’No Ceiling to Hope’
23 Jun 2012
‘No Ceiling To Hope’ with guest speaker Patrick Regan, will be a night of worship and inspiration for church, community, youth workers and all Christians who want to do more for their fellow men, women and children.
When: Saturday 23rd June at 8.00pm
Where: Willowfield Parish Church, Belfast.
Patrick Regan is the founder of an urban youth charity in London called “the excel project” or XLP as it is also known. The charity serves young people in schools and communities across seven inner–London boroughs. He has written a new book called ‘No Ceiling to Hope– Dangerous stories of grace in action’ which came about as a result of the recent riots in London.
The book recounts his travels around the world which took him to troubled areas where he witnessed grace in action, and saw Christians reaching out to those in need. One of the chapters deals with time he spent on the Shankill Road, and his involvement particularly with Woodvale Methodist Church and a group of elderly ladies from the parish who reached out to the community by cooking meals for unemployed men who would spend their days sitting in the local pubs.
Patrick recently won the Mayor of London’s peace award. He speaks regularly at Soul Survivor, Spring Harvest and he is an Ambassador for the charity ‘Compassion.’ Patrick is returning to Belfast to promote his book, and to talk about the work he does with XLP. The event promises to be a source of inspiration for all those who attend.
No Ceiling to Hope by Patrick Regan will be available to buy on the night, or can be purchased in advance from ‘The Good Book Shop’ special price £5.99
