How do we Worship?

Our aim is to worship God according to the pattern of the New Testament churches. We seek to give God the kind of worship that He wants rather than doing our own thing and hoping that God approves.

Our church building is of a simple design and deliberately so, in order that there be nothing to distract us from the worship of God. We listen to what God says to us through the public reading of the Bible and our minister's sermon which is always aimed as showing us the meaning and relevance of what has been read. We sing praise to God using the psalms of the Bible and sing without musical accompaniment, believing that this was the way Christians worshipped in the days of the apostles. We also pray to God, thanking Him for His goodness to us, confessing our sin and bringing Him our requests.

Where do our Roots lie?

Our roots go back to seventeenth century Scotland where various successive kings sought to take control of the Scottish Church by proclaiming themselves to be its head.

A body of Christians who became known as Covenanters refused to acknowledge the king as head of the Church, believing that this role belongs to Christ alone. They were persecuted for their loyalty to Jesus and many of them came to the North of Ireland where they settled and established congregations under the title of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Ireland.

Today there are still a couple of Reformed Presbyterian Churches in Scotland. We have churches also in North America, Australia, Japan and Cyprus and Reformed Presbyterians are active in mission work in France and in Sudan. Within the island of Ireland we have 39 locations where people meet regularly for worship, seven of them being in the Republic of Ireland.
