Revival!

News has reached me just this morning that an astounding 1200 people turned up at an 1859 Revival themed church service in Connor at the weekend - the building was bursting at the seams and no room anywhere for car parking. I know that some of you readers are based in mid-Antrim - I'd appreciate more detail form any of you!

As I've blogged before, Connor was a highly significant location back in 1859. Great news!

More info about the local events here - there are many more happening Provincewide throughout the year.

Hi Mark- It was a great night in Connor last Sunday night, with the Moderator Rev. Dr. Patton giving a great local account of the Revival-he clearly is an authority on the subject I was very impressed with his talk/sermon. Former Moderator Rev. Dr McCaughey followed this with an excellent sermon. The meeting house was filled to capacity-800- with not anyspace left in any pews, and with 400 people watching and taking part in Worship in the church hall via a video link. Every chair that the church possessed was occupied, including the minister's room and session room furniture!!! You should be able to hear the majority of the service on www.ballymenapresbytery.org
