The Friendship Centre is a place within the Mission where our elderly members can meet for a time of friendship, fun and food. We meet each Wednesday and Friday from mid-September until June.
Members arrive at 11.00 am and are greeted not only by a team of dedicated leaders but with a warm cup of tea and biscuit. They love to either sit and chat, visit our Hopes Charity Shop, perhaps
have a game of boccia.
A delicious home cooked hot dinner is then served at 12.00. Members happily leave at 12.30. Special events are organised throughout the year.
Our Friendship Centre is open to members of the community who we warmly invite to come and join.
If you are interested please contact our Mission Office on 02890852546 for more details.
Every Tuesday at 7:45pm
This provides an opportunity for Christians to be built up in their faith. The evening begins with a time of worship, allowing those gathered focus their thoughts on the great things God has done for us in Jesus Christ.
This is followed by prayer before turning to a Bible Book/theme for study over a period of a couple of weeks or longer.
The importance of believers working together systematically through a Bible book, while seeking to apply it to their lives is a fruitful and worthwhile way to deepen Christian fellowship.
One Saturday morning a month
We meet approx once a month to be fed, (spiritually and literally), encouraged and challenged. All men are very welcome.
For more information please contact Davy on 07772757771.

Fortnightly (dates/times and location vary on group)
There are currently 3 house groups meeting to study the bible and relevant topics.
For more information on dates and location please contact Davy Smyth on 07772757771 who will then forward you to the relevant leader of whichever house group you’d like to join.
Redeeming Our Communities (ROC)
6-8 hours every month
ROC Care Rathcoole is a befriending scheme providing a befriender volunteer to visit or phone an isolated older person living in Rathcoole.
Social isolation is a rising issue in our communities affecting people of all ages and backgrounds. Older people are most profoundly affected with ‘1 in 3 older people saying TV is their main form of company’ (AGE UK). Loneliness is found to be as bad for health as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. The conversation and company of a befriender improves health and wellbeing for our clients.
Volunteers from the Mission and the local befriender give 6-8 hours per month serving as befrienders.
The project is run in partnership with Newtownabbey Methodist Mission and is part funded by Rathcoole Neighbourhood Renewal Partnership and Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or call 02890 351020.
