Buckna Presbyterian Church

Announcements, 01.11.20

Below are the announcements from our service this weekend.

Wednesday Prayer Gathering

We are meeting to pray this Wednesday evening at 8pm in the Church Hall. I would encourage you to join us as we pray for our church family and also our island and world at this time. Alan Montgomery will be leading the prayer time this week.

Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Appeal

The Christmas Shoebox Appeal is still going ahead this year. The date for you to bring your shoeboxes to Buckna is Sunday 8th November. They’ll be put directly into cars here at the meetinghouse and the church hall. There is a £5 donation required to cover transportation and this can be paid by cheque or online. Please do not pay this by cash. If you require more information, please contact Hilary Alexander.

Ongoing Eldership Election

Voting papers have been posted to all communicant members and should be returned using the stamped addressed envelope provided. The closing date for returning voting papers is Monday 9th November. Any voting papers received after this date will not be valid.


Although organisations cannot meet in person at the minute, they can meet online. VIBE are meeting this Thursday evening on Zoom at 7.30pm. Sara will be speaking on being committed to the Bible. All young people who are Year 8 and up are very welcome to join the online gathering.

Farmers’ Mission 2020

The Farmers’ Mission begins this Friday coming (6th November) and is running over the course of the weekend. This year the mission will be a drive-in and there will be singers and testimonies as well as a Gospel message from Mr. Tom Saunderson. You will be able to see the mission on the stage and also on an additional large digital screen in Ballymena Livestock carpark. Everyone is warmly invited to attend.

Service Next Sunday

The service next Sunday will be taken by Rev. Dr. Martyn Cowan, Lecturer in Historical Theology at Union College.

Join us on FaceBook

If you are a facebook user, then we would invite to to join with us there. Over the coming weeks and months it is our intention to use facebook to provide useful information, highlight upcoming online events and share items of praise that can be used in conjunction with our online services.

We feel this is a great way for our Church to remain active in these uncertain times and to let the wider world have a little glimpse of our life in the Braid.
