Story

Dear Friends

It is with sadness that we must report that we have experienced another burglary at Christ Church Kilmore. Entry was forced on the night of Monday 11th June, causing extensive damage to the church and church hall. It would appear that our Food Bank was the primary focus of attention.

This is a huge blow, especially as we are only just recovering from our 1st burglary, a little under a month ago. It is an incredible irony that people would break in and steal food when we are quite prepared to give it away to anyone in need.

Our Food Bank has been running for four years and we would not have been able to provide over three hundred emergency food parcels last year without the support of individuals, local churches and community organisations.

We would like to take the opportunity to express our grateful thanks to everyone who has supported our ministry and for their prayers, concerns and well wishes at this time. It is our intention to remain faithful to this ministry of compassion, to which we believe God has called us and to forgive and to pray for the perpetrators of this crime whoever they may be.

Every blessings in Christ

Rev Stephen Smyth
