About Us

The Present

This is a small friendly Parish in a pleasant rural setting. The service in Loughbrickland each Sunday is at mid–day, in Scarva at 10.30am and in Donaghmore services are held at 09.00am from April to October and a 3.00pm from November to March when we welcome all from the surrounding area to worship with us. A Family Service is held, when on special occasions (ie. Christmas, Easter and Children’s Day) the Sunday School children take part in the Service.


The Future

A tradition of Christian worship has existed in this Parish for over 300 years, Loughbrickland having been a settlement from early times. We wish to maintain and strengthen this tradition by attracting new families to the Parish to strengthen the Church community and increase the bonds of fellowship and Christian community which already exists.

In Donaghmore, our hope and prayer for the future is that as a close family of people we hold fast the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and seek to show God’s love in our lives, so that Christ’s Kingdom may be extended in our hearts and in this place.

In Scarva, we pray that the love of God may continue to be exhibited in the warmth of welcome that is extended to both new comers and regular worshipers.  That all may grow spiritually in a closer walk with the Lord and that we will maintain the support we have for one another.
