Adult Ministry


Our parish prayer meetings are held monthly (October to June) in the Rectory. Here you will find a place for quietness and reflection where we pray for our parish, the wider community and worldwide events. The meetings have a relaxed atmosphere where people can chose to pray aloud or to listen to the prayers of others.

Our next prayer meeting is on Monday 3rd October at 8.00pm


At different times in the year we host a service that offers prayers for healing and for loss. These services are contemplative and reflective allowing you the opportunity to rest in God’s presence. There is the opportunity at each service for prayer for yourself and for others through different ways such as lighting of candles, written prayers and anointing with oil. These services are open to anyone who is dealing themselves or knows someone else who is dealing with any sort of illness, personal difficult or loss.nnIf you would like prayer for any issue at anytime please contact Janice or Colin.


Our Bible Studies give the opportunity to meet in a small group to share with one another as we seek to deepen our knowledge and understanding of the scriptures. Each Bible Study looks at a particular book of the Bible or issue over a number of weeks. The Bible Study not only offers the opportunity to study God’s word but also helps us to get to know each other better and develop friendships.


Alongside our regular Bible Studies we come together for special studies focused on Advent and Lent. These studies enable us to take a deeper look at particular issues or Scripture as we prepare for Christmas and Easter.

This years Advent course begins on Wednesday 23rd November (8.00 p.m.) and Tuesday 29th (10.00 a.m.)


Our Welcome Lunches offer an informal time for people to get together to strengthen relationships and establish a sense of community right across the group of parishes. By meeting in smaller groups over a meal there is a real sense of togetherness and friendship.nnThe welcome lunches happen every three months or so in the Rectory. We have a a great team who are dedicated to the Biblical principle of hospitality and they provide a wonderful meal for everyone to enjoy.


Our Active Retirement Group has been growing over a number of years giving the opportunity to those who are no longer working to meet together for fun and friendship. The group enjoy trips to different locations on the last Thursday of each month.

Over the past year we have had wonderful days out at a variety of places including the cinema, Donaghmore Work House Museum, Dalkey Castle, and Skerries Mills. We have also in the past enjoyed boat trips, museum and theatre outings. The group offers a very carried programme and each outing is enhanced by a delicious meal together in a variety of locations.

One of the highlights of every year is our annual Christmas Dinner in Dunboyne Castle. A wonderful meal is always followed with a sing song and Secret Santa!

Our first trip of the new season is on Thursday 29th September, details to follow.


Our churches aim to be a welcoming place for people from any Christian denomination, those of other faiths or none. We are delighted to have good relationships with the other Christian denominations throughout our grouping.nnThe most active of these links is in Maynooth where Janice and Colin meet regularly with clergy colleagues from the Roman Catholic and Maynooth Community Churches. Our congregations come together for a numb of events throughout the year including a Prayer Walk and Christmas Carol Service.
