About Us

Our Story

In the late 1960s a number of families came together to start a Christian community in Dublin. In evangelical terms, we were planting a church by spreading the gospel. We were supported in our work by several teams of young people who came for one or two years; their contribution was invaluable. From the beginning we have been committed to faithfully teaching the word of God, believing this to be the apostolic practice. What we are about is best expressed in the words of the Apostle Paul, ‘He [Jesus] is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.’ And we have witnessed the work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of the members.

The 1990s provided an opportunity for us to do gospel work in India. Since then, we have been actively involved in planting churches, undertaking charitable projects and making regular visits to encourage those growing congregations.

As we look to the future we intend to continue practicing our faithful commitment to the Lord and to the ministry of the word.

Our Mission

As a church we are committed to what the Bible says because we believe it to be the inspired word of God.

We want our congregation to be everything God would have us to be. We are multi-cultural, embracing the diversity found among the people of God. There is room for every believer: the weak, the strong, the struggler, the discouraged and the doubter. We believe we belong together because we belong to God.

We maintain a teaching programme of the highest standard, believing that spiritual maturity comes through the teaching ministry God has entrusted to the church. Every believer has been gifted by God for the benefit of the body of Christ.

We encourage the development of those gifts and provide opportunity for them to be used in the service of God. We worship God together each Sunday. Worship is an essential part of our Christian life and is taken seriously.

We worship, not to entertain, not to impress our visitors and not to make ourselves feel good; our worship is centred on God, who alone is worthy of all we offer him.
