The Church of the Acension, Glebe Road, Annahilt
Magherhamlet Parish Church, Drumgavlin, Ballynahinch


The Church of the Ascension is a vibrant Anglican Parish Church. We welcome all from the area and beyond to worship with us. We meet together both in Church on Sundays and at activities in the Parochial Hall during the week to worship and pray together and to enjoy each others’ company. 

A devoted and dedicated congregation worships in Magherahamlet Parish Church. Membership of the Parish comes from the local community in Magherahamlet, Spa and neighbouring areas. The Parochial organisations at present consist of a vibrant Sunday School and an enthusiastic Mothers’ Union Branch. Local community relations are close.
