SHOE BOX APPEAL: The Bible Study in conjunction with Drop Inn Ministries would like to encourage individuals and families to take part again this year in the special Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal. All we ask is that you fill a shoebox with some small gifts for a child for Christmas and Team Hope will deliver them to Eastern Europe or Africa. All boxes from Ballymore should be brought to Church before Sunday 3rd November. You will find leaflets with information about what to include in your shoebox at the back of Church. Last year we sent a total of 54 shoeboxes from the Parish so it would be great to send at least that many if not more this year. Your help with this project would be very much appreciated.
