Parish News

Groomsport Parish Church may be small in size, but we are mighty. However, due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have suspended all of our services and activities. It is hoped that from this Sunday (29th March), we will have weekly services published on our website and social media. Come and follow us on Facebook or Instagram, we are easy to find, just type into the search bar ‘Groomsport Parish Church’.

Groomsport Parish Church will be open again for corporate worship on Sunday 2nd August and every Sunday after.  There will be smaller size services from usual and they will be held in the Parish Halls rather than the Church, to enable us to thoroughly clean the hall afterwards.  Please contact the Church office if you have any questions or if you wish to attend.

Temporary Church Closure

24th March 2020

Church and Office Closure

As from 25 March, we have been obliged to close the Church and the Church Office. We want to keep in touch with each other, you will be receiving the occasional telephone call from members of the Select Vestry just to see how you are getting on.

The Parish Office will also be closed, but if you want to contact the Church, you can ring:

The Rector – 02891 464476
Gary Keenan, The Rector’s Church Warden – 07887 706449
Ken Boyd, The Peoples’ Church Warden – 02891 465103

Do keep an eye on our Parish Website 
and our Parish FaceBook page.

Closing the Church is heartbreaking, but take comfort from some words from that lovely evening hymn, “The day thou gavest”;

So be it, Lord; thy throne shall never,
like earth’s proud empires, pass away;
Thy kingdom stands, and grows for ever,
till all thy creatures own thy sway.
