WHY IN IRELAND?
In the Bible, Jesus Christ calls His followers to go into the entire world, serving Him by serving others, and sharing with them the Good News of the Gospel. Since the Amish and Mennonites had their beginnings in Europe, we feel a special attraction in returning to the lands of our ancestors, continuing the faith and practice of faithful believers over the centuries.
It is our desire to be good neighbours, and to be of service to the people in our community. In addition, we want to maintain a fellowship of believers where anyone can feel welcome to worship the Lord with us. Our purpose is to glorify God by living for Him, and showing by example that the Christian life is a joyful, productive life, that Jesus is the Answer to every person’s deepest needs, and that the Bible is the Foundation on which we can safely build our lives.
IS EVERYONE WELCOME?
Everyone is indeed welcome, regardless of their nationality, social status, or religious background. Visitors are always welcome at our worship services, which are held every Sunday morning at 10:30.
While our dress and practices may be different from what you are accustomed to, please do not hesitate to come and visit. We often have visitors, and we do not expect visitors to dress as we do. You are welcome to come ‘as you are’, and to come as often as you like. Members of our church in Ireland include local Irish people as well as resident immigrants from a variety of countries.
Our meeting place is not fancy but the fellowship is warm and inviting. The marks of Christ’s church, we think, are not soaring spires and gothic windows; even less are they richness and hugeness. The mark of the Church is life: the living body of believers carrying out the will of Christ, who is the Head of the Church.
We hope that this brief message gives you a better understanding of the Amish Mennonites, who we are, and what we believe. More importantly, we would earnestly encourage you to find true meaning in life and to make preparation for eternity through believing in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour.
We offer free Bible study guides and other booklets. We would also like to share with you a free monthly Christian magazine, which has stories and articles for the whole family.
