Gillygooley Walking Club

with an enrolment of over 30 members. The club which is based in Gillygooley
Orange Hall draws its membership from both an urban and rural base. Both
leisurely and more challenging routes are designed to suit all abili es with the
emphasis on improving ones fitness level. Another important aspect of the club is
the social interac on as each walk concludes with a welcome cup of tea and
fellowship.
Pictured below are some members of the club pictured in their new walking jackets

Gillygooley 2nd Youth (50+ Club)
Although hall based ac vi es ceased for the season in May, members do not believe in le ng the grass grow
under their feet as several out of centre ac vi es were organised for the summer months. In May members
travelled to Garden Show Ireland at Hillsborough Castle Grounds and the following month par cipated in a good
rela ons project jointly with Lifford & Clonleigh Club. Following lunch both clubs enjoyed a tour of the Titanic
Exhibi on at the Ulster American Folk Park. On Saturday 30th June members travelled to Carrick-on-Shannon
stopping on route at Le erbreen Methodist Church hall for coffee and fellowship. On arrival at Carrick-onShannon members visi ed St Georges Heritage & vistors centre which has been a Church of Ireland Church for
almost 200 years and doubles as a place of worship and heritage centre. Before lunch they also visited the
Costello Memorial Chapel where the earthly remains of Mary Costella and her husband are laid to rest. The
chapel is the second smallest in the world only surpassed by one smaller in the Holy Land. It is a remarkable
example of mans deep affec on for his wife who died in 1877 aged 46 years. The 16 long x 12 wide chapel
was built by the former farmer as a las ng memorial to his wife’s memory.
Following a leisurely cruise on the Shannon serenaded by local musicians members travelled to Corick House for
an evening meal. The final trip of the summer season which was for less able members was to the “World of
Owls” Randalstown which is a charitable sanctuary for owls, birds of prey and exo c animals in Northern Ireland.
The party then enjoyed lunch in Truffles Restaurant before travelling to Antrim Gardens which have only
recently re-opened following extensive landscaping. On the homeward journey members enjoyed an evening
meal in the Braeside Restaurant, Cookstown.
The Club re-opens on Monday 24th September and meets on the last Monday of each month in Gillygooley
Orange Hall. New members always welcome.

Gossiping is a Sin
I want to share with you something I recently read in a na onal newspaper.
Canada’s largest Protestant denomina on “the United Church in Canada is urging congrega ons to stop
gossiping, likening it to gambling and other evils of Society”
Gossip can cause people to lose their jobs, create difficul es within rela onships, cause extreme hurt and
destroy peoples reputa ons.
Accordingly a mo on under considera on at the church’s 41st General Council held in O awa ins lled a lively
debate. Wise sen ments and something many of us are guilty of from me to me. A rule of thumb should be
if one hears something check out its source or authority before spreading it further or be er s ll “keep it to one
self” and the truth will eventually emerge if the rumour has founda on.

James Chapter 3 verse 5-11
“Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on
fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole
person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and itself set on fire by hell.
All kinds of animals, birds, repƟles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but
no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we can praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s
likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, which should not be. Can both fresh
water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig-tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear
figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.”
“The Grace of Giving”
The General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, meeƟng in June 2012,
commends “The Grace of Giving” iniƟaƟve to the whole Church
Two years ago the General Assembly passed the following resolu on: “That the General Assembly support a
Church-wide policy to encourage Presbyterians to plan their Chris an generosity as a percentage of their income
and appoint an ad-hoc Commi ee to plan how this policy may be encouraged throughout the Church” (General
Assembly 2010).
Since then a small commi ee has been looking at how our church members can be encouraged to give regularly,
sacrificially and realis cally. This is a challenging task, not least because people are very sensi ve when it comes
to money ma ers and also we have been living through a me of deep recession where some people are finding
it hard to make ends meet and some are losing their jobs.
Despite this the commi ee was convinced that the issue of giving among our general membership needs to be
faced and a strategy undertaken to con nue to raise our people’s planned giving to the levels encouraged in the
Bible and o en spoken of by our Lord. Those who have researched this issue es mate that 50% of churches are
struggling to meet recurrent running costs and lack of finance is a major inhibitor for churches seeking to fulfil
their mission goals.
The commi ee believes that educa on is key in the process of encouraging giving and the church wide strategy,
launched at the 2012 General Assembly, called ‘The Grace of Giving’ ini a ve aims to do a number of things:
 Encourage ministers to speak on this topic where before they may have been reluctant.

Provide resources for churches to help teach on this important issue.

Raise the level of our planned giving to more realis c levels especially among our communicant
membership as a loving response to the generous grace of God shown to us.

Give help and referral resources for ministers to assist the increasing number of people struggling with
finance management and debt issues. (Chris ans Against Poverty)

Keep the issue before our people over the next few years with on-going resources and informa on.
The 2012 General Assembly passed the following resolu ons:
1. That the General Assembly commend the “Grace of Giving”
ini a ve to the whole Church
2.
That the General Assembly, conscious of the difficul es in
which people may find themselves in the current recession,
call congrega ons to be aware that there may be individuals
and families with whose basic needs local congrega on may
be able to assist.
3.
That the General Assembly request ministers to preach and
teach regularly about the importance of Chris an generosity
as a percentage of what is received.

Is Trinity an “umbrella organisaƟon”?
Last chance-October!!
During 2012 fi een umbrellas have been le behind in
Trinity Church porch. It has been suggested that this
number represents one for each member of the Church
choir on a good day, but perhaps more realis cally it is
an oblique measure of our recent poor weather.
Anyway, the search is now on for their owners. Anyone
who recognises an umbrella from the photo is invited to
either claim it back OR inform the righ ul owner where
it may be found. At the end of October the Church
commi ee will decide on their disposal or otherwise.
Views from the pews
Why are the front middle pews in Trinity almost always
le empty? Viewed from the front this gives the false impression of the size of the congrega on. Are Trinity
members naturally shy or is it simply a presbyterian trait to “fill” from the back?
Editors Note: If YOU have ques ons Trinity News wants to hear them. Speak to any member of Session or
Commi ee or put your ques on in the box at the entrance porch.
Childrens Service at Gillygooley
A capacity congrega on was present for the annual Childrens Service on Sunday 10th June. Rev Herron
welcomed everyone and invited several of the young people to take part in the service. Par cipa ng in the call
to worship were Tyler Donnell, Helena Caldwell and Glenn McKinley who read from 1st Corinthians. Leading the
prayers were Karen King, Stephanie Hunter, Jack Stevenson and Nicola Hemphill and the offering was taken up
by Rebecca & George Donnell, Ryan Crawford and Jason King. Others who took part in the service were Kellie
Anderson, Calvin McKinley and Stephen Fleming.
The Rev Herron received a presenta on from the Sunday School which he received on behalf of the “Stand by
me” project. This is the Youth and Sunday School project of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland for 2011/2012.
The presenta on was made by Oliver King and Timothy Donnell. The accompanist for the service was Amanda
Graham who also trained the junior choir. Emma Hunter also made a musical contribu on to the service.
During the service Rev Herron and Beverley Fleming Sunday School Superintendent presented the prizes to the
children. Following the service everyone was invited to the Orange Hall for morning coffee which was served by
members of the Bible Class.

Queen’s Diamond Jubilee
Hundreds of people from a wide area travelled to the scenic Pigeon Top for an evening of celebra on and
entertainment to mark the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II Andrew Sco chairman of Gillygooley Youth &
Community Associa on paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth for her faith, sense of duty and service to her country
she has reigned through some of the most profound and breathtaking changes which have taken place in our
history he said. Andrew then invited the chairpersons of the other two organisa ons to join him in a toast to her
Majesty which was followed by a rousing cheer from the large crowd gathered. The highlight of the evening was
the ligh ng of three beacons by Ethel McClelland, Andrew Sco and Norman O’Donnell chairpersons of the
three organisa ons who staged the event namely Gillygooley Youth & Community Development Associa on,
Drumquin Orange Historical Society and Fireagh L.O.L. 468. The event was a re-enactment of a community
celebra on held in 1937, at the same loca on, when a bonfire was lit to celebrate the corona on of King George
V1. Unlike the 1937 event when the mode of transport would have been horse, bicycle or walking to facilitate
the large a endance two mini buses conveyed those who did not wish to bring their vehicles to the mountain.
The organisers welcomed the visit of Omagh District Councils vice-chairman Ross Hussey to the event whose
support was much appreciated. A non stop four hours of entertainment preceded the ligh ng of the beacons on
stage was Leslie Ma hews, Lynsey Sco , Julie Donnell, Kyra McKinley and Linkbox Joe. Others who entertained
were Drumquin Blue Thistle Dancers, Gillygooley and Drumquin Pipe Bands who joined together in a grand
finale. The event was compered by Raymond King vice-chairman of Gillygooley Y.C.D.A. Entertainment for the
children was provided in the form of bouncy castle, face pain ng etc. To relinquish hunger pangs from the good
mountain air a B.B.Q. was held throughout the evening. The event was part funded by The Ulster Scots Agency
and Omagh District Council. Andrew Sco chairperson of Gillygooley Y.C.D.A. and co-coordinator of the event
expressed thanks to everyone who had contributed to the success of the evening.
