Update on Pastor McConnell

At each of our services at Whitewell we have been giving an update on pastor McConnell’s condition but in case you’ve missed those announcements here is a post for our website.

As many are aware, Pastor McConnell is now in his 7th week of care in the Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. Despite the best efforts of the medical staff, pastor’s health condition deteriorated to the point where he is now only receiving palliative care. Sadly from a human perspective we know that the time of his departure is at hand and we pray that the Lord will allow his servant to depart in peace. He has truly run a great race, kept the faith and fought the good fight. We urge you to remember him in your prayers along with his family circle, especially Mrs McConnell and his two daughters, Linda and Julie.
