St John's Parish Church is situated at 'The Rock' on the South side of Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland. A parish in the Diocese of Dromore, of the Church of Ireland.
The sun shone in Newcastle on Saturday 8 July and once again we had great support for our annual Summer Extravaganza. Our thanks to everyone who came along to make it such a success - we do hope you enjoyed yourselves. Thanks also to Jazz Jam for providing the musical entertainment, the Fund Raising Group for organising the event, everyone who helped to set up and prepare the Hall and stalls, and those who looked after the stalls on the day. Particular thanks to all who helped with the catering. The event has contributed over £1850 to church funds.
