With the current coronavirus situation, the Presbyterian Church in Ireland (PCI) has decided there should be no in-person gatherings for worship.
Restrictions have been extended to Friday 1 April. Following the next NI Executive review on Thursday 18 March, PCI will assess the situation and make a decision on whether congregations in Northern Ireland could begin to meet again for worship from Friday 2 April, with all necessary precautions and mitigations in place.
While we will not be able to gather physically in the church building for worship, we aim to continue to provide a service online on Sunday mornings during this period.
An audio recording of each service will also be available. If you would like to receive an audio copy, please get in touch with the church office.
The church office can be contacted Monday to Friday by telephone (028 9182 2416) and email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
All gatherings of our groups and organisations remain cancelled.
A message from Rev Paul Dalzell
As Convener of the Vacancy Commission and Interim Moderator, I look forward to working with you, as together we seek to share God’s Good News.
We all know that calling a minister to a congregation is always something that is challenging and needs God’s people to earnestly seek God’s will in prayer and work together to this end. However, as I’m sure you very much appreciate, Covid-19 has made this even more challenging and requiring even more patience as we wait on God to guide us by his Holy Spirit.
Until you are able to call and install your new minister, I am available as needed pastorally. Should such a need arise, I would ask that in the first instance you contact the Clerk of Session, Mr Ian Macdonald, who will then contact me as needed.
We hope that in the not too distant future we can move towards worshipping together in the church building but in the meantime may the online services, conducted by myself and visiting ministers, along with the excellent involvement and support of others in Regent Street Presbyterian Church, be a blessing to you.
