Martyn 'ordained' to serve in Limerick

A large crowd gathered at Ballymena's newest Church building to see Martyn McGeown 'ordained' Covenant Protestant Reformed Church missionary in Limerick in the new CPRC Building on Clarence Street last Friday.

Minister of the congregation in Ballymena had the privilege of preaching at the gathering. Martyn was also joined by many of his friends from the Limerick Reformed Fellowship, as well as from England, Germany, Italy and of course, Ballymena.
