A look inside another one of Warrenpoints Church buildings, this time the Methodist church in Church street. I will be adding a small video and a little bit of historical information soon.

These photographs were taken on the eve of the harvest festival service 2008, and this year the preacher for the evening service was Mr Alex Slater from the mission to fishermen, hence the nautical theme. The shoe-boxes and contents are for the children in Belarus in Russia, and have been donated by members and friends of the congregation.

A sad sign of the times, it seems that the vandals can't leave church buildings alone.

Beautiful photos once again Brian, and the wee Church is just as tiny inside as it looks from outside

Lovely photos, Brian. I was in that church just once, a very, very long time ago. Mrs Trodden's choir practised in the hall at the back occasionally & for some reason a couple of us had to go into the church, can't remember why..to get keys, maybe.

Such beautiful windows - vandalising a place of worship is as low as it gets.

Brian - beautiful pictures of the church, how sad to see lovely windows being smashed like that.
B&B - yes when I was in Mrs.Trodden's choir we practiced there quite often.
I think we did a couple of concerts there too because I remember Mom and Dad
coming out to hear us.
Just a note - we would practice each part separately at her house then when the
3 part harmonies were put together we always went into bigger places.

What a beautiful church! I never saw interior before. That ceiling is magnificent.
As to the vandals, I read about some of the destruction caused by these young thugs and wonder why the general public tolerates them. Can't something be done?

I would agree but then the papers would probably have a 'posse' of lawyers after them protesting about someone's human rights !

Too quick for me....was honestly kust about to say that !!! :D
Beautiful pics Brian...I wonder could you take some of the Church of Ireland sometime for us...It is just beautiful inside also but Im afraid the last time I was in was at our Richards funeral & just cant bring the nerve to go in again...as far as I recall there is a rememberance window/plaque donated to his memory..Richard McKee ?? Sorry for putting a dampner on the nice chat folks ....
I remember being in the back hall of the Methodist Church Liz watching Shona & the girls doing their displays...Oh those were the days !!! :D

I will be taking photos in the Church of Ireland next, followed by the Presbyterian, the two chapels and hopefully some of the other smaller Church's at a later stage. Another project I want to do is get photographs of the outside and inside of as many of the buildings in the town centre as possible. I have been already been likened to a modern day "Lawrence" (the photo collection chap) by some people, I only wish I had his skill! :rotfl:

Good for you, Brian. I am sure these will all be greatly appreciated not only by current Forum members but by who-knows-how-many in the future.

Thank you Brian.
Rev Huttons' Thanksgiving is next Sunday, maybe do there next week?
I went to the Harvest Service on Sunday night and heard Mr Slater speak. Think a seamens' mission is dear to our hearts, as we are a seaside people (webbed feet??).
To those of you who say you haven't been inside, you are guaranteed a very warm welcome.
This may not be "my" Church, but I feel all the Churches in the town are "ours", and the vandalism is so difficult to understand.

It is so sad to read about the vandalism (it' happening in the Churches here in Wales also) as this was 'my' church when I lived at home. Every Sunday morning 10.30. I took my first Communion and my Sister Kathleen was married there. It is indeed a lovely Church.
