Our Facebook page is also a great way to see what C.E. Ireland has been getting up to!
Christian Endeavour (C.E.) is a non-denominational movement which seeks to teach and train its members for service in their local church through participation in regular meetings and by taking an active role in group work. Members are encouraged to take the C.E. promise, which promotes commitment to Christ, the local Church and fellow believers.
C.E. is run under the Motto of 'For Christ and the Church' and on four Main Standards;
Confession of Christ | Service for Christ | Fellowship of Christ's people | Loyalty to Christ's Church
We here at C.E. Ireland are convinced that training our young people to serve the church, is the most effective way of sustaining the leadership within the Church, which is such an integral part of Church family life.
At Irish C.E. we have our own Training Convenor, who would be glad to speak with you, advise you on how to start up as C.E. Society and could also come to you and provide training and perhaps even help you run your first meeting. Please contact your local society or use the contact section at the bottom of this page.
Children in Junior CE are trained to take part in and be responsible for their own weekly meeting. This meeting offers an action packed programme in which they “learn by doing”. By this the children are fully involved in the planning, preparing for and the actual participation of the meeting.
Young Peoples in C.E. follows on from Junior C.E.. The young people are trained to take their endeavour further and to take an active role in what they believe. This meeting offers young people the chance to meet and grow closer as a group but also to deepen their beliefs.
Seniors in Ireland are referred to as Comrades of Endeavour. They are groups of people that have served Christian Endeavour faithfully over the years and still wish to have an association with the Movement. They meet regularly together in their various societies.
