Conference, September 23rd, Killyhevlin Hotel

We have been very fortunate to receive support from Fermanagh and Omagh Council, allowing us to hold a conference on Friday September 23rd at the Killyhevlin Hotel, Enniskillen (please note change of venue from previous years).

The title of the conference will be Together: Embracing And Celebrating Our Global Citizenship. The main speaker will be Dr Johnston McMaster and he will focus upon the issues of our future in the context of Brexit, the moral foundations of the European Union, the global challenges of ‘Easternisation’, the principle of the common good and the need for continuous reform.

Many, probably most of you will know Johnston and his inspiring, challenging and always enjoyable conversation. The conference will begin at 10am and finish at 4pm, with lunch included. It is free of charge but booking is essential for catering purposes: please contact Eileen Gallagher  by Monday 19th September.

 

 

Seminars, October 6th – November 3rd

Our series of Autumn Seminars, again with Dr Johnston McMaster, will continue this year with the theme of What does it mean to be truly human? These will take place on Thursday evenings from 8pm until 10pm, beginning on October 6th and running until November 3rd. The venue this year is the Riverview Room of the Bridge Centre (the hall at the Presbyterian Church) East Bridge Street, Enniskillen. The seminars are free of charge and all are very welcome.

 

 

AGM, November 17th

Our AGM is planned this year for the evening of Thursday 17th November, at the Bridge Centre, with guest speaker Dr Gladys Ganiel, whose new book, Transforming Post-Catholic Ireland, includes a chapter about the Fermanagh Churches Forum.
