Welcome to St. James, Donagheady

Welcome to our website! Our parish church is part of the Diocese of Derry and Raphoe within the church of Ireland. In recent years the diocese has developed a clear vision which describes its character and purpose. That vision is encapsulated in the words ‘Transforming Community, Radiating Christ’. Here in Donemana we are seeking to fulfill this vision in our local community and to achieve this we are committed to the following steps.

• We are called to develop growing and transforming communities of faith
• We expect to see growth in church and community life
• We are committed to worship that is thought-provoking, energizing and magnetic

We Serve in TEAMS
• We promote unity and peace within our own life as a diocese and within the whole family of God
• We aim to share unity of purpose and to model respectful relationships
• We seek to share common life and action with other Christian traditions
• We have strategic teams in the diocese to enable growth and transformation

• We look outwards and engage compassionately with those in need
• We work to see lives transformed for the good of the world and to the glory of God
• We want to be inspired by leaders who are purposeful, imaginative and are themselves being transformed

So our vision is
• Growing Deeper in our relationship to God
• Growing Closer in our relationships and fellowship with one another
• Growing wider by sharing the Good News of the Kingdom of God with everyone, by word and deed
