Hamilton Road Presbyterian Church longs to see unbelieving people become faithful followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have been meeting as a church since 1897 and from small beginnings have become one of the larger congregations in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland.
The Presbyterian Church believes that “the Word of God as set forth in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments is the only infallible rule of faith and practice, and the supreme standard of the Church.” That may seem a bit of a mouthful but in practice it means that our authority as a church resides in the Bible in which God has spoken and through which he still speaks. It is this conviction which shapes our life together at Hamilton Road.
This means we are committed to teaching the Bible systematically and consecutively week by week. This is reflected in the preaching at the Sunday services and in our fellowship groups which meet during the week. You can look at the current sermon series on the website and also find out about our Fellowship Groups. The best way to get a feel for what we do is to join us at one of the Sunday services, either morning or evening at 11am and 6.30pm.
As a Presbyterian congregation, HRPC is governed by a group of elders appointed from within the Church Family to take responsibility for the spiritual oversight of the congregation. Collectively the elders are known as the Kirk Session. A Congregational Committee manage the temporal affairs of the congregation, and are accountable to Kirk Session.
The Kirk Session is arranged into a number of sub–committees, which have responsibility for various ministries in our church family. The sub committees and their remits are:
Pastoral and Caring
The best way to understand what our services are like is to come along. Whatever your background, whatever your experience of church, we trust that you will find HRPC to be a welcoming community, equipping you to be a faithful follower of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Refreshments are served after the evening service, in the Welcome Centre.
