Set in the beautiful countryside in County Down you will find St. James’s and St. John’s. We seek to live as the family of God in our rural setting. As a church we seek to worship God and witness to our local community. Pastoral care is a strong priority in our parish. A warm welcome awaits you at both our churches!


St. James’s Lower Kilwarlin: St. James’s Church is situated on the Lany Road which is on the main Hillsborough to Moira Road. It can be accessed form the main Belfast to Dublin Road (the A1) or from Moira coming from the opposite direction. St. John’s Upper Kilwarlin is situated between Hillsborough and Moira.

You proceed along the Ballygowan Road before turning into St. John’s Road where the church is situated. You can access the Ballygowan Road coming in the opposite direction from Moira or Magheralin.
