Embrace Socials was officially established in the Spring of 2012.
The founding members - Stephen Andrews, Ian Morrow & Mark Currie had been involved in providing socials & ceilidhs since the early 2000's across Northern Ireland. The reason behind establishing the group was to provide a range of Christian based events for all ages.
The group's very first endevour however was not related to socials or ceilidhs, it was to take on a Monthly Youth Rally held in Portadown Town Hall. This monthly meeting had commenced in September 2011 under the banner of Witness NI, which was an outreach group run by one of our founding members - Ian Morrow.
After the Youth Rally's future had been secured, we undertook our very first social in the Jethro Centre, Lurgan. While we were nervous if any one would turn up or not, the night turned out to be a great success, with crowds bigger than we could have ever imagined, we knew then we could keep this venture going for a while longer.
Since then we have toured up and down the country providing over 1000 events to date, with locations ranging from Community, Church & Orange Halls, to Hotels, Tents & even Fields. The range of events that we continue to cover going forward can be split into the following five headings;
• Wedding Parties • Praise & Worship Events • Family & Church Events
• Fundraising Events • Birthday Parties •
If your event is not covered under any of these headings, please do get in touch as we can tailor ourselves to suit your requirements.
