As a church family our mission is to disciple believers and share the Good News of the Gospel with our neighbours.
Magheradroll parish dates back to the 15th Century and was then called Ardagaualle. The current building with its spire was consecrated in 1829. This replaced an earlier church destroyed in the 1798 rebellion. The church building was enlarged with a second aisle and porch together with a spire atop the tower in 1870. The Conacher organ was installed in 1899. A new roof was built in 1922. Fine stained glass windows were added in the 1950’s and the sanctuary was reordered in the 1970’s.
James Forde was vicar for 55 years until his death in 1816. The present Rector, Canon Warren Russell has been incumbent in the parish since 1983
‘Jesus is Lord‘
These words encapsulates what we believe is at the heart of what God is calling us to be and to do. We long to become more like Jesus, to share his love with others and to see transformation in our own lives and the lives of those around us as we deepen our faith and grow in our discipleship.
Our Vision is underpinned by three guiding principles. These incorporate the core areas of our life together: worship, discipleship and mission.
Our worship… expresses our whole-hearted response to God’s extravagant love. We are committed to offering worship in a variety of styles, seeking to be open to the Holy Spirit and desiring to be transformed as we encounter God.
Our discipleship… deepens our faith, increases our knowledge and transforms us to be the people Jesus calls us to be as we follow him. We prioritise clear biblical teaching for every stage of faith and provide support and encouragement outside of church services within small informal groups.
Our mission… is to share the love of God in Jesus which we experience ourselves. We do this by prayer and practical support of God’s mission within and beyond the Parish. We are committed to seeing lives transformed through building relationships, encouraging spiritual awareness and being Christ’s ambassadors.
