What your organisation does

Eagle Fellowship has seven branches, meeting across Northern Ireland on a monthly basis. Each branch provides a range of activities for those attending, including games, quizzes, outings and a biblical epilogue. There is also an annual Eagles holiday, catering for 40-45 disabled people, providing them with a valued opportunity to spend time in a

social setting away from their homes and families. A range of challenging and fulfilling activities are provided, and daily Christian meetings are held including a time of worship and a talk from a guest speaker.
