Ballinode Church of Ireland by Malcolm Totten www.picturesofireland.ie

Sunday Service resumed last Sunday in Ballinode, with reduced capacity, and social distancing leaving a lot of pews unused. Short term plans are to continue with Service led by Chancellor Ian Berry in St Dymphna’s Ballinode on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at 12.15pm, and in St Aidan’s Kilmore Church on the first and third Sundays at 12.15pm. Sunday worship will also be available at 10.30am in St Patrick’s Church and on Facebook live. As not everyone will be able to or want to be back in the buildings straight away, St. Patrick’s Select Vestry have decided that it would be good to continue to live-stream the services on Facebook live and better equipment is being procured to improve this. The €4 tripod and flower stand have served us well since lockdown began! There are also plans to continue the livestream of Wednesday night Bible Studies until the end of July.
