Special service will recognise and pray for farming communities

Monday 16 April 2018

Dromore Cathedral will host a special service on Saturday 28 April which will recognise the value of, and pray for, our farming communities.

Event organisers, The Health & Safety Executive Christian Union,  would love to see Dromore Cathedral filled with people passionate to see our rural communities and farm safety transformed by prayer and the love of Jesus. 

Rector and Dean of Dromore Cathedral, The Very Revd Geoff Wilson said:

“Having grown up on a farm in County Armagh, I understand only too well the many challenges facing those involved in every aspect of the farming industry at the current time. The church family of Dromore Cathedral feels particularly privileged to be part of this initiative conceived of by the Christian Union within HSENI.  Through the service on 28 April we hope and pray farmers, and their families, will feel that they count for more than the cost of their product and are highly valued in the eyes of our community and in the eyes of God.” 

The service begins at 2.30 pm and will last for approximately an hour with light refreshments served afterwards. All who are interested are warmly invited to come together to ask God to protect the lives of those who farm our land and for a new sense of hope and blessing on our rural communities.

Funds raised from an offering on the day will benefit Rural Support NI.
