Who We Are
We are a church located in Rathfriland, Co.Down, Northern Ireland.
The Reformed Presbyterian Church has it’s roots in Scotland and those ministers who came over to Ulster to pastor Scots Presbyterians at the time of the plantation, and to help bring the reformed faith in its purest form to the island. These Presbyterians were sometimes referred to as ‘Covenanters’ due to their adherence to solemn promises by which they vowed to uphold Jesus Christ as rightful King in the Church and over the State. The name Covenanters and their aspiration is one today we continue to gladly share with them.
Rathfriland Reformed Presbyterian congregation was formed in the 1770’s under the itinerant ministry of Rev. William Stavely. The meeting house was erected in 1777, was rebuilt in 1861 and still the worship centre of the congregation. Due to the foundation of rock on which the meeting house was built, the building and indeed the congregation are known locally as ”The Rock”.
The congregation endeavours to provide a Christian witness within the local community.
