Area Deanery of Loughview


  • Holywood St Philip & St James

St. Philip & St. James, Church Road, Holywood


Holywood Parish is a ‘down to earth’ church family made up of all ages.  Our ‘holystic’ (well this is ‘Holy’wood!) approach means that we offers opportunities to gather together for prayer and worship every day of the week as well as a range of recreational groups and caring ministries as we serve one another and seek to reach out to the wider community.  There are dedicated teams of staff and volunteers delivering programmes from toddlers through to seniors.  Holywood Parish assures you of a warm welcome.


Holywood is on the southern shore of Belfast Lough, five miles from the city centre. From the crossroads in the centre of Holywood (by the Maypole) travel a quarter of a mile in the direction away from the Lough up Church Road. Holywood Parish Church is on the right set in its own garden and lawns.
