Update from Chairman of Headway (Ireland) – February 2019

“I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.” (Galatians 2v20)

Dear Friends of Headway,

This is an update about events which we are planning D.V. in the coming months.

We are encouraged by widening support for the work we do. At this time many churches in the western world are faced with the challenge of a trendiness which questions the plain teaching of Scripture. Evangelical Movements, like Headway, feel a duty, given by God, to provide the Church with a reasoned Biblical corrective. We regard ourselves as supporters of traditional Methodist doctrine while embracing fresh ways of “being church.”

“HOLINESS OF THE HEART” on 3rd April 2019
We are pleased that the speaker at our Headway Spring Celebration on 3rd April at 7.45 p.m. in Seymour Street Methodist Church, Lisburn, will be Rev Dr David Wilkinson (Durham).

David is no stranger to Ireland or Irish Methodism and we are grateful that he has accepted our invitation to speak on the topic: “Holiness of the Heart.”

This is a public rally and you can invite all, especially from your Circuit. We pray that God will give to us all, the grace of a holy life.

At the same time, the Queen’s University Chaplaincy has helpfully linked up with us concerning the visit of David. They announce that on Tuesday 2nd April, David will give a public evening lecture on the role of science, theology and the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. This lecture will be at 6 p.m.  Details will soon be available.

David Wilkinson is a Methodist minister, theologian and astrophysicist. He is currently Principal of St John’s College, Durham. He is regular speaker on BBC “Thought for the Day.”

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING on 7th June 2019

The AGM is planned for Friday 7 June at 7.30 p.m. in Seymour Street Methodist Church, Lisburn. At this meeting we shall review our calling to prayer and holiness and continued theological vigilance. We encourage our Church members to pray for revival both personally and corporately.  We persuade members to engage in confident articulate witness to our Lord Jesus Christ as personal Saviour.

CORK CONFERENCE MEETING on 13th June 2019

Headway is pleased to host a public evening celebration at the Methodist Conference in Cork on Thursday 13 June at 7.30 p.m. D.V. The theme of the evening is: “Reaching Every Generation in Changing Irish Culture” when we will be addressed by three local speakers.

To keep in touch with our counterparts in British Methodism, it is our plan to send out to our membership one copy per year of their magazine MET (Methodist Evangelicals Together).

We are glad to hear from you. Feel free to circulate this update among friends. Our secretary is Rev Ken Robinson (ptrobinson@btinternet.com) and our website is  www.headwayireland.com.

May God bless you.

Rev. Ken Todd (Chairman)
