Sunday congregations are multi-denominational in character, with people from Anglican, other Protestant and Roman Catholic backgrounds. In recent years, the congregations have become multi-cultural, with people from Ireland, Britain, Europe, U.S.A., India, Sri Lanka and Africa among others represented. The church seeks to be open, inclusive and welcoming to all who come to worship.

On Sundays, a small group of people gather for Holy Communion at 8.30 a.m.
In September 2004 in order to accommodate increasing numbers in a modest church building, to encourage growth of the church family and to develop the ministry of the wide church we took a step of faith and divided the later morning service and now offer two services at 10.00 a.m. and 11.30 a.m.
The 10.00 a.m. service is a lively, fresh and informal Service of the Word format, lead by a music/praise group with the aid of visual presentations. A crèche, Sunday Club and Junior Youth Fellowship are provided at this service. Over a hundred adults and anything up to 80 children and young people regularly attend the 10.00 a.m. service.
Refreshments (Real Fair Trade Coffee!, Tea, Juice and Biscuits) are served in the adjoining Parish Centre between the two main morning services. This is to allow continued fellowship and to ensure the people at both the 10.00 a.m. and 11.30 a.m. services have an opportunity to meet.
By Kill’s standards the 11.30 a.m. service is a little more formal. It uses the Service of the Word and BCP Holy Communion 2004 Service on alternate weeks. Up to 100 adults and a smaller number of children attend this service.
In both the 10.00 a.m. and 11.30 a.m. services we use printed sheets rather than books. This allows regulars and visitors alike to feel part of the service, even if they are not familiar with the Church of Ireland Liturgy.
A Prayer Meeting takes place in the Parish Centre on Sunday evenings at 6.30pm.
