We invite all to stay for the afternoon program – part of the Dublin Stewardship Drive program. Guest speaker is pastor David Neal, Stewardship director at Trans-European Division.

Along with him will be pastor Dan Serb, the president of the Irish Mission, who will give us an update on the progress of plans for the second building in Dublin.

After the presentation, we all are invited to stay a bit more, to discuss and decide regarding the move. The church board will forward a proposal.

Events in the Irish Mission for the summer

Irish Mission Day of Fellowship

The Irish Mission Day of Fellowship for 2018 will take place on 2 June this year. The guest speaker for the event is Dr. Alan Parker from Southern Adventist University. Dr. Alan Parker is a dynamic speaker and a specialist in church growth and outreach. The event will take place at the Betania Romanian Church, Damastown Road, Blanchardstown, Dublin. A more detailed programme for the day will be published shortly.

Vacation Bible School

When? – 2nd – 6th July. Where? Ranelagh Adventist Church. Who is invited? Children 4-12 years of age. Preschoolers accompanied by parents will have their own group. Theme? Babylon – Daniel’s Courage in Captivity. Join Daniel—torn from his home and forced into the king’s service. Explore exotic sights and smells in a Babylonian bazaar! Kids and adults will find that they’re not much different from Daniel and his friends, who kept their faith in a faithless culture. For details contact VBS director, Petar Popivanov 083 414 2880. 

Camp Meeting 2018

The next Irish Mission Family camp will take place at Newmarket on Fergus on the 3rd to 6th of August 2018. We hope that this will be the best attended Camp Meeting in the history of the Irish Mission. Churches across Ireland would have received a special personal invitation by now. Keep an eye on this space for more registration details. Any urgent questions? E-mail Pastor Lorance Johnson – lorance@adventist.ie

Summer Camp 2018

Every year in the month of August we have the Summer Camp, for kids and youth. Save the dates for the one coming: 14-22 August. More details will follow soon. We plan to have a better experience than the one of last year, so we are thinking of new and exciting activities for all those coming.

As the deadline for our move gets closer, we want to discuss our options and get to a decision. We do have several options, as described here http://dublinwestsda.ie/2018/04/20/we-are-moving-to/ (thank you for the 90 visits of this post!).

The latest news is that Elim Church has informed us of their warm welcome for our church. (Yes, we can go there.) So, our afternoon program will be one of rememberance of the grace of God during our stay in Coolmine and a decision as to when and where do we move.

Job opening in IM

Dublin West Seventh-day Adventist Church

Dear pastors and elders

As a result of discussions with some of the Irish Mission elders, the IM Executive has commissioned me to extend an invitation for lay members throughout the Mission to apply for the position of Bible Worker (see brief job description attached).

The application is made directly with the Office (dan@adventist.ie or marci@adventist.ie) and the deadline is Sunday, 3 June. All applicants would need to participate in a Bible Worker training programme that will be conducted by Pr Kirk Thomas, BUC Evangelism Director during a weekend to be announced.

Once the training is concluded, the Mission in consultation with the pastoral team and input from the local churches, will identify the areas of need within the IM and then advertise the respective posts. Interviews will then take place.

The Mission continues to seek ways in which we can support the successful candidates and, so far, we envisage that all transport cost can be covered for the Bible Workers.

When applying, please fill in the attached form and send it to the Office with an accompanying email in which you give a one page (double spaced) description of your spiritual journey and ministry in the church thus far. Please make sure to keep a copy of the attached document for yourself.

We plan to have the Bible workers active sometime in August/September and the commitment would be for 1 year with the possibility of extending the period of service.

We thank all those who will apply for their willingness to serve and assist us in fulfilling our mission to nurture and reach out within the territory of our Mission.

Please could you kindly advertise and promote this opportunity weekly in your church so that everyone who would like this opportunity can have plenty of time to apply.

“But the Holy Spirit will come upon you and give you power. Then you will tell everyone about me in Jerusalem, in all Judea, in Samaria, and everywhere in the world.” – Acts 1:8.

Wishing you all God’s guidance, peace and richest blessings.

Alternative afternoon program –

Screening the movie “Is Genesis History?” in other churches

Card1

Thank you for supporting the evangelistic initiative of screening the movie-documentary IS GENESIS HISTORY? We had more than 10 visitors, some coming as they received a printed invitation (for example a religion teacher), others as they’ve been reached by our Facebok ad (some ladies from the community around the church), while some others as they are new friends to the church.

Here is some of the feedback we got from our visitors:

  • “Thank you for organising the documentary screening. It was very informative.” (C.)
  • “I found the film very interesting and I’ll certainly check out YouTube for the other resources of Is Genesis History”. (A.)

This Sabbath afternoon the movie is projected again in other churches in Dublin. If you and your friends want to come around, you are welcome at 4PM in the Romanian Church, in Tallaght (English), while at 7PM the same program is being run in Ranelagh Church.

Info/News for the church

Where and when do we move?

Thank you all for praying and giving feedback on our efforts to find a new venue for worship. Last week we gave a short report of where we are now (you can read it here: http://dublinwestsda.ie/2018/04/20/we-are-moving-to/). The post was accessed 62 times by now, so we presume that every family in the church knows about our next steps.

On Wednesday this coming week the pastor will have a meeting with the pastors of the churches mentioned as “the first option” and hopefully we will get a positive answer from one of them.

Save the date – 2 June – Irish Mission Day of Fellowship

The Irish Mission Day of Fellowship for 2018 will take place on 2 June this year. The guest speaker for the event is Dr. Alan Parker from Southern Adventist University. Dr. Alan Parker is a dynamic speaker and a specialist in church growth and outreach. The event will take place at the Betania Romanian Church, Damastown Road, Blanchardstown, Dublin. A more detailed programme for the day will be published shortly.

Pathfinders Camporee

Next weekend our youth will go to the annual Pathfinder Camporee – they have already had some training sessions during Sundays, even to learn how to put up a new tent. For all those interested into more details, please contact our Dublin West Pathfinder Leaders or the director of the Dublin Royals Club, Merrell Kaaran – 086 385 6346.

Fellowship Lunch

016

As we have a special afternoon program, we invite you all for a Fellowship Lunch. You are encouraged to bring your special dish, traditional food (preferable vegetarian), fruits and juices/water. Bring an extra portion as we always have guests. 

Don’t forget, this is a good opportunity to share our meal with other people, to invite them also to join us, be they rich or poor. 

Afternoon program – screening the movie Is Genesis History?

Card1

The time has come for us to watch with our youth, friends and the whole church the movie-documentary IS GENESIS HISTORY? It is a special media product introducing us to many proofs regarding the historicity of the first book of the Bible, Genesis. This Sabbath in the afternoon at 4pm we will screen the movie.

Please check and click “going” on the Facebook Event. You can also register via EventBrite. All the details on our Evangelism page in the main menu.

We are moving to…

As you might know by now, we as Dublin West Seventh-Day Adventist Church are going to leave the premises of Coolmine Community School. By the end of May we should be relocated.

As expected, we’ve tried almost if not all the venues around: churches, community centres, hotels, facilities of Adult Education. You might be surprised to know that is very hard to find a place to suit our needs in termes of number of seats, rooms needed, hours of service etc. Some places are too small, some too expensive, some others are booked already, including Saturdays – without involving any Sabbath-worship.

As the deadline approaches, we’ve narrowed our options to three main ones, detailed below.

The first option is to move to another church. We are still waiting for an answer and deal with two Evangelical churches situated both in Rosemount Business Park (5km from our previous location). We’ve made a first contact, a visit in person and a formal discussion with their pastors. Below are some pictures from Elim Church (100 seats down + more at balcony) and Divine Power (150 seats set and room for others).

Elim Church




Divine Power




The second option would be to relocate in a community centre in Blanchardstown. The main issue there is that in the morning they are all aready booked. Only in one of the close by community centres we could get two Sabbaths in the mornings, while the other two-three only in the afternoons. In others like Blakestown or Mulhuddart we can get only in the afternoons, with all the other needs fulfilled: seats, rooms, parking etc.

The third option would be to use the worship halls of our Adevntist churches in the area, be that Ranelagh or Romanian churches. Of course, this option also includes worshipping in the afternoons only.

Some other options involve too much of an investment. One is renting a place ready to move into, using it for ourselves 24/7, but at a higher cost (at a double sum than what we pay now); making a contract to let a warehouse for a long period and adapt it to our needs, also with an expensive cost (adapting it to make it a church and then a rent three times our current expense).

We ask you once again to pray fervently for this problem so that the Lord will lead us to the right place. By the end of this month (April) we might have a clear answer, a church board decision and during the month of May we will announce the move. 

Please remember the text we used last year when we organized the company into a church:

“In your unfailing love you will lead the people you have redeemed. In your strenght you will guide them to your holy dwelling.” (Exodus 15:13)

Please get in touch with any of the church board members. Don’t forget to tell it to our Lord. Ask, and it shall be given unto you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Irish Mission Financial Report 2017

The year-end financial report and annual tithe figures for the Irish Mission has been uploaded to the Irish Mission website. Significantly the report shows a 22% growth in income from the year before, making the Irish Mission the church entity within the British Union that has shown the strongest year-on-year growth in 2017.

“Some of the growth in income can be explained by a more favourable exchange rate,” said Earl Ramharacksingh, who serves as treasurer of the Adventist Church in Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as the British Union. “But it is also a story of a significant increase in church member support of the local church.”

So far it seems it is very hard to secure a place for every Sabbath, at the hours we want, at the size we need etc. If anyone knows of a good and suitable place, we would be interested to know. Please get in touch with any of the church board members.

4. EVANGELISM – IS GENESIS HISTORY? 

Please make yourself ready to be involved in an advertising campaign for the screening of the movie IS GENESIS HISTORY? You will be provided with posters, cards, ads for social media. We will use our worship hall for this event on the afternoon of 21 April. Details on our Evangelism page in the main menu.

5. PRAYER MEETING 

Every Friday night, at 7pm, you are welcome to join our prayer group in Blanchardstown. For one hour or so you carry along with other brothers and sisters the needs of our church, the needs of our loved ones or of the people around us so that God will make His will known and fulfilled. If you have a special need, let us know and we will pray for you. Text your prayer request to 087 742 1360.

6. FUTURE EVENTS IN DUBLIN WEST / IRISH MISSION

“My prayer is not for them [the disciples] alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.” (Jesus Christ in John 17:20-21)
