We are a community of ordinary men,
women, young people and children who
have experienced the transformational
power of Jesus’ love in our lives.
A community, at the heart of Bangor
for over 125 years.
We are a community of ordinary men, women, young people and children who have experienced the transformational power of Jesus’ love in our lives. Amazingly, God’s gift of life — full of love, joy and peace — has come to us through the death of His Son, Jesus. Jesus is alive today and offers this gift of life to all who come to Him.

Bangor Parish Church is led by our rector and staff team, with responsibility for finance and our buildings being overseen by the Select Vestry, who are elected each year at our AGM. Nigel Parker came to us in 2004 when he was appointed Rector.  As part of the Church of Ireland we belong to the Diocese of Down and Dromore, a group of over 70 parishes, overseen by Bishop Harold Miller.

Our Vision & Values

Give Your All

It’s about worship.  We value an attitude of worship, which desires to serve, honour and glorify our Heavenly Father in every aspect of daily life.

Join the Family

It’s about Belonging.  We value Church community with a deep sense of love, support and responsibility for one another

Keep On Growing

It’s about Maturity.  We value an environment of growth in which disciples of Jesus Christ are striving to become increasingly like their Lord in character, word and action.

Serve Each Other

It’s about Ministry.  We value being equipped to serve fellow members of the Church with the gifts given by the Holy Spirit.

Transform Your World

It’s about Mission.  We value the call to reach out to people in need with the love and strengthening which God supplies.
