knitting and quizzes, they break for a two course lunch at 12.30pm and later at about 2.00pm for tea/coffee and biscuits.  After enjoying great fun, chat and fellowship, they leave for home at 3.30pm.
