Here are a few things you might like to know:

  • The Bible Week is completely free so don’t worry about an entrance fee!
  • You don’t need to worship in the Diocese of Down and Dromore or even the Church of Ireland to attend. All are welcome
  • Do bring a Bible but the Bible passages will be available in a new translation by Tom Wright (The New Testament for Everyone)
  • The evening should last approximately 2 hours


Prayer ministry will be available towards the end of each evening at the front of the church in the chancel and to the left. Please avail of the opportunity to receive prayer for yourself or someone known to you. The Prayer Team are trained, experienced, discreet and considerate. Most importantly, they will themselves have spent time in prayer before the evening begins.
