The first broadcast is scheduled to commence at 10.15. If you join us early, you will see some preparation slides and bible verses for the 5 minutes before 10.30. The service will start promptly at 10.30. You can still add comments during this broadcast.
If you are watching after the first broadcast, anytime after 11.15 on Wednesday, you will be able to move forward through the pre-service preparation, if you wish. 

Online Killyleagh Parish Church services available from 3rd May via a local number phone call.

Since our services went online on Mother’s Day, those without internet have been excluded from worshipping with us. Now they can, by dialing a local phone number to hear an audio of the service.

They can dial anytime after 11.30 on Sundays and 10.30 on Wednesdays. It’s not a problem if they are late.

A welcome message will be heard immediately. Then there will be around 30 seconds of silence before the service begins. So hold on!

The number to dial is: 02891 249440

Sunday Service

Sunday is Pentecost, the day when the Holy Spirit inspired the early Jesus followers to lay down the roots of the Christian Church. We focus on the work of the Holy Spirit today and in every age.

Our service today will start at 11.30am (UK time) and can be accessed by clicking the link below

We have timed the first broadcast to commence at 11.15. There’ll be a still slide of the church and then 5 minutes of moving slides with bible verses to prepare yourself to worship.

If you are watching after the first broadcast, basically anytime after 12.30 on Sunday, there will be a still slide for 8 minutes, followed by 5 minutes pre-service material before the service proper starts. To avoid waiting, you can move forward to around 13 minutes in the production.

10 Days of Prayer

Between Ascension Day today and Pentecost on Sunday 31st May, you are encouraged to take part in the 10 Days of Prayer by using the resources provided by Bishop David and the Diocese.

“I know it’s been a long time coming. I am hugely optimistic about the future, which clearly will have a different feel to the past, though one thing is for sure, God remains faithful and never changes.  

Our worship of him and desire to represent Jesus here in this place must never change, except to increase.”

Hello and Welcome
