Welcome to Rathgar Methodist Church in Dublin!

What one generation tolerates, the next generation will embrace. (John Wesley)

Rathgar Methodist church was established in 1874 and has been serving God in South City Dublin for 146 years.  First of all, our church is deeply rooted in the love of Christ.  Our mission is to create life changing worship and provide fellowship opportunities for people of all ages.  We strive to build relationships beyond the walls of our church.

Prayer for church unity 

Lord Jesus, you prayed that your people would be one, forgive us Lord and take away the pride and arrogance which divides your church. Break down the walls which separate us; unite us with your bonds of love and accomplish your will. We pray that by the power of your Spirit your healing would work in the body of your church and through me, to bring about the purpose of your will. Amen.
