One Church : Two villages – Waringstown & Donaghcloney


Who We Are

We are a group of people, who come together on Sundays, to meet together to hear God speak through His word.  To encourage each other through singing and praying, and who with the help of God, aim to live out what God teaches us Sunday by Sunday.

One Church in 2 villages – Waringstown & Donaghcloney

We have two church buildings and two sets of halls, but we have the one staff team, we follow the same preaching series and have the same vision for both congregations.

Each church service has it’s own particular style… and we meet together:

Church Structure

General Vestry

The Church's General Vestry membership is made up of members of the congregation of the church and its membership is updated by invitation in the weeks before the Annual Easter General Vestry meeting. All members must be registered and their details retained on the central register. The Annual Easter General Vestry only meets to elect the Select Vestry and on other extra-ordinary occasions when there is some detailed business to be dealt with or imparted.

Select Vestry

The Select Vestry is made up of the Clergy, the Churchwardens, the Glebewardens and twelve elected members of the General Vestry. The Select Vestry meets on a monthly basis generally the third Tuesday of each month between September and June and have a responsibility for the general management of all of church business with the exception of pastoral and spiritual care.
