As a church we aim to love God, each other and our community. We do this by loving Up, In and Out.
Following Jesus involves “Loving God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength” (Matthew 22 v37).
It affects every part of our lives, whether we are together as one community or living apart going about our daily business. As a response to Jesus’ love for us, we want to elevate Him to the highest position in our lives. We respond to God’s love for us by redirecting our love back toward Him.
The whole church community meets together once a week on Sunday at 11 a.m. in Hansfield Educate Together National School (see our Where We Meet page for details). The service is informal in style and lasts for about an hour and a half (and includes refreshments afterwards). We celebrate what God has done for us through Jesus by singing worship songs, praying together, and enjoying relevant, practical teaching from the Holy Bible each week.
Children are well catered for, with a full programme of children’s classes from creche through to 6th class.
Following Jesus involves “Loving one another, as He loved us.” (John 13 v34)
Sunday Morning Services
We meet each week at 11am in Hansfield ETNS. Our services are casual gatherings which include worship through singing, prayers, a message from the Bible and often more! There is a programme for children in primary school and we also have a creche available.
Growth groups are small, committed groups of people (between 3-12 in each group) that meet in various locations around the D15 area with the aim of helping us all grow into spiritually mature followers of Christ. There are Growth Groups for men only, women only, and mixed-gender groups. We run throughout the year to mutually encourage one another to love God, love each other, and love and serve those around us. They really are the best environment for building strong friendships; cultivating a deeper faith through study, prayer, and mutual accountability; and discovering a shared purpose together.
There are many practical ways that we can love each other – a meal to the overstressed / sick, childcare while attending an appointment, fixing a car, praying for each other, a listening ear etc. There are designated people in Dublin West Community Church that coordinate pastoral support to the church family.
Bringing the needs of others to God is a great privilege. The church gathers to pray every second Wednesday evening. We pray for those who need God’s help in our own church family, in the wider D15 community, in our country, and for other events and people around the globe.
Following Jesus involves “loving our neighbour as ourselves” (Mark 12 v 31)
We are learning to love our local community and try to find ways that we can both show God’s love and tell the Christian message of hope to our neighbours here in D15 and beyond.
Throughout the year, we are involved with various individuals and groups around Greater Blanchardstown, providing a service to them using the resources that God has blessed us with, whether that be providing skills training to parents, caring for those on the margins of our society, hosting community events, or running introductory courses on the Christian faith.
We also support people who provide care and advocacy for the illiterate, disenfranchised, and poor in Romania, Cameroon, Latin America, and Kolkata, India.
