On Sunday 12 June 2016, a special service of thanksgiving and celebration was held in Christ Church, Bessbrook to mark the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The service included readings and prayers, especially commissioned for this historic occasion.  A commemorative Order of Service was produced with all family households who attended receiving a very special commemorative gift, the book entitled 'The Servant Queen and the King she Serves'.

The service was held during the weekend of national celebrations and included hymns sung at previous services held in Westminster Abbey and St. Paul's Cathedral to mark the Queen's birthday.

After the service, a large number of parishioners attended our 'Bring your own Picnic' style family lunch.  Parishioners brought their own packed lunch, which was held in the Parish Hall. 

A special cake for the occasion was purchased from the Shelbourne Bakery, Newry and everyone who attended had a very memorable and enjoyable day.
