"Go into all the world and proclaim

the gospel to the whole creation. "

Mark 16:15

 The church has an awesome message. 

Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them. I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep."  John 10:7-11. 

To not tell others this Good News would be selfish.  That is why we as a church support missionary organisations, and that is why we encourage our members to be involved in summer outreach teams.

Dundalk Presbyterian Church
Statistically, Northern Ireland is one of the most evangelised nations in Europe and the Republic of Ireland is one of the least.  Dundalk has around 40, 000 people living in it and has just one Presbyterian Church.  As a congregation we have been pleased to be able to partner with Dundalk on a number of occasions; some of our young folk have led praise at their Harvest Services and their minister Rev Jonathan Porter has conducted worship at our Harvest Service.  Last year a team from 1st Dromara held a Bible Club there which was a blessing for all involved.  Click here for a video highlighting the Bible Club
