‘Love one another as I have loved you’
We are a church for the whole community, it doesn’t matter what you wear or where you sit, come just as you are, the service usually lasts about an hour and often folks stay behind for a chat afterwards, sometimes over a cup of tea in the church hall. If you haven’t been to church for a while or perhaps have never been through our doors you are most welcome and are invited with open arms to come and share with us on a Sunday morning at 10am. Rostrevor Presbyterian Church is a vibrant, open and friendly congregation that seeks to be a witness to the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, to proclaim that Christ died on the cross yet rose from the tomb to save those who would follow him from their sin. This salvation gives a new purpose in life, to live with fulfilment and joy while working together as brothers and sisters in the Lord to honour and glorify God. There are also lots of other opportunities to share and get involved, at all our events you will find a warm greeting and love in the name of Jesus. We look forward to seeing you soon!
At Rostrevor Presbyterian you will find a place that seeks to be a traditional church, being faithful to our past, yet you will also find a place that is open and forward thinking. Desiring the best of old and the best of new in our service of the Lord.
Rostrevor Presbyterian Church has been in existence for over 150 years being established in 1850. The late Dr Henry Cooke who was present at the laying of the foundation stone of Rostrevor Church commented that “the Church to be erected here will be frequented by some to whom it will be a well of life, it will be seen and passed by multitudes who will never enter within its walls, but even to these also the fabric itself will not fail to express by its very presence among them a continued witness to God, to His Word and to the value of His Holy ordinance”.
The meeting house as it is now is an interesting yet simple building, with attractive architecture and beautifully woven tweed upholstery giving the place a ‘golden glow’. There is a very useful multipurpose hall within the enclosed grounds which is used for various groups in the local community. While the congregation has faced decline, it remains a vibrant and warm fellowship that has great hopes for the future, excited about what God is going to do in the lives of its members and the area around.
