Knockbreda Parish offers you a warm welcome to a loving Christian family where a variety of worship styles are catered for.
Our family friendly service is The Service Of The Word beginning at 10am, with children leaving part way through the service for Sunday School. A creche facility is available for the very young. This is a more relaxed style of worship.
We offer traditional Anglican worship including chanting at 11.30am.
Informal evening services are held in the church hall, with time afterwards for fellowship over a cuppa and traybake.
Home groups are active for regular Bible study and there is a range of organisations for adults and young people.
Knockbreda Parish is home to a lively missionary interest, particularly in Uganda, Rwanda and South America.
Everyone is welcome!
We have a desire to incorporate more fully those on the fringe of parish life and those who only have a nominal connection. We hope to provide opportunities for families to build meaningful relationships that provide the basis for mutual caring and support. We want to deepen the desire for worship, prayer and Bible study to equip parishioners for effective Christian witness.
