About Us

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please feel free to explore to learn more about who we are, what we do and why we do it.

Dungannon Independent Methodist Church is located in Moygashel, next to Dungannon and the M1 motorway.  We are a family-focused, evangelical Christian fellowship, seeking to show God’s love and impact the community around us.  

The Church is part of the ‘Fellowship of Independent Methodist Churches’ in Northern Ireland and was established in 1973.  Those who attend the church come from all walks of life and many can testify to how knowing God personally has made a positive difference in their lives.

The church exists to be a witness of how God can change lives; to show how knowing God and being forgiven of your sins by Him can give you peace and joy.  We are a body of Christians who are here to help; we love the Lord and His Word, and seek to share this with those around us.

Feel free to come and visit us; everyone is welcome!

Rev. Robert Maxwell

Our Beliefs

  • The Independent Methodists are a body of Christians who evidence their genuine experience of God’s saving grace by practical godliness and by earnestly seeking to conform to the whole will of God as revealed in the Holy Scriptures. 
  • They do not believe that God or the Bible has changed to accommodate the fashionable tendencies of the age and solemnly protest against any introduction of wordiness into the Church. 
  • The cost of discipleship is the same now as it was in the days of the Apostles, therefore if any will be His disciple, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily and follow Christ. It is necessary to come out from the world and be separate, renouncing all vain and pomp and glory, adorning oneself with modest attire. 
  • In doctrine we are Methodist. We believe in the doctrine of the Trinity. a general atonement, the necessity and the possibility of the New Birth for all men, the witness of the Spirit, the ministry of divine healing, future rewards and punishments, the Second Coming of Christ and that it is the privilege of every believe to be sanctified wholly and to be preserved blameless unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. All our members are expected to enjoy this experience or to seek diligently until they obtain it. 
  • We are opposed to the present false Ecumenical Movement and to the World Council of Churches and we will not share in any of their activities. We are glad to have fellowship with born again members of other denominations.

Missionaries

Brooks Family

Brooks Family

Danny and Philippa Brooks have been missionaries with New Tribes Mission for almost twenty years. Danny is from California, USA, while Philippa was born and raised in Dungannon. She was saved and then called into missionary work through various ministries within the fellowship of Independent Methodist churches. Danny was saved as a young boy and also challenged into missionary work through his church. Danny and Philippa, along with their two children Isabela and Judah, spent 14 years involved in church planting ministries in the Philippines. They lived for 10 years in a remote village and had the joy of seeing a group of people come to know the Lord as their Saviour. In 2017, they moved into another unreached people group on a different island. However, shortly after, Danny was diagnosed with cancer and they had to return to the States for a long course of treatment. Danny and Philippa are currently at the Ethnos360 Training Center in Missouri, teaching, training and equipping the next generation of missionaries. They still hope to return to the Philippines, though count it a great privilege to love and serve the Lord wherever He places them. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 “Faithful is He who calleth you, who also will do it.”
