Belfast HelpCentre open for private prayers during lockdown

The UCKG HelpCentre at 2a Templemore Street, Belfast is now closed for public services of prayer, and reopens on Friday 11 December in compliance with the 14 day circuit-breaker lockdown currently in force in Northern Ireland.

During this time private prayer is allowed within the church building and members of the congregation and the general public are welcome to attend a full programme of streamed services, which are detailed below.

Pastor Marco, who leads the HelpCentre in Belfast said: “It is really important that everyone sticks rigidly to the lockdown rules that are in place to reduce transmission of COVID-19. At the same time, our faith will help to see us through, and a good way to demonstrate that faith is by sharing in online worship.”

The schedule of services for 27 November – 11 December is as follows:

  • Monday – Independence Project (prayer for economic security)
    10am and 7.30pm via Zoom
  • Tuesday – Healing Day
    7.30pm via Zoom
