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’.

Church Closure


Unfortunately, Once again, we have to close our Church. It is now closed for two weeks according to guidelines that have been issued, to reduce the spread of Covid-19. Sadly that means that we cannot hold our usual worship services or have the Church open for prayer. In the meantime, if you wish to get in touch, you can by phone or email or through the website or Facebook page as normal.
We have been fortunate in the fact, that we were able to record the Mother’s Union advent service and our own advent service in advance. You can view both those services on our website from Sunday morning for our own worship and 5:00 pm evening for the Mother’s Union advent service.  Remember we may be ‘closed, but we are not shut’.
We will see you all again on Sunday the 13th of December where we will have Holy Communion at all three services (you should register if you wish to attend and your name is not already on the list).

Alternative Christmas Fair & 12 Days Of Christmas Luxury Ballot


Due to the new Covid restrictions, we have had to postpone our plans for the delivery of the orders for food and ballots on 5 December.
We will now be drawing the ballot and delivering the orders and prizes on Friday 18 December.
We would ask everyone baking and making jams, marmalades and chutney to leave them in the church hall on Thursday 17 December between 10 and 11 am.
Those who have kindly offered to deliver and who can still help given the change of date should be at the church hall at 12 noon on Friday 18 December.
If you would like to speak to someone about the food orders, ballot or delivery, please contact Heather or Maureen, or message the Facebook page.
We have had a fantastic response to the event. Thank you so much for all your support.
