  • Movilla (movilla Abbey)


Movilla Abbey Church, Movilla Road, Newtownards (joint with the Methodist Church)


Movilla Abbey is one of the very few churches where Anglicans and Methodists share the building together and much of the worship is joint. We have a joined ministry to the young people of the area with all the casual youth organisations, B.B., Scouts, Guides, etc. During the last year we have held Alpha Courses for those enquiring about the Christian faith in conjunction with the other churches in the Movilla area. Our aim is to reach out and encourage people to share in the love of God and grow together in fellowship and worship, and to grow as a community in faith.


Movilla Abbey Church is situated at the east end of Newtownards. The church is located on the main Movilla Road on the right hand side just after the old ruins of the presvious Abbey. Coming out of the town of Newtownards follow the signs for Donaghadee and Millisle.
