What does the Church - at First Larne and elswhere - have to offer? Come along to both services to find out!

11am "WHAT CHRISTIANS BELIEVE - in 90 seconds!"

Saturday 14th April is the big day when two members of First Larne will join several others in a sponsored abseil from the historic heights of Belfast Castle. We wish the Rev. McClure and Michael Bailie (Editor, Bridge News) well as they take in the views over Belfast Lough!

As the Easter holidays come to an end you and yours are welcome to join us at First for our services this Sunday. At both services we continue to look at the significance of the resurrection - as an historical event AND how it has contemporary relevance for all of us.

The Mirror

Three ‘t’s on the scrubby hill, neatly crossed the Roman way,
The naked ‘i’s, skewered like worms, dotted burgundy with blood,
As clear to the passing eye as three billboards by a roadside:
