JIGSAW is our Sunday School program in Glenavy Parish. Here, we get up to all sorts of fun and games. We have songs, quizzes, crafts and stories each and every week. If you're aged three and up and would like to come along to JIGSAW then we would love to see you there. 

Each church in the parish has its own JIGSAW and the times are :

10am - St. Andrews (Tunny) & St. John's Crumlin.

11.30am - St. Aidan's Glenavy.​ 

Each month on the third Sunday, we have our family services. These are services designed for all ages and we hope you will come along and enjoy!

For the Teenagers. Sunday Night, 7-9pm. St. Aidan's Hall, Glenavy

Glenavy Parish Youth Fellowship can best be described as young people of our Parish gathering together for Fun, Faith and Friendship. This year we have been incredible lucky to have a wonderful group of young people who come along to YF each week. Our programme has seen us cover a variety of topics discussing faith and life. Of course this is always done with plenty of tea and traybakes which have been willingly supplied by our budding young bakers!  We are delighted to see our members develop friendships and we are hopeful that these will continue as they grow up in our church.

If you would like to come along to YF and you are aged First Year (Year 8) and up, then it's on Sunday nights 7.00-9.00pm at St. Aidan's Hall, Glenavy.

Contemporary Worship Group who play at the Informal Service

Our informal service on the 4th Sunday of each month see's a contemporary style of worship being used. Swapping the Organ for a worship band, we have great fun learning and leading new songs of praise. If you play an instrument or love to sing then we want you to come along and join our team. Contact Michael High if you want to find out more.  


Leading the worship in each church across the Parish.

Ever fancied yourself as an amateur singer? Or perhaps you just enjoy singing on a Sunday morning. Our choirs are an essential part of our ministry as they help lead us in worship every week. Always on the lookout for new recruits, our organist Olive would love to speak to you about joining the choir. As well as Sunday mornings, our choir perform special pieces at seasonal services. Practice is usually on a Monday night in the run up to these. So why not come along and enjoy singing praise with other Choir members?
