Album made at special site A LANDMARk album has been recorded live during a worship event held at St Patrick's Cathedral, Armagh - a site considered the 'spiritual capital' of all Ireland.

It was in Armagh, on the site where the cathedral now stands, that St Patrick, the 'apostle of Ireland', originally built his missionary base in the fifth century.

Over 1,500 years later, on this very site, songwriter Robin Mark led over 600 in a powerful time of worship.

And the event, recorded by Hosanna! Music, has now been released on a CD/cassette album 'Come Heal This Land'.

The album contains seven songs written by Mark, known for penning 'All For Jesus' and 'When It's All Been Said and Done'. Previously Robin Mark appeared on 'Revival in Belfast' which has sold over 223,000 units worldwide.

Visitors from north America THERE was great excitement at Portstewart Presbyterian Church when the Summerserve team arrived. The team, from Texas, West Virginia and Ontario, Canada, spent two weeks in the Co Londonderry town.
