New Wine

This year’s New Wine conference will be live online from 8th – 11th July. Each evening we will be showing the live video in Calry allowing anyone locally who wishes to join us to participate as if they were attending the main meetings in the IT.


This Summer21, New Wine Ireland is partnering with International Justice Mission (IJM) to raise awareness on modern day slavery and to raise funds to support a rescue mission.

As part of our digital conference programme, we’ll be launching Fashion for Freedom - an online clothes shop, selling second-hand clothes that YOU have donated.


How can you help? We need clothes, and lots of them! Hats, dresses, coats, jeans, shirts … if you don’t wear it anymore and it’s in a good enough condition that you would consider buying it - please donate it to help us raise a rescue. Then on the first night of our digital conference (8th July) we’ll be launching the Fashion for Freedom store and you’ll be able to browse, donate and bag yourself a new outfit!


Drop off your clothes at the church or Rectory early this week.
