S-CLUB: The Sunday School in Ballymore has over 100 members and meets on a Sunday morning in the Parish Hall during Church time. On the third Sunday of each month at the Family Service, the children lead the prayers and do the readings while others lift the collection and act as Junior Churchwardens. Every year the S-Club also raises money for a nominated charity and take part in various fundraising events including the annual Lenten Lunch. New members from the age of 3 upwards are always welcome.
The Girls’ Friendly Society is a Church youth organisation for girls that seeks to empower girls and young women, encouraging them to develop their full potential through programs that provide training, confidence building, and other educational opportunities. Ballymore Branch of GFS meets on a Wednesday night in the Parish Hall from 6.15pm – 8pm. Each week the girls play games, take part in arts and crafts activities and hear bible stories. Girls from the age of 3 years of age upwards are welcome to join.
Our members are not all mothers, or even all women. They are single, married, parents, grandparents, or young adults just beginning to express their social conscience. Mothers’ Union provides, for all four million members, a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community – through prayer, financial support and actively working at the grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs.
There are more than four million members of Mothers’ Union today in 84 countries around the world. Each member subscribes to the same values: We are firmly rooted in voluntary ethos centred on mutual respect and collaboration.
Our governance, leadership and programmes are driven by and undertaken through members within their own communities worldwide. We are inclusive and work with people of all faiths and none.
Our aims and objectives are:
• To encourage parents in their role to develop the faith of their children
• To maintain a worldwide fellowship of Christians united in prayer, worship and service
• To promote conditions in society favourable to stable family life and the protection of children
• To help those whose family life has met with adversity
• To promote and support married life
Ballymore Branch of the Mothers’ Union meets on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 8pm in the Parish Hall.
