Corrymeela Events


Auction of Promises

05 Oct 2019
Ballycastle Centre


BannerAt our October Community Weekend, Corrymeela will be holding an auction of promises. Saturday 5 October, 7pm 

If you’ve never taken part in one of these you may not know how well they serve to build relationships and connect people together.

In an auction of promises, people offer a service or an event, an item or their time –– and in the process meaningful encounters take place. This is a fantastic way to build community by getting to know one another better and to meet folks from the wider community who will be invited to come along. Funds raised will be put towards the wastewater refurbishment project at the Centre and donated to the Ballycastle Foodbank.
