On Saturday 16th March we opened the doors to welcome the public to Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure.
We had four timed performances of the Story Trail throughout the day as well as a café, craft workshops from Jumping Clay and Julia’s Ceramics, a reptile exhibition from Talking Reptiles and Irish dancing.
On Sunday 17th there was a special St. Patrick themed service in the church. Ross Jonas and Chris Neilands from the Play It By Ear theatre company who led the acting all week performed again in the service and Sister Karen Webb who was one of the main organisers of the event spoke about St Patrick’s faith and character. Central Primary School choir sang 2 beautiful pieces and were fantastic.
Ven. Paul Dundas, rector of Christ Church thanked all the team involved and gave a special mention to Rev. Derek Harrington who co-ordinated the Christ Church team and was instrumental in the success of the event.
Connor’s Children’s council members would like to say a big thanks to Paul. Derek and the team from Christ Church for all the support in making Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure so successful and enjoyable to be a part of this year.
We would also like to thank our funders, Lisburn and Castlereagh Council, the Church of Ireland Priorities fund and the Church of Ireland Orphans and Children’s Society for their support which has meant we have been able to keep Patrick’s Mysterious Adventure free for everyone to come and enjoy!
