The Braeded Chord (aka Sharon and Doris) have been invited to minister with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) using their Discipleship Training Center as a base in Rostrevor, Newry, Northern Ireland. We are being asked to do a variety of tasks to help build up their local team as well as outreach to the community. Some activities:-
Lead worship for staff and trainees at An Cuan missionary base, one hour, perhaps with staff and trainee musicians joining in.
Lead worship for Harbour service at An Cuan, which is open to the public, 30 minutes, perhaps with other musicians joining in.
Participate in traditional Irish session at The Corner House Bar, a very fun and informal jam, where guests can play along with the group and also present a song or two of their choosing. A great immersion in Irish culture.
Featured performers at monthly open mic at An Cuan,
At An Cuan, a free concert open to the public.
Worship/music clinics at An Cuan, open to the public.
There may be other activities, including worshipping together or participating as musicians at a local church on Sunday.
Our dates will be March 28 to April 8. We will be staying with the team in their guesthouse and taking all our meals with them, so will be responsible only for our air travel and any incidentals we need to prepare for the trip. Our airfare costs are over $700 per person.
We would be grateful if Church of the Word would consider being a sponsor, and would see us as extending Church of the Word’s mission to Northern Ireland! For our members Make a check out to ‘Church of the Word’ and Designate “Braeded Chord – Mission Trip”
Thank you for your prayerful consideration;
