Kilmore team brings building back to life

A team from Kilmore Parish Church have been doing some DIY ahead of their Easter Mission to the communities of Kilmore and Crossgar. 

They have been hard at work in the Old Post Office, Kilmore (right) cleaning and painting to get it ready to host a Pop–up Café. 

The parish has also ‘teased’ the mission with a series of banners on the building which have aroused some interest.


The Old Post Office had been the centre of community life in Kilmore for many years. It was always more than just the local Post Office or village shop – somewhere you could be assured of help or support if you needed it. It was this well–established and recognised community focus that made it the natural choice as the central venue for the Easter Mission. The locals are delighted to see the doors open again.

The Pop–up Café will be open between 10.00 am and 2.00 pm Monday to Friday and serving tea, real coffee from ‘Drop Hopper’, scones and jam. All free!

The Café will also host a children’s story time at 10.30 am each day. Parents can join their children in hearing the Easter story told over five days with a different craft activity each time.
