We are delighted that you have visited our website!

Whether you are thinking of joining us, of visiting us for an event or you just want a wee nosey - please enjoy and we hope that you feel a sense of the vibrancy of the Cathedral through the photos, stories, blogs and podcasts featured here. 

Along with my wife Paula, and our three children, we joined the Cathedral in 1999. This year is the 350th of the Church being a Cathedral, and it is a thrill for us to be leading here at such a significant time.  The Cathedral has a strong heritage and foundation of good Bible teaching, of energetic outreach and of seeking to do God's will in our context, but we wish to build on that by seeing an even greater and deeper breakthrough of engaging with our community in Lisburn than there has ever been before!

I love to see people grow in faith, and I want to see all at Lisburn Cathedral, of every age and stage, going deeper with the Lord. I want to see Kidzone, Mettle, Alpha, Home Groups, Cameo and all our ministries becoming dynamic places of discipleship and experiencing God's presence.

I want to see people who have never attended a place of worship, come in and experience a community that is welcoming, worshipful and willing to serve Christ and each other!

And you are welcome to be part of it!

God's richest blessings,

Sam
