Former Student’s Talk on 1859 Ulster Revival

Having carried out an examination of the place of prayer in the Ulster Revival of 1859 for her M.A. dissertation taken through KEDS, Donna Orr (now an Associate Tutor at the school) has been asked to give an historical talk on this revival for Libraries N.I. at the end of October. A good number of attendees is expected, and Donna requests our prayers, particularly that although this is essentially a historical talk, many will be encouraged to seek and pray for a similar revival in Northern Ireland at this time.

For any KEDS students who live in Northern Ireland and would like to attend, the talk takes place on Thursday, 24 October 2013 in Greenisland Library, Carrickfergus at 6.30 p.m. Admission is free, but booking is advised.
