Portrush Presbyterian Church

Flower

Each of us know the value of small things.Perhaps we are more aware when someone fails to say thank you or please, or to remember special days. Think of the effect of an unexpected small gift on some one .. Sunday is Harvest thanksgiving service- perhaps you would like to participate in our small plant gifts… just bring them on Sunday or before if you wish. Thanks Rev J

Here in Portrush Presbyterian we want to have our daily life reflect our faith. We make our goal to help the church community to love God and make Him known and to love our neighbour. We know this is only possible because of God first loving us. We often fail but don’t give up because Jesus Christ has lived perfectly, died sacrificially and been raised again to win all the promises that give us our hope.

Helpfully we also have a guide and a framework of truth and belief to lead us- the Bible and our convictions based on it. We call these, confessions (summaries of our belief) such as The Westminster confession of faith and the Shorter catechism along with for example; the Heidelberg catechism. They give us stability especially in a day when pragmatism is so attractive and even dangerous.

Each of the leaders also admit to being weak, needy and fallen, but have discovered and are amazed at God’s mercy won for them by Jesus. This is the hope that we share, it means that we are able to be honest about ourselves. It also means we welcome all no matter what their story is. We are called to accept you, to love you, and to help you find the grace of God that can rescue you.
