Following the official opening of CMS Ireland's new Belfast
premises, the organization held a major mission conference and
celebration - mbrace - in the Armagh City Hotel on Friday 28th
September. The event was preceded by three regional mission
focus evenings in Belfast and Dublin. Delegates from most of the
countries in which CMS Ireland has partner links travelled to
Northern Ireland for the special event.
During the week leading up to the main event, the North Down
MLA, Alex Easton, hosted a CMS Conference Group at Stormont. The
group was welcomed to Stormont by Mr Jeffrey Donaldson MLA MP.
In addressing the group Mr Donaldson said that many of the
Churches represented were enduring situations of conflict and he
expressed his wish that they would find cause for hope in their
visit to Northern Ireland.
