We welcome new singers of all ages to join our choir in St. Matthew’s Church; we especially welcome all children to come and sing with us at our monthly Family Service in St. Matthew’s Church.

We have also formed a relationship with the Sandymount Gospel Choir, and look forward to enjoying more of their distinctive style.

“Explorers” is an ecumenical group of people in the Sandymount area who enjoy exploring the Scriptures. Explorers come from all the Christian churches in the area; this season we are exploring The Letter to the Romans with Fr. Kieran O’Mahony. There are eight evening gatherings, currently meeting in Christ Church Hall, Sandymount Green on Monday evenings from 7.30pm to 9pm. The 2017 season finished in April. Details of next year’s programme will be posted closer to the time of commencement.

The Knanayan tradition of the Syriac Oriental Orthodox Church is a community of Christians from Kerala, in south western India. Spread across Ireland, they meet monthly in our St. Mary’s Church Donnybrook at 11am under the leadership of Fr. Thomas Jacob. He can be contacted by email at thomasjacob03@yahoo.de. The Dublin contact person is Mr. Abraham Baisel: abaisel@yahoo.com
