The Corrymeela Community is a charity based in Northern Ireland and is supported by St John’s. The main centre is based in a small seaside town called Ballycastle and it sits on top of a hill looking out onto the sea. This is a perfect location to share the Corrymeela message of Peace and reconciliation, one translation of Corrymeela actually means ‘Hill of Harmony’. The values and goals of Corrymeela are to love all, work together and not judge those different from our selves.
March the 17th, saw a St Patrick’s day sale in aid of Corrymeela at the Baptist church in Crowthorne. The event was well attended by the Crowthorne community. This ran during the normal churches together coffee morning at the Baptist church, where you could get anything from Cakes to books. Those who attended said it was a lovely event in aid of a wonderful charity.
This April Ian Gilchrist, a representative will be coming to St. John’s to talk about Corrymeela. He will be here at both the 8am and 10am service on the 17th of April.
