What your organisation does

Our organisation endeavours to create environments for members of the public at home and further afield to develop spiritually, mentally, educationally, physically, socially & financially. This is done through various instruments eg. LISBURN CITY CHURCH serves anyone who has an interest in or commitment to the Christian faith, through means of

public worship, prayer meetings, bible teaching & pastoral care. LISBURN FOODBANK through its volunteers helps those in short term financial crisis by supplying food parcels to clients who are referred to us by front line care professionals. The Foodbank also refers clients to other agencies who have the potential to assist them further. CATCH 22 seeks to mentor & assist young offenders with their rehabilitation back into mainstream society through the creation of an office & drop in centre manned by trained counsellors. FITNESS@INSPIRATIONS facilitates those who want to learn how to develop a healthy lifestyle or deal with obesity, esteem or mental health issues.We have developed individual programs in conjunction with social services & local doctors for those with learning difficulties & obesity issues who are fearful of attending a regular gym. CAFE@INSPIRATIONS is a space where during the day different segments of community can come & meet others in a similar interest group. This space has helped many overcome loneliness & isolation. Examples being OAP Book Club, Parkinsons group, McMillan Cancer. In the evenings the cafe is used for hosting The Marriage Course, CAP Money & Addiction relief courses, ladies, mens, youth events, cross cultural evenings etc. At weekends the cafe is used for church related events.
