Kirkpatrick Memorial Presbyterian Church

Our Values

We hope that what you read here will help you to begin to get to know us a little better. Of course there’s no substitute for coming to meet us in person. You are very welcome to drop in at any of our church services.

Kirkpatrick Memorial Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, of which there are about 545 congregations throughout Ireland. The congregation was formed in 1914 and the present building was opened in 1923. At the beginning of the 21st century Kirkpatrick Memorial draws its membership from all over East Belfast and beyond.

In our Sunday services we aim to worship God in real and meaningful ways. We aim to teach the Bible in a manner that is clear and relevant to the modern world. There are normally two gatherings of the church family every Sunday. On Sunday mornings we meet at 11.00am. People of all ages come to this service.

A crèche is available for pre–nursery school children. Primary school children begin in church and then go out to Sunday Club and Bible Class. On Sunday evenings we normally meet at 7.00pm, although we allow ourselves flexibility to join with other congregations or use our time in different ways.

After both morning and evening services we provide the congregation with the opportunity to stay behind to enjoy one another’s company over a cup of tea and a biscuit.
