About Us

Priesthill (Zion) Methodist is situated on the Kesh Road, just outside Lisburn and Hillsborough. Well known land marks in the area include:

  • the Down Royal Racecourse - the oldest Racecourse in Ireland
  • the world renowned Maze Prison
  • Hillsborough Castle

A Methodist society has been in existence at Priesthill for two centuries and our church building is over 150 years old. Priesthill is part of the Down district and Lisburn & Dromore Circuit of the Methodist Church.

John Wesley wrote of the area in his journal on Monday 26th Jul 1756:

"The country between Lisburn and Moira is much like Berkshire, having fruitful vales in each side of the road, and well wooded hills running even with them, at a small distance."

As a church our vision is is summed up in our mission statement and through it we hope to fulfil God's will: "Centred in Christ, Caring for People"

This is reflected in our Sunday worship and our Child, Youth and Adult ministries.
