200th Anniversary of the Consecration of the Church for Worship
Sunday 26th June 2016 is the closest Sunday to the 200th Anniversary of the Consecration of the current Church building for worship, the Consecration having been on 28th June 1816.
While in command of 9th (Service) Battalion, Princess Victoria’s (Royal Irish Fusiliers), Lieutenant Colonel Stewart Blacker wrote to his wife, Eva, almost every day. The letters were relatively uncensored and provide a fascinating insight into the life of a commanding officer in the front line and of the actions of his Battalion. Between 1921 and 1924 extracts from his letters were reproduced in the magazine of Seagoe Parish Church, Portadown in chapters titled ‘With The ‘Ninth’ In France‘.
