Gorey Churches Together host 10th ladies breakfast

Fintan Lambe

The tenth anniversary Gorey Churches Together ladies' breakfast attracted a larger than usual attendance.

Some 101 locals sat down to a tasty breakfast in the Leinster suite at the Ashdown Park Hotel in Gorey.

Gorey Churches Together includes representatives from St Michael's Church, Christ Church and the Christ Church union of parishes, Gorey Methodist Church, Gorey Christian Assembly, and the Calvary Church, and the breakfast was all about 'women empowering women.'

Guest speaker was Wendy Johnston from Belfast, who gave a new insight into Biblical stories.

The ladies were especially delighted to welcome back founder member Ruth Wilson. The event also included music by Aileen and Áine Kennedy, and Julie from Christianbooks.ie was present with a book stall.

Sincere thanks went to the Ashdown Park Hotel, and to those who attended, and the organisers hope they were inspired and encouraged.
