Every sunday at 11am and 5:30pm
You can listen to our services live below at 11am and 5.30pm GMT every Sunday.
In keeping with the 4th commandment, we meet twice every Lord's Day for public worship, and spend the rest of the day in private worship as well as works of necessity and mercy. We strictly avoid all other work and all entertainment (click here to read more about this).
Visitors are very welcome!
Our services follow the following format:
Call to Worship
Votum: “Our help is in the name of Jehovah who made heaven and earth”
Salutation: “Beloved in our Lord Jesus Christ ...”
Benediction: “Grace, mercy and peace be unto you from God our Father, through Jesus Christ our Lord, by the operation of the Holy Spirit. Amen!”
Reading of the Scriptures
The Preaching of the Word
Benediction: “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the communion of the Holy Spirit abide with you. Amen!” [Watch/listen to a sermon which explains the benediction]
Our worship is governed by the Regulative Principle which means that we worship only in a form sanctioned by the Lord in his word and we reject the use of unscriptural methods and man-centered innovations in God's worship.
Our worship time consists of the preaching of God's word (being the chief means of grace), prayer and the singing of psalms. It is our firm belief that the preaching of God's word is the function of lawfully called and ordained ministers only and therefore we reject lay-preaching and the 'every-man-ministry' so prevalent in the church world today. Our needs in this regard are met by the live preaching of Rev Martyn McGeown, sent by the Covenant Protestant Reformed Church (CPRC), Ballymena, Northern Ireland to be our missionary.
We are comitted to the use of Creeds which faithfully outline the teachings of the bible. These creeds in no way supplant the authority of scripture but are rather clear summaries of the core Christian doctrines as taught in God's Word. The official creeds used by the Limerick Reformed Fellowship are the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession and the Canons of Dort, known collectively as the Three Forms of Unity.
We also hold to the singing of the inspired, God breathed Psalms (Col 3:16, Eph 5:18,19) as opposed to the singing of uninspired compositions - no matter how pious they may seem - and to this end we use the Scottish Metrical Version (1650) of the Psalter.

These weekly meeting are open to all. Should you have an interest in attending please contact our Pastor (see bottom left of page for contact details).
