[Befast Telegraph] The bulky package aroused suspicion when it arrived at the north Belfast church yesterday.
It has been at the centre of a storm over a controversial sermon during which Pastor James McConnell slammed Islam as “Satanic” and a religion “spawned in Hell”.
Police were called the church yesterday afternoon.
It is understood the package did not contain anything explosive but rather a sinister message.
That included a black rose, a joker card from a pack of cards as well as a message which read, “you will reap what you sow”.
This incident follows a hacking attack on the church website last week.
In a statement the church said a group called Izzah Hackers, whom it claimed were Islamic hackers, took down their website.
It particularly affected webstreams of services on the site. The church said it put into place a number of pieces of technology to deal with the disruption.
