Immanuel Church Dublin
Immanuel Church Dublin was a ‘re-plant’ from a small congregation of 6 people in 2008. Since then it has grown to a regular Sunday congregation of 80-90 people, meeting right in the heart of the city centre. With the help of ICM, it has run an apprenticeship scheme and sent out 19 men and women better equipped to serve in churches around the world; over half of these are now involved in full time church work. In addition Immanuel has also planted a sister church, City Church Dublin. Immanuel is led by Kieron Lynch. Kieron is married to Esther and they have 3 children.
City Church Dublin
City Church Dublin started in 2013 with evening meetings in an under used Church of Ireland building. Having gained enough momentum it moved to Sunday morning gatherings in mid-2014 and therefore had to find new premises near the law courts in Dublin. Since then it has continued to grow and now averages between 60-70 people on a Sunday morning. With the help of ICM it has run an apprenticeship scheme too and is seeking to raise up a new generation of gospel workers to meet the need in Ireland and further afield. City is also exploring the possibility of appointing a church planting resident in 2019. City is led by Mark Smith. Mark is married to Philippa and they have two young children.
Since 2012 ICM has also developed a work among the Iranian community in Ireland. The current work involves Sunday ministries, Bible studies during the week and assistance with the asylum processes. This ministry is active in both Dublin and Belfast and is now aiming to raise up indigenous leaders who will be able to grow the work in both locations. Pastor: Davood Kami: Davood is married to Jenny and they have a little girl.
