IMMERSE - The Bible Reading Experience: On Sunday 26th June Richard McChesney was invited to our Sunday Service to tell us about an attractive way we can use for reading the Bible. It is called "IMMERSE", a printing of the Bible in six books, rather than sixty-six. Each volume has a theme and contains those books belonging to that theme. The content is the same as the Bible we know, but it reads like a conventional book, not using the division into verses and short chapters. Full details about IMMERSE can be found on their website www.immersebible.com The theme that we intend to use in Ballywillan, beginning in the Autumn, is "Poets". It will include Songs (Psalms, Lamentations, Song of Songs) and the Wisdom Writings (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Job). We wish to encourage as many as possible to read the Bible in this slightly different way, either individually or as part of a group Book Club. Because it will take time to obtain copies of the book, we are asking you, if you wish to order the volume "Poets" for yourself and friends, to add your name to the list please telephone the Church Office on70822612 or by e-mail to the office address: [email protected].

"COME DINE WITH ME": will take place on the 3rd Sunday of each month. The next lunch will take place NEXT Sunday 21st August in the Royal Court Hotel. Please contact the Church Office if you wish to attend.


PRAYER GROUP - Our congregational prayer time takes place on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 7.30pm. Meetings are held in The Frazer Room. The group will next meet on Wednesday 24th August.An Elders Prayer Meeting takes place at 7.00pm on the last Sunday of each month.
