Mission Shop seeks help

Ballymena shoppers are being urged to ‘engage’ with an exciting new venture being organised by First Ahoghill.

Situated on Broughshane Street beside Lloyds Chemist, ‘Engage’ will be a Mission Shop aiming to raise funds for all the projects supported by the caring congregation.

Initially, the plan is to open for each of the five Saturdays in June beginning on the 1st of the month and going right through until 29th.

The vision for the project was given by God to Eleanor McKay, who is a member of the church’s missionary team.

She said: “I feel that God is asking us to reach out to those who need love and practical help in Ballymena and beyond.”

If anyone wants to bring donations, the shop will be open on Thursdays from 6pm-9pm before trading begins to receive stock.
