Church Music Dublin is an agency of the diocese of Dublin and Glendalough which aims to support music in local churches by providing information and training and by fostering a sense of community among musicians. In particular it runs a three year course in church music skills leading to the award of the Archbishop of Dublin’s Certificate in Church Music, it published a magazine, Soundboard, three times a year, and provides information on a wide range of topics, chiefly through its website.

Archbishop Eames will be the special speaker at a service of divine healing in St. Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast on Monday evening 8p.m. He will speak on ‘Inner Peace and Community Peace’. The theme is very relevant because there are often community tensions at this time of year. Archbishop Eames has been chosen to speak because of his considerable involvement in the work of peace and reconciliation since the early years of the Troubles. There will be an opportunity to receive personal prayer for healing and a blessing with oil at the service which will be led by Brother David Jardine, Director of Divine Healing Ministries with the West Church, Bangor, Music Group.

Those who have not yet purchased a copy of the ‘The Church of Ireland. An Illustrated History’, edited by Claude Costacalde and Brian Walker and published by Booklink which was published late last year may be moved to do so by a recent review. Writing in Books Ireland, John Kirkcaldy concluded that ‘The competition for the best–produced Irish history book for 2014 is over. This is a book that would make any coffee table proud. It is superbly illustrated … and written by various hands in clear, jargon free English’. At €30 it is a steal.
