Easter Mission, Kilmore and Crossgar
13 Apr 2019 — 21 Apr 2019
During Holy Week, Kilmore Church will host Compassion, a series of events reaching out into the communities of Kilmore and Crossgar with the Gospel message. All events are free and a warm welcome is extended to everyone.
At 7.00 pm on Palm Sunday at Christ Church Kilmore with the Kerygma choir leading worship. This will be Kerygma’s last public engagement before heading off to London in June for a series of concerts in the capital.
One of the highlights of the Holy Week programme will be a Pop–up Café in the Old Post Office, Kilmore (above right). It will be open between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm Monday to Friday and serving tea, real coffee from ‘Drop Hopper’, scones and jam. All free!
The Café will also host a children’s story time at 10.30 am each day. Parents can join their children in hearing the Easter story told over five days with a different craft activity each time.
At 7.00 pm on Wednesday of Holy Week there will be a healing service in Christ Church Kilmore. We welcome all who may be seeking prayer for themselves or for friends or family.
At 7.00 pm on Thursday of Holy Week the venue moves to Inch Parish Church for a Maundy Thursday Holy Communion service.
At 7.00 pm on Good Friday the venue moves back to Christ Church Kilmore for a quiet contemplative service centred on the Cross.
At 7.00 pm on Easter Saturday there is another Gospel Concert in Christ Church Kilmore when David Kelly will be taking on the role of Johnny Cash and telling the life and faith story of this musical icon.
The week of mission ends with a dawn service at Inch Abbey on Easter Sunday morning at 6.15 am followed by bacon butties in Inch Parish Church Hall. This service makes a wonderful start to Easter Day, and has been running for several years with strong representation from all faith traditions.
