Parish Activities - Longford Group Church of Ireland

Sunday Worship is an important part of the Parish week and where everyone finds a warm welcome. It is a time where we take a break from busy lives and pause to spend time in the company of God and fellow disciples of Christ. During our services we use the book of Common Prayer, the Church Hymnal and other resources. At these services we are all age focussed and love to welcome all.
We love gathering around the Bible for deeper conversation and to grow in God’s word. Bible Study meets year round with a small break during the summer. Bible Study is great for all levels of bible knowledge and understanding. We aim to deepen our joy and love for the bible whilst enjoying fellowship and company with one another. If you would like to participate or gain further information on Bible Study, please contact Rev. Simon.

Babble and Play is our parents/carers and toddlers group that provides a safe and fun space for little one's to play while the adults can sit and enjoy a cuppa and a chat. We meet every other Wednesday in the Methodist Church Hall on Battery Road (N39 W8X0) from 10 - 11.30am.

If you would like to come along, get involved, or know somebody who may benefit from this group, please make contact.

Vision: Our vision is of a world where God's love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships.
Mission: To demonstrate the Christian faith in action by the transformation of communities worldwide through the nurture of the family in its many forms.

Our members are not all mothers, or even all women, but are single, married, parents, grandparents or young adults who are just beginning to express their social conscience. For all 4.1 million members in 83 countries what Mothers' Union provides is a network through which they can serve Christ in their own community through prayer, financial support and actively working at grassroots level in programmes that meet local needs.

Mother's Union is continuing to find creative ways to interact through these times.
