Notes June/July 2018

It has been quite a hectic period for the Parish with so much happening, and now we look forward to quieter times for clergy, choir, Sunday School teachers, organisation leaders and all who are so involved in the busy parochial life of Derryloran!

SUMMER TIMES: Please note that during June, July and August our morning services will be at 9am (as usual) and 11am (time change), with no evening services over that period. Please endeavour to support our services throughout the summer months!

EASTER VESTRY: At the annual meeting Vestry the Church Wardens were appointed for the ensuing year – Trevor Rollins (Rector’s) and Norman Bennett (Peoples’), and we wish them well in their roles. A full report will follow in the next issue of our Parish Magazine.

DEDICATION SERVICE: A special service was on 29th April to thank Almighty God for the various gifts to and works completed in our beautiful church. These include:- the new lighting and electrical upgrading throughout the church, the chandelier in the porch in memory of the late Jim and Winnie Wylie, new radio microphones in memory of Bertie and Norah McCoy, the pew cushioning – the gift of the Ladies’ Catering Team and a monetary gift from Pat Armstrong in memory of her late husband, Bill, to be used in due course for some church requirement.

A most enjoyable soup lunch was held in the Parish Hall following the service – raising almost £900. The Rector received a gift from the Select Vestry to mark the 20th Anniversary of his Institution to Derryloran. We are grateful to all who made it an occasion to remember!

MOTHERS’ UNION: Members enjoyed the Annual Dinner in the Royal Hotel and the Diocesan Service in the Cathedral in May, and are currently looking forward to their Outing to Belfast Castle and some customary retail therapy!

BUDAPEST: Our travel group had a most enjoyable visit to Hungary making full use of 2 days on the City Bus Tours and a cruise on the Danube during their 4 night stay. There were several highlights, with great weather, a fine hotel and a variety of dining experiences in that wonderful city..

BUS PASS EXPLORERS: are also on the road with visits planned for the summer being announced in church.

CHRISTIAN AID: Thanks to all our collectors and contributors to the recent House-to-house collection in Cookstown and District – again a very successful effort!

CHILDRENS’ DAY will be observed on Sunday 3rd June with our Sunday School Awards being distributed at the 11am Service. We record our gratitude to the Superintendent, William Stewart and his team of teachers for yet another year of faithful service..

ORANGE PARADE: Once again it is our turn to host the annual Service and welcome sister and brethren of Cookstown District to Derryloran for the morning service at 11am

SAINTS’ DAYS will be celebrated in church on week-days as usual at 10.30am followed by refreshments as follows:-

  • 11th June – St Barnabas;
  • 29th June– St Peter;
  • 3rd July – St Thomas

Have a restful and enjoyable summer!
