The history of Presbyterianism in Ireland can be traced back to 1613. The first Non-Subscribing Presbytery was formed in 1725 and our most notable historical leader, Dr. Henry Montgomery (pictured left), took a leading part in the controversy in the 1820's that led to the formation of the Non-Subscribing Remonstrant Synod of Ulster. Our Church refuses to impose compulsory subscription to any man-made creeds in respect of a person's Christian faith. Our ethos is 'faith guided by reason and conscience' and we advocate liberal and tolerant Christianity.

Share offering in Northern Ireland’s first community-owned farm

Autumn is a time when Christians and churches are celebrating their Harvest festivals; many also take time to rediscover their mandate to care for creation and, to this end, Jubilee Farm exists to work with Christians and churches in Ireland and beyond to care for creation together, to the glory of God. They also work with local communities to achieve this goal, including with people of differing backgrounds and beliefs. Established in 2017 after several years of prayer, planning and consultation, they define creation care as environmental and agricultural stewardship that incorporates flourishing and fairness, welfare and wellbeing. In seeking to implement this holistic vision, their mission is to practice and promote care farming, community-supported agriculture (CSA), and conservation education and engagement.

Since the beginning of 2018, they have been using a temporary site in Larne, Co. Antrim. Now, they’re raising £300,000 to purchase a small farm outside Larne to bring their ambitious plans for Jubilee Farm to fruition, with organic pigs, poultry, goats and vegetables, plus an internship programme. Already, they’ve raised £165,000 from existing supporters to purchase the farmhouse. Now, they need to raise £135,000 to buy the 13.5 acres of land, as well as polytunnels and other equipment, by Christmas. As a Community Benefit Society – a form of cooperative social enterprise – they’re raising this money via a community share offer, making this the first community-owned farm in Northern Ireland. Launching in Belfast on 20th October, the minimum investment in the project starts from £50. If you would like to learn more about their share offer, please click on the button below.
