Carrigart is a small village on the Rosguill Peninsula of County Donegal. The village is a popular holiday destination due to its proximity to the many beaches of nearby Downings and Rosapenna. Our Church is on Church Road, heading out of Carrigart towards Milford.
A warm welcome for visitors to Sunday services is always guaranteed!
The Bewglas Centre shares the church grounds. It is a Christian Youth Centre offering self-catering accommodation for up to 35 people and may be booked on a weekly or weekend basis or even for a day conference.
Carol Service 2018 Dunfanaghy
No room for the baby in Bethlehem’s Inn,
Only a cattle shed!
No room on this earth for the dear Son of God
Nowhere to lay His head.
Only a cross did they give to our Lord,
Only a borrowed tomb.
Yet today He is seeking a place in your heart -
Will you still say to Him, ‘No room’?
No room for the Saviour today it seems,
So busy we just don't have time.
Only contempt do we hear on TV
For the Lord of all glory sublime.
Selfishness, pride and idolatry reign
And are dragging us down to our doom!
God's grace isn't wanted, salvation despised
By a world that hasn't got room.
Oh we’ve room for gambling, violence, sex,
Drunkenness, lying and more,
Spiralling deeper in darkness and pain
Unable to find the door.
Jesus would save you, bind up your wounds
And assure you of Heaven to come.
In stubborn defiance will you remain?
Will you still say to Him, ‘No room’?
The King will return here for judgement soon.
Creation will bow to His name.
Among His people that day will you be
Or crying out in terror and shame?
Let Him find room in your heart and your life,
Let Him have first place of all.
Turn from your sin, and welcome the Christ.
Be ready to answer His call.
When heavens arches ring and her choirs shall sing
At His coming in victory,
May His voice call us home saying ‘Yes, there is room,
There is room at my side for thee’.
And my heart shall rejoice Lord Jesus
When you come and you call for me.
Come now to my heart Lord Jesus,
There is room in my heart for Thee.

Everyone is very welcome.
The church was beautifully decorated for our Harvest Thanksgiving Services on Sunday 14th October. Thank you to everyone who contributed and helped with decorating and supper. It was lovely to welcome friends and family.
At our evening service, Hazel Fisher sang a solo "As the deer pants for the water". The sermon can be found in 'Now There's a Thought ...'.
In Children's Church with Fiona, the children made "Mr Potato Head". Although they were a little concerned when told that might be all they were getting for dinner!!

“Finding Our Way Home is a collection of prayers and reflections by Presbyterian minister Andrew Watson that invites the reader to contemplate and celebrate the gift of ‘home’ – both earthly and divine. As well as addressing key events in the Christian calendar, such as Easter and Pentecost, the book considers universal subjects including marriage, parenthood, ageing and bereavement.
Finding Our Way Home offers consolation during times of difficulty in our lives, but it also invites readers to express joy, gratitude and wonder for the many gifts bestowed upon us by a benevolent creator: be it family, friends or the untold beauty of the natural world.”
