Welcome to the homepage of St. Polycarp’s Parish, a friendly and welcoming Christian community at Finaghy , Belfast. Our parish is Grouped with the Church of the Epiphany (Sicily Park) and shares a Rector. We worship according to the traditions of the Church of Ireland and the Anglican Communion with a deep Bible-based liturgy and outstanding choral music. We warmly welcome all who are searching in faith and also seek to nurture and enrich those who have already found their spiritual home in the Anglican tradition. Communicant members of all Christian churches are invited to receive Holy Communion at the Lord’s Table in this parish.

We have two main Sunday services each week and a third service on alternate Sundays. Full details of all our services are available on this website, together with information about our wider parish activities.

Anyone who is new to the area or those who are visiting will be most welcome and our hope is that you will find yourself in the presence of God in fellowship with a Christian community seeking to serve Him and share his message of unconditional love.
