Container Ministry

WMP's Container Ministry is situated beside Lurgan High Street Methodist Church, Lurgan. It has sent over 100 containers worldwide over the last 26 years, in support of Christian mission.

The ministry began after Rev. J Yedu Bannerman from Ghana, who had served for five years as a mission partner on the Lurgan Circuit, wished to have some materials sent back to Ghana on his return home. The pr

oject is made possible by the hard work of a small, but dedicated group of volunteers under the direction of Mr William Carson. To send one container can now cost more than £3,000. All support is much appreciated.

Ken said, "There is room in the Cliff College Nigeria container to include requested hospital equipment for the new Methodist hospital at Uzakoli (former Leper colony). All go! Exciting! God is good."
