Worship & Wedges for Epiphany

There will be an informal, all-age act of worship on Sunday, January 4th, at 6 pm in the Parish Centre, with Epiphany as its theme, led by our intern deacon, Rev Abigail Sines, with contemporary music from the Music Group led by Nathan Barrett. Sausages and potato wedges are served afterwards.
There will also be an evening service of Holy Communion in the church at 7pm as usual.

Appeal for food gifts on Christmas Day

On Christmas morning, at our 10.30am service, young people are invited to bring some non-perishable food items to be placed under the Christmas tree as gifts for those who are homeless or suffering as a result of food poverty.  Immediately after Christmas these will be brought to the Dining Room in Dun Laoghaire. Meanwhile, the First Eucharist of Christmas will start at 11.30pm on Christmas Eve.

Nine Lessons and Carols by candlelight

One of the most atmospheric services of the year, the Nine Lessons and Carols by candlelight takes place this Sunday evening, December 21st, at 7pm.  All welcome. Mulled wine and mince pies in the Parish Centre afterwards.
In the morning, at 10.30am, angels and shepherds will abound at the all-age Nativity Service  with Sunday Club and the Music Group.
