Sun­day Morn­ing: Each Sun­day we meet at 11 am to wor­ship in song, to pray and to hear from the Scrip­tures. The wor­ship style is a blend of both tra­di­tional and mod­ern, and ap­peals to a wide range of ages.

We share to­gether in the Lord’s Sup­per on the sec­ond Sun­day morn­ing in each month. If you are a fol­lower of Je­sus you are very wel­come to join us.

There is a chil­dren’s pro­gram that runs at the same time as the morn­ing ser­vice, in­clud­ing crèche for veery young chil­dren.

The cur­rent se­ries of talks are en­til­tled ’In the Val­ley’, ex­plo­ry­ing our ex­pe­ri­ence of God ’in the val­ley of dark­ness’ in the dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing times in life.

En­gage - our 7pm Evening Ser­vice. En­gage is our con­tem­po­rary ser­vice, based on vi­brant and mod­ern mu­sic style and a com­mit­ment to Bib­li­cal preach­ing. Every­one is wel­come, es­pe­cially if you en­joy con­tem­po­rary style wor­ship.

The cur­rent se­ries of talks are en­ti­tled ‘Why God Hates Re­li­gion and Loves Sex!’. We are looking in this se­ries at how Je­sus spoke about sex and re­li­gion, and how it re­lates to mod­ern life. We won­der whether you would be in­ter­ested in ei­ther do­ing a in­ter­view or just a com­mu­nity no­tice re­gard­ing this se­ries.

The Eco­nomic and Plan­ning Depart­ment of the Dun Laoghaire-Rath­down County Coun­cil has ex­am­ined the laneway be­tween Crinken Glen and the rear of As­sumpta Park with a view to erect­ing fenc­ing to pre­vent and de­ter the laneway be­ing used as a short-cut and to elim­i­nate dump­ing and an­ti­so­cial be­hav­ior in the area.

Fol­low­ing the site in­spec­tion with the Parks Depart­ment, 5 com­pa­nies were in­vited to ten­der for the clear­ing of the site and the erec­tion of pal­isade fenc­ing at the bound­ary of th­ese 2 es­tates. Cur­rently th­ese tenders are be­ing re­viewed and it is ex­pected that a con­trac­tor will be ap­pointed shortly.


New traf­fic lights are now in op­er­a­tion at the junc­tion of Stone­bridge Road and the Dublin Road.


The year Shankill re­ceived a to­tal of 267 points in the Tidy Towns com­pe­ti­tion , a 4 point im­prove­ment on last year and again Shankill came sec­ond in the Dun Laoghaire –Rath­down Area, only 2 points be­hind Dalkey, the win­ners.

The Shankill Tidy Towns Com­mit­tee sin­cerely thank all those vol­un­teers who have helped out dur­ing the year to clean up Shankill and have as­sisted in the ap­prox­i­mately 16 tonnes of lit­ter from the streets and wood­lands in the past 16 months.

A great deal has been achieved over the past 16 months and Com­mit­tee wishes to see more achieved in the years ahead as this will have sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fit for those who ei­ther work or live in the area.

How­ever without more sup­port from lo­cal res­i­dents and the busi­ness com­mu­nity th­ese ef­forts will not be sus­tain­able and es­sen­tially the Tidy Towns Com­mit­tee needs more peo­ple power and fi­nan­cial sup­port.

The Shankill Tidy Towns Com­mit­tee is ask­ing every­one to ei­ther do­nate time or money to them con­tin­u­ing th­ese worth­while projects. One hour per week or even one hour per month would help.

If you are un­able to do this, please then make a fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tion in­stead as the money re­ceived will be used wisely and cre­atively to make im­prove­ment sin the area you live.
