Diocesan Events – postponements and cancellations

Like many others the diocese has had to look ahead and postpone or cancel some important events.

Diocesan Synod 

Diocesan Synod which was scheduled for 25 June is postponed but a new date will be announced in due course. Parish General Vestry meetings will also not go ahead at the moment.

Installation of Archdeacon and Canons

The installation of Revd Canon Ken Higgins as the Archdeacon of Down and Revds Bill Press and Helene Steed as Chapter Canons of Down Cathedral is postponed until government guidelines allow for this to happen. 

Saturday Night Live

April’s Saturday Night Live has been cancelled. Watch out for further news about the June event.

Children’s Praise Party 

This was planned for May. For now it has been postponed with a possible new date in the autumn.

Kilbroney Adventure Camps and Bible Week

At the moment the intention is that our Kilbroney Camps will go ahead as planned. The same applies to Bible Week. 

Summer Madness  

Although not a diocesan event, his has been cancelled but the SM team is working on other ways of how to connect. 

New Wine Ireland Sligo 20

Again, not a diocesan event, but this has been postponed until July 2021. There are plans for large gatherings in the autumn.
