What We Believe

As a Christian church we believe in the authority of the Bible and in the Sovereignty of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • God the Father, who created us and all the world.
  • God the Son who redeemed us, in giving Himself on the Cross for our Salvation.
  • God the Holy Spirit, who guides and strengthens us each day as we seek to become more like Jesus.
Jesus said: "I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full…"
Jesus offers to each of us a Life Worth Living, in a relationship with Him, knowing His forgiveness and His Love and filled with His Peace and His Joy.

Our Mission for Our Church

“That it may be a House of prayer, a Centre of Christian Teaching and a witness within the community to God's redeeming love”

Our Vision

"To know Christ and to make Him Known"

Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 3:13-14

Worship

Worship
Stacks Image 292
Worship is primarily and ultimately about God….. But it is also about us as individuals and as a community coming together and bringing our thanks and praise to God, and to come on behalf of others: the wider church throughout the world, the local community and those we know, as we ask for His blessing and seek His wisdom, power, strength, guidance and healing. It is also about making a difference in our community, in the way we live our lives on a daily basis. Our lives as Christ's Disciples should reflect the God who is living in us, and the Holy Spirit who is working through us, to help transform the lives of those around us.

There is something for everyone at Mullavilly, and we have a range of different services on a Sunday and during the month: Holy Communion, Family Services, Morning and Evening Worship, Special Praise Services and other services for special occasions such as Christmas, Easter and Harvest. We encourage our congregation to take part in helping to lead including our children and young people.

Originally from the Birches, just outside Portadown, I am married to Eddie and we have three grown up children, Andrew, Christopher and Rebecca.

I was called to join the Church Army in 1986. I did my training at the Church Army College in Blackheath in London, and following Commissioning by the Archbishop of Canterbury in June 1990, returned to Northern Ireland to serve in different Parishes and Dioceses as a Parish Evangelist: Ballynure & Ballyclare, Seapatrick Banbridge, Waringstown and Donaghcloney, and in Ardmore Parish as Evangelist in Charge.

Following a call to Ordination, I was ordained in June 2009, and went to serve in St. Columba's Portadown, initially as a Curate Assistant, and then to be appointed as Vicar.

On 20th September 2013 I was instituted as Rector of Mullavilly. In my spare time I enjoy travelling and holidays. I also enjoy dining out and discovering lovely places to eat and relax.
