"Just as each of us has one body

with many members,

and these members do not all have

the same function,

so in Christ we who are many

form one body,

and each member belongs

to all the others" 

Romans 12: 3-5

Our history

First Holywood

Presbyterian Church

has a history dating back

to the 17th century

Although the site of the church building has changed

several times

there has been

a Presbyterian witness

in the town for 400 years


The attached history

shows how the church

has developed

and provides a record

which reflects

the way the congregation has sought to meet

the changing needs of its people
