Situated on the beautiful shores of Strangford Lough, Killyleagh is a picturesque town located approximately 20 miles south of Belfast and 5 miles north of the historical cathedral town of Downpatrick - with its close associations with St. Patrick.

Killyleagh was settled by John de Courcey in the 12th Century with fortifications on what is now the site of Killyleagh Castle.  This fine turretted Castle, redesigned in 1850 by Charles Lanyon, is still privately owned and is a focal point in the town.

Our family church welcomes all who want to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. We've built this site so that - 

  • people coming into our town and district can find us and share the joy of the gospel with us.

  • people in our own Parish can stay in touch with their Church.

Come and visit us and enjoy the fellowship our Church offers, or link up with us virtually and still feel part of our family.  We hope that you find this site useful and informative.  Please contact us as follows-
