Mullagh Church of Ireland in the diocese of Kilmore celebrated its Bicentenary Anniversary on Sunday 15th September 2019 with a Harvest Thanksgiving of praise. The picturesque church on the edge of Mullagh lake was packed full as we gathered together as a parish and as a community to celebrate this special milestone. The service was led by the current rector – Rev. Ian Horner and the lesson was read by Norman Shekleton. Special music guests for the day were the fantastic Belturbet Church Praise band, directed by Rev. Tanya Woods, who lead the worship. The guest preacher was the Rt. Rev. Dr. Ferran Glenfield, Bishop of Kilmore, Elphin and Ardagh who spoke from Acts 2 about the unchanging mission of the church to spread the gospel message far and wide. Following the address Valerie Shekleton led the congregation in prayers of intercession and thanksgiving.
After the service a delicious tea was served in St. Killian’s Heritage Centre. It was a lovely occasion to see friends old and new as we gathered to give thanks for the life and witness of Mullagh Parish Church over the past 200 years. We look forward to being part of God’s ongoing work in this community.
