About

The average congregation in Greyabbey numbers 45 on a Sunday morning, with the numbers rising for the monthly family service. The worship of the church is conducted using the contemporary language series of the BCP. The congregation share a weekly Bible Study, and a Wednesday morning, with Holy Trinity Kircubbin, and also an evening Prayer and Study Group at Holy Trinity. Greyabbey Parish is looking to build a new hall close to the church.

Holy Trinity is a small but vibrant church community, with an active Sunday School which meets in the Church room below the worship area. Together with St. Saviours, the church runs a Prayer and Study Group, a Bible Study and a small but enthusiastic choir. The services are currently contemporary language Prayer Book services, together with a monthly family service (Service of the Word).

In the last three years a new parish centre has been built in the grounds of the Ballyphilip Church, which has opened up cross community work. There is now cross community Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Mum’s and Toddler Group, bowling club two evenings per week, a martial arts class, and the local Integrated Primary School use the New Parish Centre for weekly activities. The parish Mother’s Union and Historical Society also use this facility. Within the last two years a cross community Bible Evening has been taking place every two weeks in the new Parish Centre.
