God's Temple: Freedom

God's Church Building Plan

The Temple, in the Bible, has many meanings. (2 Chronicles 2:6; John 2:20-21; Ephesians 2:21; 1 Peter 2.4-6) It refers to several buildings built at Jerusalem, then to the body of Jesus of Nazareth, then to the People of God. Our series in September will focus on God's people as his Temple. How does God build us into his spiritual house? What problems have we to overcome as his people? How are we made useful in his temple? What is the purpose God gives us as his servants?

During September worship in St Andrew's and St Ignatius' church buildings we will seek to Build God's Temple! This week we look at:

4. FREEDOM to SERVE in God's Temple 25th SEPTEMBER

When we have discovered God's gifts and honed them, we then find freedom in serving. God gives us great joy with the privilege of both using his gifts to help others, and to build the church so as to glorify Him. (Galatians 5.13-18)

Funeral Service

On Tuesday 16th August the Funeral Service for Mrs Laurie Lowry took place at Carryduff. Mrs Lowry is the mother of the rector and widow of the Rev Canon Harold Lowry, formerly rector of Lambeg. The service in Carryduff was followed by refreshments in the hall, and then burial at Lambeg Parish Church. We thank Bishop Harold Miller for conducting the service here and Bishop Alan Abernethy for performing the committal. Mrs Lowry was spoken of with great warmth by Bishop Harold during his address. She died peacefully on Saturday in her home for the last few years, Hollygate Lodge.

We thank parishioners in Killaney and Carryduff for both their expressions of support and their practical help to Stephen and the extended family during this time.
