They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers […] day by day, attending the temple together […] praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.
(Acts of the Apostles, 2:42-47)

Adventist Community Services Dublin

Our latest development

No need for many words. We have been “baptized” tonight in our becoming… Adventist Community Services. On a short notice, of only a few hours, we managed to set the table and serve the food, holding the place of our friends and veterans from #HopeintheDarkness. We’ll let the pictures and videos tell the rest.
