Proof that freedom from addiction is possible will be revealed in Ballymena on March 9.

‘Evidence’ of lives set free will be given at a special meeting at Victory Praise Community Church, (Pennybridge) on March 9 from 7.30pm

It is part of the wider global organisation of the same name which was set up by John Wilkerson in Brooklyn 50 years ago to reach gang members, drug addicts and alcoholics with the life­ changing message of Jesus Christ.

A spokesperson for the Belfast branch, said: “It was on February 2008 that Teen Challenge began a street and

bus ministry to help hurting people in Belfast. We now take our bus to drug addicts and alcoholics and offer them food, refreshments, chat and practical help. But above all we offer them the person of Christ.”
