Scripture Union NI 'Unite' Event
Pupils from Ballymena Academy attended the Scripture Union NI 'Unite'
Event in the Ulster Hall on Saturday 11th March.
Senior CU Committee members Emma Smyth and Lauren Stevenson have
represented Ballymena Academy on the Ballymena SU district team since
September. They helped to organise a local schools 'Unite' - Praise, Prayer and
Pudding Event in Dunclug College on 10th February which was attended by a large
number of Ballymena Academy pupils as well as students from Slemish College,
Dunclug College, Cambridge House Grammar School and Cullybackey College.
Lauren and Emma also served as stewards on Saturday night at the Ulster Hall
and were delighted to meet pupils from Scripture Union groups from all over
Northern Ireland. It was fantastic to see Year 9 pupil John Kennedy speak about
CU in Ballymena Academy and how God has used it to impact his life.
Phil Howe from SUNI then spoke on John 17 v 20-26 - Christians' mission
to unite together. Videos were also shown including one which featured Emma
Smyth speaking about what Ballymena Academy Senior CU has been getting up to
this year. She shared about the 'God is greater than....' theme and how pupils
have been studying the Bible in small groups.
All pupils who attended really enjoyed the evening. Special thanks go to
Joel Hutchinson and Rachel Sheppard, E3 Ballymena SU workers, for all their
support and the staff of SUNI for putting on a fantastic 'Unite' event.
