Gilford Church of Ireland Hall Opening – Lockhart

Upper Bann MP, Carla Lockhart and Cllr Ian Wilson have congratulated the select vestry and parishioners of Gilford Church of Ireland on the opening of their newly refurbished church hall.  A significant investment has been made by the church to enhance accessibility, revamp the main hall, create a quiet space and improve the toilet provision.

Speaking after attending their community open day on Saturday, Carla Lockhart MP and Cllr Wilson said, “what a wonderful facility and I would commend the select vestry and parishioners on their efforts to create a very accessible and welcoming facility for all the community.  The area of Gilford is close knit and I have no doubt that the hall will be put to good use not only by the church folks but also the local community.  It is always great to see a church growing and enhancing their facilities.  This sends out a strong signal of being ingrained in the area and to spreading the good news of the gospel.  

I wish the church well as they seek out new uses for the hall.  Such a warm, friendly welcome awaits anyone who uses the facility.  Gilford Church of Ireland certainly is a beautiful historic building and to now have a nice modern hall to accompany the church building is testament to the congregation having been blessed.”
