Visit to Downpatrick and Newcastle

10 August 2015

Most pleasant morning (Sunday 9 August)with the Dundrum, Newcastle and Downpatrick circuit preaching in Downpatrick and Newcastle churches. Number of reflections, first it was great to see Rev Lou settled and hear her enthusiasm for the circuit. Lovely to share with friends from other places on both occasions. Challenges are ahead for this circuit, with reduced ageing congregations where it is enough to keep the church open, and they are not alone in MCI in facing this. But aware in both places they are engaging with the issues and opportunities that their location presents. Conversations with other places in similar positions may be beneficial.
