Grace Free Presbyterian is situated on the outskirts of the busy market town of Newtownards, County Down, Northern Ireland.
We are just off the busy main dual carraigeway that runs between Newtownards and Bangor. Newtownards, known colloquially by locals as "Ards", is a large town which lies at the most northern tip of Strangford Lough, 10 miles (16 km) east of Belfast, on the Ards Peninsula.
We are a multi-generational congregation, served by a team, under the leadership of Rev. Dr Ron Johnstone. Grace FPC has a rich history stretching back to 1977.
We would love to welcome you to our services on a Sunday (11:30am and 7pm). Our morning services last for about an hour, following the familiar patterns of Reformed worship (prayer, praise, Scripture reading, preaching, and communion on the first Sunday of each month).
What do we believe?
The essence of historic Presbyterian belief is to be found in the so-called the "Five Solas of the Reformation"
Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptura),
Christ Alone (Solus Christus),
Faith Alone (Sola Fide),
Grace Alone (Sola Gratia), to the
Glory of God Alone (Soli Deo Gloria).
We would really love to see you at our services on a Sunday, or at any activity throughout the week. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
Thank you for your interest in our ministry.
