Our latest newsletter is available here.

It was announced on Thursday 7th January that in church services and events are now cancelled until the 6th February.

Please see the What’s On This Month Page to access information about online services for Sundays and midweek meetings- including the Wednesday evening prayer meetings and Parish Fellowship on Monday evenings.

Please see below for guidance on Pastoral services during this period of increased restrictions.

Face Coverings at Services in the Parish of Holywood when services resume.

Guidance from the Executive and the Diocese of Down and Dromore requires worshippers to wear face coverings at all church services.

We would therefore ask all those attending services to bring and wear a mask or other suitable face covering. Stewards will be on hand to remind you as you arrive.

Are there any exemptions?

Those under 13 are not required to wear face masks (but are welcome to do so). Those who have a medical exemption will not be required to wear a face covering.

Those leading services (liturgically and musically) will not wear masks when they are able to stay socially distant from the rest of the congregation.

Thank you for your help in this.

We care about worshipping together:
We care about one another.

Morning services are be streamed on the live page of this site and on our YouTube Channel and facebook page.

If you are considering coming to services once again please ensure that you do not travel to Church if you have recently experienced any COVID19 symptoms- temperature, persistent cough or loss/change in your sense of taste and/or smell.

Thank you to the Select Vestry, Volunteer stewards and cleaners who make it possible for us to continue to operate services. If you would like to help with these teams please let us know by contacting the parish office.

Pastoral ministry:

Please contact the parish office if you would like to speak with the clergy, youth or children’s staff team members.

Funerals: If you have been bereaved please contact the clergy as soon as possible. Services may still happen in the Parish Church but with restricted numbers.

Groceries and other essentials for Storehouse can be brought to Sunday services and left in the Church or Parish Centre. We operate Storehouse Sunday on the 2nd Sunday of each month.
