2nd Ballyeaston was the place to be on Saturday 19th March when over 100 people came along to the Daffodil Lunch in the Brann Hall. Delicious soup, sandwiches, tray bakes, tea and coffee were served from noon to 2pm with the proceeds (over £1100) going to Church funds and Marie Curie Cancer Care. Daffodils decorated the Hall and the tables, and reflected the Spring sunshine of the day.
Thanks to all who supported the event in any way, and to the many helpers who made the day such a success.

A Musical Celebration of Harvest -
Harvest in 2nd Ballyeaston began on Saturday evening 17th October, when and members of the congregation and visitors enjoyed readings and music associated with the season in the beautiful surrounding of the Church, decorated for Harvest Thanksgiving.

Tanya Laird, the vocal soloist was accompanied by Janine Kinnear, and Sam Brodison was the cornet soloist. Ballyclare Victoria Flute played a medley of favourite pieces and the evening finished with supper in the Brann Hall. Not only was the event an enjoyable reflection on the meaning of harvest but it raised £1460 for the Church Development Appeal.

He said to them, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.  Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.’  
And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

  BBQ15_1 Sunday 21st June marked our Children's Day, when the entire service, other than the Minister's talk, was conducted with the assistance of our young people. Everyone in the Sunday School had a part to play and it was enriching to see how willingly they played their roles.

The atmosphere was continued afterwards when the annual barbecue was held in the church grounds and halls. As often happens there was a shower of rain but that didn't spoil the fellowship!
