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 Select Vestry recently agreed that we enter into a mission link with the Revd Keith Scott and his wife Lyn who will be returning to work with the Church Mission Society Ireland in the Diocese of Northern Zambia. They were partner missionaries with us some years ago when they served in Zambia for the first time.
We were delighted that Keith was able to preach in St John's at Morning Prayer on Sunday 12th June. Keith and Lyn will be going off to Zambia in the near future and we probably won't see them again for another three years or so! However, Keith and Lyn will keep us updated about their work while they are in Zambia.
Ordination of Rev Suzanne Cousins
The ordination of Rev Suzanne Cousins as priest, took place on 4 September 2016 in St Columb's Cathedral, Londonderry.
Almighty God, you have made us for yourself, and ours hearts are restless till they find rest in you: Teach us to offer ourselves to your service, that here we may have your peace, and in the world to come may see you face to face; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
