The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted,to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners (Isaiah 61:1)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our dear brother in Christ, James Twyford.
A much valued member of our church over many decades, James was without a doubt respected as a most positive and fun loving ‘gentle-man’.
James was always ready to encourage, and also to reassure that you were in his prayers, for James had a great belief in the power of prayer, and it was wonderful to sit in his presence and hear this first hand.
Attending and being part of so much of our church life over the years James will be truly missed …his smiling face that could brighten a room, and sound of his unique little laugh.
We can take great comfort in knowing that the Lord ‘our Jamesy’ loved so fervently has greeted him with open arms and welcomed him home.
James passed on 11th July 2019. Our condolences to William, Pauline and the family.
A Service will be held in Fleming & Cuthbert Funeral Home, 141 Mill Road, Ballyclare, BT39 9DZ on Wednesday 17th July at 11.00 a.m., with interment afterwards in Carnmoney Main Cemetery.
