Dublin is a highly progressive, creative city where the social conservatism of previous generations has been eroded. Young Irish people are highly sceptical of established forms of ‘religion’ and suspicious of authority.

Tech companies such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and Accenture’s ‘The Dock’ are leading a regeneration of inner-city areas with indie-coffee culture and bars springing up around universities, cathedrals and monuments to revolution, with European headquarters’ employing around 7000 professionals.

You are as likely to meet a Christian among Dubliners as you are on the streets of Phnom Penh!*

ICM is committed to seeing gospel-believing, gospel-living and gospel-sharing churches established and strengthened. ICM is committed to both pioneering new, and strengthening old, churches across the country.

Alex said, “It was in Jerusalem at Gafcon 2018 that ICM asked us to consider a pioneering mission work in Dublin. We are convinced that ICM’s passion for the gospel, compassion for the lost, and devotion to the Bible’s teaching is the right approach. This simple evangelical conviction distinguishes ICM from the majority of Anglican churches in the Republic of Ireland.”

Former Archbishop, Peter Jensen, said, ‘Whenever I am in Dublin, the ICM is a natural contact point. The links between Sydney at the ICM go back at least to the days of T C Hammond, who left the ICM to come and serve as a highly gifted and distinguished Principal of Moore. We remain very close friends and allies in the noble cause of Christ’s gospel.’
