After leaving Galway, Ireland, my friends and I traveled southwest to the west coast of Ireland, specifically we were headed for the town of La Hinch. La Hinch is becoming increasingly popular as a surf spot. We were drawn to this part of Ireland because of the ministry of North Clare Community Church. This is a warm body of Christian believers which welcomed us and allowed us to minister alongside of them for the short time we were in North Clare County, Ireland.

As we found throughout Ireland, the worship music is amazing and the believers are very engaged in singing and playing music for Jesus.

After church service on Sundays, you’ll likely be invited to hang around and chat over a bowl of soup and a cup of tea.

When you are in North Clare County, Ireland, don’t pass up a chance to gather with the body of Christ at North Clare Community Church.

Earlier this month, I was in Ireland, visiting the Christians there in Galway and North County Clare. It was my first time to Ireland, so I was often distracted by the beauty of the place. Some folks from my church and I went to Ireland to encourage the church there and to experience what it is to be a bible-believing Christian today in Ireland.

This post will be dedicated to New Hope Calvary Chapel, a newly planted church (little over a year) in Galway, Ireland. The church is pastored by Jess McCurnin, a vibrant, God-loving husband and father of four.

Jess and his wife, Rebecca, have a heart to plant churches in Ireland and around Europe as God would allow and in God’s timing. In addition to being the Pastor of the church which is now meeting its own space in Galway just minutes by car from center city, Jess is the worship leader. We had a lovely time encouraging and ministering with the church at New Hope.

If you are ever in Galway, be sure to look them up.
