One of the highlights of each year’s General Assembly is the Evening Celebration - and this year is no exception, as it is a great time of praise, worship and fellowship. The theme for the evening is ‘Grace Works’, it is open to everyone and there is no need to book - its also free to attend.

Having been formally nominated, elected and installed on the Opening Night of the General Assembly, PCI’s new Moderator, Rev Dr John Kirkpatrick of Portrush Presbyterian Church (pictured right), will host the event, with others also taking part. All are welcome and no ticket is required.

Encouraging Presbyterians, and non-Presbyterians alike, to consider attending, Dr Kirkpatrick said, “It is always a very special night and this year we will gather around the theme for my year in office, which is ‘Grace Works’. Described variously as ‘amazing’ in the words of the famous hymn, but essentially Grace is God’s favour towards the underserving, something that changes everything for those who understand it.”

  • Host: PCI's new Moderator - Rt Rev Dr John Kirkpatrick
  • Music: New Irish Arts
  • Poetry: Andrew Roycroft
  • Keynote Speaker: Peter Lynas

During the Evening Celebration, which will be live streamed here, worship and music will be provided by New Irish Arts, there will also be specially commissioned poetry from Andrew Roycroft.

Bringing a wider perspective to the theme of ‘Grace Works’ will be keynote speaker Peter Lynas (pictured left). As the Evangelical Alliance’s UK director, and before that the director of EA in Northern Ireland, Peter is well known to many for his appearances on local media.

As part of the evening three specially commissioned powerful short films have been commissioned that tell the story of three generations of one family. Each has come to know the Grace of God, not in just one moment, or as a theological concept, but in the here and now, and in a life changing way.
