Harvest thanksgiving services were held last weekend in St Johnís Parish, Moira.  A contemporary worship service was held in the Parish Centre at 10.00am and the 11.30am service was held in the church.  The Rev John Alderdice, Methodist minister of Movilla Abbey, was the speaker at both morning services. The church was beautifully decorated for the occasion by a dedicated team of volunteers from the parish. 

The 11.30 morning service in the church was led by the Rector, the Rev Canon Roderic West.  The Rev Joanne Megarrell - Curate and Bertie Logan - Lay Reader also took part.  The organist, Mrs Irene Cunningham and the church choir led the praise.  The hymns included, Come ye thankful people come; Holy is the seed time; O worship the king; and I sing the almighty power of God.  The harvest anthems were, Room for all (Introit) and Let the whole world know.  Linda Doogan and the Praise Group led the praise at the 10.00am contemporary worship service held in the Parish Centre

The guest speaker at the evening service was the local Methodist minister, the Rev Liz Hewitt and the guest speaker at the Monday evening Harvest Praise service was the Rev Arthur Young, rector of Tullylish.  The Monday evening service was followed by a harvest supper in the Parish Centre.
