As a thriving Church of Ireland community we enjoy marking the main church festivals according to our Anglican tradition. We are a social and welcoming congregation comprising people at every stage of life. Some have been involved with the parish for sixty years and more, others for six months; people find us in passing, many stay for a lifetime. We are happy to say that this is proof of our ability to meet the needs of the many people who come to Zion Church and we offer warmth, friendship and inclusion to all who come through our doors.
On the second Sunday of almost every month, during the main service at 10.30am, we celebrate Holy Baptism, making Zion an ideal place to attend if you are a young family. If you are planning a family baptism please visit us on any Sunday morning or call Margaret in the Parish Office (01) 406 4730. Baptisms need to be booked in advance as the available dates fill up quickly. Again, this is something that says a great deal about our welcoming community and the special place we make for the young at Zion.
On the first and third Sundays during the school calendar we have Sunday Club for children between the ages of 3-10 years. This is supervised by parent volunteers who have been screened according to the standards of the Church of Ireland Safeguarding Trust.
If you would like to discover more about Zion Parish – if you are simply curious or you are looking for a place to call your spiritual home – please visit the Parish Office (Tuesday and Thursday 9-12 noon or Wednesdays 11-2pm), send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or telephone. I will be delighted to speak with you and arrange for you to meet the Rector, the Rev’d Stephen Farrell, or you may simply like to come and see for yourself what we do on Sunday mornings.
With every good wish and a warm welcome,
