Our Mission & Values

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.  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 with over 300 families where people of all ages can connect and grow in faith.  These are exciting times at Kilternan, and we invite you to join us on this Journey with God.

Building Community

At church, we are not once a week strangers, but the family of God. As such we need to develop the bonds between us. We do this when we break bread together, in church and outside of church. But we also seek to build community outside of ourselves as we embrace the community around us in Christ like hospitality.

Strengthening Worship

How we worship is important, it tells the story of who we are. At Kilternan we seek to offer a range of worship, cafe church, Messy Church and more as we seek to worship God in spirit and truth.

Growing In Service

We are not called to bless ourselves, but to bless the world around us. At Kilternan we hope to serve those in our community who need our love and support. If you might want to get involved we have a wide range of volunteer teams and ways to serve in the parish and the wider community.

5 Year Vision & Strategy

In 2021, recognising a growing community in Kilternan the Select Vestry, under the leadership of Revd Rob Clements undertook a parish wide strategy review. Hundreds of people from the parish and community contributed and a open Vision Night was held including prayer groups.

The result of this was a 5 year Vision and Strategy plan to bringing the parish to its bi-centenary year in 2027 which you can view here.
