We are trying to make sure everyone is contacted on a regular basis through emails, letters, phone calls, WhatsApp groups, huddling on zoom. And that everyone has an opportunity to get involved.
This short form is the same as the one you received through the post that allows you to give us your contact details, get connected in different ways and lists opportunities to get involved. (If you didn’t receive anything in the post then we might not have your correct details).
We look forward to hearing from you.

Due to the current health restrictions all our services online during lockdown.
A NOTE FROM THE BISHOPS 25/2/21
“Following the Northern Ireland Executive’s decision to extend the current Covid-19 restrictions to Thursday 1st April 2021, representatives of the Churches met earlier this week with Ministers from the Executive Office, the Minister of Health and the Chief Medical Officer. At that meeting the Chief Medical Officer stressed that it would make a significant difference and be of huge benefit to public health and safety, if churches were willing to continue, for the time being, not to gather in-person for services and other meetings.
In the light of the Executive’s extension of the current restrictions, and on the basis of the continued and unequivocal public health message that people should continue to stay at home, we have agreed that all in-person Sunday gatherings for worship, along with all other in-person church gatherings, should remain voluntarily suspended for the time being in all Church of Ireland parishes in Northern Ireland until Thursday 1st April 2021 – with the exception of weddings, funerals, arrangements for recording and/or live-streaming, drive- in services and private prayer (as permitted by regulations).”
The “Belvoir Parish App” is a new addition to our line up. This is a really simple way to access all of the video and online content from your phone, tablet or computer. You don’t need to go to a “store” to get it.
Instructions of how to download it:
1. Click the link bit.ly/belvoirparish
2. On Android tap the 3 vertical dots at top right, then from the drop-down menu, select “Add to Home Screen” or on iOS tap the Share button (a square with upwards-arrow), then select “Add to Home Screen”.
Sunday Nights @ Home is a short time of worship, prayer and stories. It is on zoom and your camera and mic will automatically be turned off to allow you to join without people seeing/hearing you. You can, of course, turn your camera and mic on if you want to chat to people
