March Update 2023

“Their sorrow was turned to joy and their mourning to a day of celebration.”

Esther 9:22

It is just five months until we gather in Coleraine for a feast of Bible teaching, fellowship and worship.  We pray that God will speak powerfully to us through His Word and that our lives will be enriched as we come together this summer.

Over the coming months, we’ll be introducing our main stage speakers to you as we look forward to New Horizon 2023: 5 – 11 August in Coleraine.

Volunteering at New Horizon is an amazing way to experience the event, to make new friends and serve the church in Northern Ireland.   Teams work hard but also have so much fun.  Teams spend time praying together, an opportunity to draw closer to God and to see exciting answers to prayer throughout the week.
