A warm welcome to our new website which we hope you will find helpful and encouraging.

Rathgar Methodist Church is situated in a richly ecumenical part of south Dublin and has been serving the community here since 1874. We are situated at the junction of Brighton Road and Garville Avenue, within easy reach of Harold’s Cross, Terenure and Rathmines.

We are always delighted to welcome visitors, whether to our 11.30 am service on Sunday morning or to any of our weekly activities or special events, details of which you can find by following the links provided.

For further information, please contact our minister, Rev. Vanessa Wyse Jackson at 4974674 or at [email protected] who will be happy to help you. 


Radiant God,

light for all peoples and all places,

by the guidance of a star you led the Magi to worship the Christ Child.

By the light of faith, lead us to worship you in peace and love,

and continue to guide us in your way throughout this coming year.

We pray this, in the name of Christ, the light of the world.
