Our Kind of People
After the success of the exhibtion in Monkstown the Our Kind of People Exhibition is moving into some new terrain. The Exhibition is going to be run in Rathcoole from the 25th until the 29th of November 2007.
In the new year the Our Kind of People Exhibition will move into the Down and Dromore diocese in Craigavon. St Saviour's in Drumgor are going to run an exhibition in early 2008.

A significant amount of good work is being done by clergy and parishes in loyalist communities. A number of Hard Gospel events have been designed to affirm and encourage this.
Clergy Forums - Church of Ireland and the Loyalist Community
Clergy forums have been held for clergy in the dioceses of Connor and Down & Dromore. The purpose was:
- To reflect on issues facing marginalised loyalist communities within each diocese.
- To discuss work that clergy have already developed within the loyalist community.
- To identify key issues in marginalised loyalist communities that the Church of Ireland can further engage with.
The keynote speaker at each forum was Professor Steve Bruce. He is a well know author and academic. His most recent work is 'Paisley: religion and politics in Northern Ireland'.
