We are asking all Laser Groups to take an evening to fill in the questionnaires and return these by 1st March. Electronic copies will be sent to leaders and hard copies will be available from the welcome desk.

Use of the Kitchen: The kitchen being used as a “social” area is a sensitive issue and we don’t want to be spoil-sports when (so many) people feel comfortable using the kitchen casually, but the fact remains that a lot of food is produced there and high standards of hygiene must be maintained.
The new facilities will introduce new habits on this issue, but until then if we could encourage you to use the Minor Hall for snacking between services.
Non-kitchen items e.g. Bibles, hymn books, notes, bundles of Invitations, boxes of pencils etc., which are left on kitchen work-tops will be removed to a box, behind the Information Desk, for their owners to claim.
ASHA. It is planned to take a team from Ballymena Presbytery area to India, to work alongside ASHA in the slums in Delhi, in October 2018. The team will carry out building work and educational and outreach activities among the children and women. The cost will be £1000 per person.
