The Reality 

Our Website Presents a Picture of


that truly reflects all our Resident as
This is how they really are!

Their positive outlook on life is a tribute to their character, resilience and determination to seek happiness
and the good things that life has to offer.
It is also true that each Resident faces challenges and issues that most of us don’t ever have to consider.
Extra ‘supports’ are required to enable everyday activities and these supports are provided by family, staff and volunteers.
No two Residents are the same, and no two diagnoses are the same.
While there are similar syndromes, classifications and needs, each person is an individual and therefore requires a personal assessment of their own needs.
Each Resident is assisted to identify the supports they need to help reach their optimum level of independence and potential.

We at Peacehaven value the contribution which each of our Residents can make to our community and indeed to this country of Ireland.

The Person-Centred care which we provide to assist each Resident is as
individual as they are
and includes such things as cooking, cleaning, travel, finances, educational goals, medical, diet, exercise, sports, etc.

An environment can be confusing and even overwhelming at times,
this can cause difficulty for a Resident.
Staff are here to help at such times, but so too are other Residents, who support each other in the same way that siblings often do.

Outside of their home at Peacehaven, our Residents engage with a world which often has not considered their needs…
Broken and Narrow Pavements which challenge our wheelchair users…
Infrequent Public Transport…
There are many obstacles to be overcome!

Learning the solutions to these obstacles takes time, – but with help
Most Things Can Be Overcome.

Therefore, as our Residents rise to the challenge of daily living, they enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities as everybody – going to work, joining community clubs and groups, making friends, shopping, enjoying coffee shops…
Simply being a part of the town and community of Greystones, Bray and beyond.


Planning your Visit

A Warm Hello 

The following information is specifically for those planning a visit, so that you know, beforehand, what to expect on a Sunday morning.

Where and When

We meet at the Church Building (details here) for our Sunday Service starting at 10:30am. For your first visit, we recommend arriving 10-15 minutes early to ensure you get a parking space and find somewhere to sit before the service begins. When you arrive, you should be greeted by someone on our Welcome Team who will be wearing a Welcome lanyard.

We serve tea, coffee and biscuits from 10am, before the service begins. It is a great way to meet people, or simply take time to find your bearings. All refreshments are free.

Accessibility: There is wheelchair access, and a sound loop for anyone who needs it. Please let one of the Welcome Team know on your arrival and they will help you to get set up. There are disabled toilets in the main foyer.

Our Service

The main service begins at 10am with a warm welcome from one of our team members. Then follows a time of sung worship, led by our band. We typically have 2 or 3 songs lasting approximately 20 minutes. Sometimes a person might pray out loud or read a small passage from the bible. Sometimes people share things that they believe God is saying to the whole church family. This might seem strange the first time you hear it but it’s all part of our connecting with God. We then share news and notices, usually about what’s going on in the life of the church. One of our leaders will then give a sermon that is bible based and that we can apply to our everyday life. We then finish with a final worship song. Sometimes there is an opportunity to receive prayer at the end of the service.

What about my kids?

We have a great programme lined up for kids of all ages:

  • Creche (0 months to 3 years). Children under 6 months are welcome but must be accompanied by their parent/grown-up at all times.
  • Livewires (3-7 years)
  • Encounter (7-11 years)
  • Katalyst (11-15 years)
  • Young people (15+ years) Stay in service.

Children stay with their parent or grown-up at the start of the service for the welcome, songs and notices. We really value worshipping God all together as a family. At the end of the notices someone will announce that it’s time for the younger members to go to their various groups. You will need to go with your children to their groups and register them as part of our child safety policy. Whilst you are dropping your kids off at their groups, we pause to take time to chat to someone sitting near or next to us, giving folk a chance to come back before the sermon begins.

The kids group activities vary depending on the age but usually there is a friendly welcome, bible stories, testimonies, praying, music, craft, drama, fun games and free play. Please pick your children up as soon as the service finishes.


Getting Connected

Small Groups

While Sundays are a great way to meet new people, it is often in smaller gatherings that you can really get to know someone. Being part of one of our small groups allows you to make new friends, share together and support each other. We have a variety of groups that meet throughout the week, some afternoons and some evenings. Check out Small Groups and see if there’s one that you could join, or we can put you in touch with a small group leader who will be more than happy to invite you along to their group.

Serving and Volunteering

If you want to get involved in the life of the church and help us make Sundays run smoothly, you can sign up to serve on a team. 

Other Ministries

We also run the following ministries:

  • Men's Ministries
  • Women's Ministries
  • Night Shelter
  • Foodbank
