About First Holywood Presbyterian Church

About Us

We are a community of Christian believers who meet together to worship God in the town of Holywood, County Down. We welcome anyone who would like to share with us in our worship and family.


The Bible is central to our worship. All of our services will include opportunities for everyone to join in singing praise to God, times when people will lead us in prayer, read the Bible and seek to explain it so we can understand and apply it in our lives. Each time we gather to worship we expect not simply to meet with one another, but also to meet with God as he speaks to us in his word by the Holy Spirit.


We meet together regularly, not just every Sunday at 11.00am in the main church building for Sunday worship, but for different activities throughout the week. 


We aspire to be an intergenerational community, so we welcome people of all ages to our service. We have activities for our children and young people during this time and we also have a creche for babies and toddlers. Everyone attends the start of the service and then the children and young people leave for their activities halfway through the service.
