Groomsport Evangelical Presbyterian Church

'Forever, O Lord, Thy Word is Settled in Heaven'


Rev. J. K. McClatchey is the preacher for our Anniversary Services this year at Groomsport Evangelical Presbyterian Church.   He was born in Belfast and as a boy he was saved by the grace of God at a mission when he was 10 years of age.

After school he worked in various occupations, and his last secular employment was with Rolls Royce in Belfast.

From there he went to Theological College to study for the Ministry.  He has served as a minster for almost 45 years.  At present, he is now retired and a member of Omagh Evengelical Presbyterian Church.   While being retired, he continues preaching and seeking to continue to serve the Lord.

He is married to Irene and they have four children, nine grand-children, and at present, three great-grand-children.

If you are familiar with Groomsport you have probably passed our building many times, but maybe you have never met the church family. We hope this website will give you a helpful introduction to who we are, and what we do.

We are a church with people of all ages. We believe that Jesus is alive today and our desire is to help people to come to know the hope, the peace and the joy that comes from knowing him.
