Yesterday’s unfortunate incident has left us devastated; our congregation, which is generally full of life and happiness, has changed to grief and sorrow. We continue to pray for the full recovery of all those affected. We have been visiting the injured at the Royal Victoria Infirmary, conveying everyone’s message of prayer, best wishes and support.
