Ballyblack Presbyterian Church, Newtownards was recently the venue for the annual Seedtime & Ploughman’s Service.
The service was conducted by Rev Simon Henning B.A., B.D. minister of the congregation and the special guest speaker was Mr Clarke Black, C.E.O. of the Ulster Farmers’ Union. Clarke spoke about his view of the challenges currently farming industry but was optimistic about his hopes for the future.
Mr Stephen Weatherup, Secretary of the Society of Ploughmen, N.I. and members of the wider farming community took part in the service. The very generous offering of £740 was donated to Rural Support and Fields of Life and supper was served in the church hall following the service.
