The service will include special music by the Cloughjordan Community Choir, under the direction of John Armitage and Rev Brian Griffin will conduct the service. Members of the Methodist Church and from the wider community took part, including new residents of the Eco Village Cloughjordan.

Family and friends around the world can share in this experience through the world wide web: It is important to share this information. We in Ireland are privileged to be able to participate in a weekly transmission of Christian worship through television and radio and we take this opportunity to applaud the team at RTE who managed and directed us through this service in order to reach the people who would not be able to participate in public worship. The ‘set’ was beautifully decorated and the hospitality of the team was warm and encouraging.
