Easter Dawn Service

Some years there has been a Presbytery Easter dawn service at Grianan of Aileach Fort, Donegal (there will not be a service at Easter 2012) . The young people of Fahan Youth Fellowship provided breakfast after one service in Fahan Presbyterian Church Hall. The early morning outdoor service at this historic site with stunning panoramic views has proven to be very popular.

Easter Dawn Service Breakfast, Fahan  24-04-11
A fried breakfast is provided in Fahan Presbyterian Church Hall after the mountain top Easter Dawn Service.

An early morning start for the catering team

An early start for the band of willing helpers. It will be a busy morning because it will be time for Church by the time all the dishes are washed and Hall cleared up.

Below is one comment:
Easter Sunday 2011, 6.45 a.m.
Went to my first Easter Dawn Service this morning, on top of a hill in County Donegal, with a crowd of farmers (!) from Fahan Church. A lovely simple morning: a few hymns, a couple of readings and prayers. Then we all went back to their church to have bacon and sausage baps and fruit for breakfast. Mmmm. Really enjoyed the time I spent with the guys from Fahan today. There’s something about country churches. I really like them. They’re so close-knit. It’s a lovely atmosphere. Everybody knows everybody, and more importantly, everybody pulls for everybody. I think city churches (and all of us, I s’pose) could learn a lot from country churches.

“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no-one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends…You did not choose me, but I chose you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15: 12,13,16,17
