6. DUBLIN DAY OF FELLOWSHIP.

On the first Sabbath of December, that is 2 December 2017, the churches in Greater Dublin Area will have Dublin Day of Fellowship. The event will take place in Tallaght, at Maldron Hotel (in the morning) and at the Romanian Church (in the afternoon). The speaker will be pastor Lorance Johnson (pastor in Cork). Also the Stanborough Press will come with a full display of their offer so that an open bookshop will be organized after sunset. It will be a good opportunity to get new and old resources for our spiritual nourishment and for the outreach.
