Well, final touches are being put together for the Mid-Africa focus night that is happening 2 weeks today. Focusing on a theme of “Transformation”, it is looking like a really engaging program with different speakers encouraging us to think about mission across the Mid-Africa region.

Alison Gill will be sharing stories from her recent trip to Burundi, Niall Manogue will be chatting about his experience in Rwanda and his hopes for the youth team heading out this summer. We’ve assembled some technological kit to allow us to have a live link up with Archbishop Bernard in Burundi, and find out about how the church is involved in transforming a country torn apart by conflict.

Neil Brittain is going to be tying the whole night together, and getting the chance to interview a few folk who have been involved in short term mission experiences in Uganda. Finally, Rev. Andrew Forster will be making to a return to the Oasis to help us think about how a local church in Ireland can benefit from an engagement with the global church.

It would be great to see you there – 7.00 start for a summer buffet (that’s salad type things I’m informed) with the program starting at 7.30pm. We’ll be at the Oasis cafe – at the Church of Ireland Centre at QUB, Elmwood Avenue, Belfast.

Feel free to get in touch if you need any more information.
