Reformation Fathers and Sons Trip

David Johnstone and David Martin, two fathers from Lurgan Free Presbyterian Church, organised a two-day 'Reformation Father and Son Trip' to Castle Ward, Co. Down, Northern Ireland. This extremely scenic park, with a variety of suitable places of interest, enabled them to move to different locations for the purpose of re-enacting, then discussing key points in Luther’s life.
