Adelaide Road Presbyterian Church (ARPC) is a “gathered” congregation of people, of all ages, family friendly, and situated in the heart of inner city South Dublin.
The church has continued to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ since it opened in 1841. It is bible-centred, evangelical, with a heart for serving the local community.
The congregation took the decision in 1989 to “Stay and Share Jesus”. Stay in the city centre and share our faith in Jesus Christ with our city centre communities. To do this more effectively a new building was necessary, after much hard work, many answers to prayer and enriched faith in a great God the new building was opened in June 2002. The modern premises now accommodate a church sanctuary area, a purpose built childcare facility, a multi-purpose space and four apartments.
Many thousands of people work in offices in the area. The local population comprises those living in socially deprived flatland and social housing, to those living in modern apartments and expensive private homes. Nearby there are also immigrant hostels, student communities, English language schools, many businesses, B&B’s, hotels, a hospital and other churches.
We are also happy to share our church building with the Dublin Korean Church.
