Dromore Cathedral has been at the heart of Dromore for centuries. The Cathedral seeks to serve the community by bringing Christ’s compassion, love and hope of salvation to people of all ages. Our mission is to grow God’s Kingdom by being a centre of worship, compassion, healing and outreach to everyone in our community. Dromore Cathedral stands ready to teach, challenge, care and love each person no matter where they find themselves on their journey.

The Cathedral aims to provide meaningful worship for people of all ages through a variety of services.

Each Sunday;

–  we celebrate early morning Holy Communion

– have contemporary worship at Cathedral Praise (incorporating Kingdom Kids Sunday School, except on the 4th Sunday of the month when we join together for our Family Service);

– Have a monthly Church Family Service (on the 4th Sunday of the month);

– have Traditional Morning Worship (Morning Prayer or Service of the Word) using the Book of Common Prayer (except on the 4th Sunday of the month when we join together for our Family Service);
