‘Fish Goes Large’ an interactive multi-media event was held in Elmwood Presbyterian Church, Ballymacash, last Saturday night. (Saturday 11th March).  The event, which was attended by about 150 young people, was organised and led by Elmwood’s Youth Worker, Stephen Auld and the Youth Fellowship group, known as FISH.  The programme included Competitions, Mime, Drama and Gunge Tank.  The praise was led by Natalie Ward - Piano and the praise band with solos beautifully sung by Mel Anderson; and the worship was led by Philip Kerr from Crown Jesus Ministries, whose “Life-Changing message included a challenge to become a Christian and give everything to God.”

Other forthcoming plans at Elmwood Presbyterian Church include ‘Connect’ events.  These are special evening services arranged for Sunday 19th March, Easter Sunday 16th April and Sunday 14th May, all at 6.30pm.  ‘Connect’ is being billed as “church with a difference” and the aim is to draw in those on the outside or at the fringes of church life in order to encourage and challenge them.

The folk at Elmwood are also looking forward to a Community Weekend at the end of May, with plans to throw open their doors to the whole Ballymacash community for a Fun Day in the church grounds on Saturday 27th May and a special community morning service on Sunday 28th May, at which it is hoped there will be many community representatives in attendance and participation by the Ballymacash Primary School choir.
