From September 6th, services can proceed with up to 50% capacity subject to appropriate protective measures (social distancing, hand sanitising, masks etc.)
Please do not attend church if you or a member of your household is experiencing, or recovering from, symptoms of COVID-19. If you plan on attending, and in accordance with our diocesan protocols, you will be asked to:
  • Wear a face covering. If you forget your mask, don’t worry, we will have some available. Children under the age of 13 are not required to wear a face covering.
  • Ensure your hands are sanitized using the sanitizer provided or your own.
  • There will be a greeter there to seat you. Please sit where you are seated.
  • Don’t bottle neck! I will be lovely to see familiar faces again, but we ask people not to converse in areas that will restrict the movement of others.
We will continue to have a reading and reflection on the parish YouTube channel at 7pm ever Sunday. Our services can be accessed on YouTube here. Remember to subscribe to the channel

Welcome to Kilternan Parish
We are a diverse group of people of all ages, committed to building community, strengthening worship, and growing in service. Everyone is welcome as we seek to know Christ and to make him known in our community.

As you visit our parish website we hope that you will find in it something that interests you. At Kilternan we believe we are building something exciting, and we hope you will be a part of that. Kilternan Parish is in the Church of Ireland Dioceses of Dublin and is part of the Anglican Community, a worldwide family or fellowship of churches. Many of our members have grown up Anglican, but many come from a broad range of traditions. In a changing Ireland, Kilternan Parish is home for a wonderful diversity of people.

The people of Kilternan have been worshipping in this building since 1826. As a church, we are both ancient and modern, ancient in that we cherish the traditions and insights of those who have gone before us, and modern in that we are always seeking to be relevant in the modern world. Kilternan is a growing church of over 300 families. As well as offering a full range of vibrant worship services and faith formation opportunities, we also provide a range of children and youth work and communities, where people of all ages can connect and grow in faith.

We recently opened the Kilternan Parish Centre and we operate a Monday-Friday outreach Café called the gathering grounds. These are exciting times at Kilternan, and we invite you to join us on this Journey with God.
