About Us

The Present

Set in the beautiful countryside in County Down you will find St. James’s and St. John’s. We seek to live as the family of God in our rural setting. As a church we seek to worship God and witness to our local community. Pastoral care is a strong priority in our parish. A warm welcome awaits you at both our churches!

The Future

Our vision is that the light of God’s Word would shine brightly in our neighbourhood and beyond. In our church programme we seek to cater for the spiritual needs of young and old. Two active Sunday Schools, a vibrant Mother’s Union and a prayer group that prays for the sick supplement our Sunday services and are a vital part of our strategy for mission.
