Church Planting

We realise there are places in Down and Dromore where the traditional model of church no longer works well or where there is little Christian witness.

We want to reach these communities with new, culturally relevant churches where people can meet Jesus, grow in Christlikeness and become agents of transformation in our society.

Church Planting Fund

The church planting fund was launched at Bible Week 2013 and nine new churches have been planted to date: Moneyreagh Community Church, Braniel Community Church, Glen Community Church, a youth and children’s ministry in Killough, Killicomaine Community Church, The Gathering, Belfast, St Donard’s Community Church, West Winds Community Church and an outreach to Tullycarnet.

The fund has also contributed towards high quality training for diocesan evangelists.

Our vision – a society transformed

We believe that the gospel of Christ is the single most effective instrument of transformation in our post–conflict society. We have a vision to see:

  • A new generation of children formed in a value system that will bless the community.
  • Families supported and the lonely befriended.
  • Self–worth restored.
  • A generation of young men and women, so transformed by the power of God that they go on to transform their own communities.

Our church planting is intentional, and we are planning for the long term as we commit ourselves, not to projects but to people.
