Christian Aid Week - 13th to 19th May

First Lisburn Presbyterian ChurchA short Service of Dedication will be held in the Boyd Room - First Lisburn Presbyterian Church tonight (Friday 11th May) at 7.00 pm for those interested in the work of Christian Aid and especially those who will be collecting during Christian Aid Week on Sunday 13th to Saturday 19th May.

During the meeting, Mr Periyasamy Muthulintam, Director of the Institute of Social Development in Sri Lanka, will speak about his programmes to improve the lives of the workers on the tea plantations. The meeting will be informal and short, finishing around 8.00 pm so that folk will be able to continue with their usual Friday evening plans.

The Christian Aid street collection in the centre of Lisburn is next Tuesday 15th May and regional organizers would be grateful for help with that. Volunteers are vital to the work of Christian Aid, so if anyone can spare an hour next Tuesday, please call Hazel McCall on Lisburn 92601777.
