Lisburn Community Choir
Well it has been another busy year. I can't believe how much the choir has grown over the last three years. We had a registration of 120 adult members in September and around 35 kids. God has really blessed the choirs and there is always a real positive family atmosphere every Monday night, both in the coffee shop and during the rehearsal. Thanks to the Cathedral for opening the wonderful building up for us to use!
CAP Money Course at Lisburn Cathedral
January is a great time to take a fresh look at your finances and make a plan for the year ahead. Lots of people are keen to manage their money, but often don’t have the basic skills, so this course is a really effective place to start.
Even if you went a bit overboard at Christmas, it’s not too late to do something now about your financial situation. With the help of the CAP Money Course, we have seen people back in the black and start saving - sometimes for the first time in their lives.

Drill head got stuck in the hole earlier but we are determined to get the people water. Please pray for success – see picture of a pig enjoying the mud, Keith waking up for another hard day’s work, Mark on the rig and a little boy watching.

Latest update from Burkino Faso..(4 December)
We started to drill in Tiekuy (pronounced Cheque-wee) on Tuesday and completed on third attempt late on Thursday night.
On Friday afternoon we arrived in Bumbiele (Spelling still to be confirmed!) and started on our third well (particularly muddy). Hope to finish it on Monday.
On Saturday we went back to Ouagadougou for a break and Church on Sunday. Please pray for success as we start drilling again in the morning Tim, Denis and Keith
latest update from Burkino Faso.. (30th November)
Today was a huge success. We had to change drilling location in Tiekuy due to a muddy hole. At the second location in the village, we were making good progress, when a hammer fell down the well, rendering it unuseable. After speaking with the Church Pastor, whose congregation met to pray, we filled in the hole and started again five yards away - this time producing a 800 gallons per hour well at a depth of 165ft. Everyone in village (and on the team) delighted. Provided with a goat for our efforts...
Update from Friends in Action team - Tim, Denis & Keith
Three Lisburn Cathedral parishioners Denis Fullerton, Keith Forsythe and Tim Flanagan flew to Burkina Faso at the end of November to join the Friends In Action well drilling team led by Mark Collier and Tim Wilson. After Sunday lunch with the Colliers, we headed for the Koudougou area over three hours drive away.
