Calry Sunday School Nativity

Calry is a community-minded Church of Ireland church of all ages on a God-given journey. To help us we have the compass of God’s word the Bible, the companionship of the Lord Jesus and the comfort and conviction of the Holy Spirit to give us what we need when we need it.

Our main weekly meeting is on a Sunday morning, but we also meet in smaller groups at other times in the week. We gather so as to worship God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit, to be taught from his word, empowered by his Spirit, to pray and to build open and honest friendships with each other so that we can make a difference in the wider world – locally, nationally and further afield still.

We are very glad of our partnership in the gospel with other churches in the Sligo area, both Church of Ireland and of other denominations. If you’re not actively involved in a church community or have recently moved to Sligo we’d love you to join us – whatever your colour, age or background.

Calry is part of the united dioceses of Kilmore, Elphin & Ardagh. The Bishop is Rt Revd Dr Ferran Glenfield.  The Rector of Calry is Canon Patrick Bamber. He is married to Pippa and they have three boys Gus, Ambrose and Bertie and a daughter Myrtle. The Church Wardens are Charles Roberts and Jim Shannon, and the Glebe Wardens Graham Hewston and David Henry.

The children and vulnerable adult protection policy of the Church of Ireland is called Safeguarding Trust. The Parish Panel for Calry is made up of three people: Charles Roberts (071 91 46176), Hilda Latten (071 91 42066) and the Rector (071 91 46516). Each of them can be contacted in confidence regarding any concern of this nature.

This website also tells you about Cosycats (childcare) and gives a link to The Catalysts website (over 50’s) both excellent community groups that make use of the converted basement of Calry Church, called The Catacombs, and were set up as projects of Calry Select Vestry.

Calry has a long and cherished relationship with Sligo Grammar School, where the Rector is Chaplain.
