Welcome to our website. We hope that you find it useful and encouraging whether you are browsing, planning to join us or are a member of our church family. We have lots going on for the whole family in a warm, safe and loving atmosphere.
Read Alvin's Full Welcome
Thank you so much for visiting our website and taking the time to browse through it. Walking into a church for the first time can be a very daunting task. All these questions run through your mind…
What will the people in here be like?… Will there be anyone my age?… Will I fit in?… Will I be made welcome?… Where should I sit?… Will anyone
In Shore Street we are trying to create a family atmosphere where you will feel as if You really do belong here… We really are a family church of all ages and for all ages. We are a great mix of very ordinary people from such different backgrounds whom God has brought together in the most wonderful way.
Our heart is to love, enjoy and delight God’s heart and to reach out to others with the same loving kindness that He has shown us. We are passionate about JESUS and we are forever thankful for God’s incredible mercy in sending and sacrificing His one and His only Son to be our Saviour and LORD. As an overflow of such love and kindness we want to share Jesus with our neighbours and the nations both with our words and with our actions.
We would be delighted if you would like to contact us online or visit Shore Street on Sunday and meet us personally. We would love you to feel genuinely welcomed and maybe even feel that this is a church family where you really do belong

Where is Shore Street and how do I get there?
Shore Street is in Donaghadee – 1 Warren Road, BT21 0DS. Translink operates two routes into Donaghadee from Millisle (7), Bangor (3) and Newtownards (7).
There is a small car park beside the church with more parking available across the road on our Andrews Hall site. Ample parking can be found on the roadside, but please be considerate of our neighbours.
What door should I go in? Is there wheelchair access?
Is there a dress code?
We’ve got no dress code, but people normally dress casually.
What about my kids?
During our 11am Morning Service there’s a dedicated range of children and youth programmes delivered by a team of leaders and volunteers. This starts of for our very youngest members in our Creche and Toddler Room, Sunday School (P1-P6), Streetwise (P7 – Year 10) and Ignite (Year 11+). Find out more.
9:45 – 10:30am
This is a more traditional service which promises to provide you with a quieter, intimate and relaxing environment for worship. You’ll experience a warm welcome, engaging worship and relevant Bible teaching.
Tea and coffee
11am – 12:15pm
You’ll find a welcoming, contemporary, child-friendly and noisy atmosphere. After the first part of our service, children and young people leave for their programmes (Creche, Toddler room, Sunday School, StreetWise, Ignite AM).
The service becomes quieter with a more settled atmosphere to worship and engage with relevant Bible teaching. Tea and coffee are served after the service to create space to share and build relationships.
Our evening services vary from week to week. We have our Healing Service (first Sunday) – If you have worries, fears, or are struggling with physical, emotional or spitiutal pain we are creating a safe space for you to experience the gentle grace of God.
Our MORE Service (third Sunday) offer contemporary worship, teaching and time and space to share and build relationships. We seek God’s presence and intimacy. Our passion is for MORE of God.
We also have more informal gatherings in the Glenfield Hall (second, fourth and fifth Sundays).
Inwardly Strong, Outwardly Focussed

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations,

Help us to surrender those things, O Lord,
That would hinder our walk with you.read more
