St. John’s Church Dromara is a beautiful building inside and out, but that’s not what makes it special to so many of the congregation. What makes it special are the people themselves, who accept into their number people of different levels of faith knowing that God loves each and every one of us. 

Alongside this togetherness, there are opportunities to experience fellowship in Badminton,  Bible Study and Mothers Union. Why not come and explore for yourself? Come and see! You will be welcomed with Christian love. 

Grouped with Dromara is Garvaghy Parish Church, a small church situated in the middle of the beautiful rolling Dromara hills. The church building may be small in size but the people of Garvaghy have big hearts full of love for the Lord Jesus and welcome newcomers with open arms. Garvaghy parishioners are very musically talented and artistically creative.

There are now just over fifty families linked to the Garvaghy church and through their faithfulness, God’s work continues to flourish in this rural County Down parish. Come and join us, you won’t be disappointed.
