In readiness for its 150th anniversary celebrations next year, Railway Street Presbyterian Church threw wide the doors to its recently refurbished church sanctuary at the Summer Fair on Saturday 30th May. Leaflets were on hand to explain the significance and origin of the beautiful stained glass windows and artefacts in brass and stone. The Fund-Raising team were delighted that the Summer Fair gave an opportunity of sharing the beauty, comfort and sanctity of the building with the wider Lisburn public.
The Summer Fair, in aid of the refurbishment scheme, included the sale of antiques and collectables, plants, hanging baskets, home produce, jewellery, greetings cards, and recent best-seller paperbacks, as well as tea, coffee and lunches. In addition to car washing, there were electronic games, which provided fun and entertainment for young and not-so-young!
