Visiting our Church

First visit

If it's your first time visiting the Church please make yourself known to the greeters at the door. 

Pedestrian Access to the church is from Frances Street, or if you arrive 15-20 minutes early there is usually ample parking to the rear of the church building. Check out the Contact Us page for directions.  

Visiting Newtownards? Or new to the area?

Visitors are always welcome to any of the events in our calendar. A good way to meet us is to come along to our Sunday Morning Service, however if you'd prefer to meet and chat in a less formal environment, Cafe First on a Saturday morning offers a great opportunity to meet with our members and find out more about what our Church has to offer.
