Castlederg Christian Fellowship



Castlederg Christian Fellowship was planted by Pastor Mark Taggart (LL.B) on a Sunday Morning 3 December 2017 after numerous clear directions from the Lord to do so. Pastor Mark at 25 years old received the call of God upon his life “to preach and teach the word of God” in an early morning Friday prayer meeting on 24th March 2006. On that morning Isaiah 58 was a chapter that God brought to his attention and it has been so key at every turn since! How we need ministry in the Word that is “like a spring of water, whose waters fail not” and how we need to be emboldened by the Holy Spirit to “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet!”.

However it took over a decade for the Lord to work out in his life what He had called Mark to do by His Spirit.

Pastor Mark Taggart Castlederg Christian Fellowship

In the mean time Pastor Mark studied Law at Queens University Belfast, a Legal Practice Course at Nottingham Trent University and practised Law as a Solicitor in London for a number of years. He was still on a spiritual roller coaster himself these years, having become a Christian relatively recently at 20 years old from a Catholic background,- and so God was dealing with Him in many ways (and still is).

However God had a plan,- and after clear direction Mark planted Castlederg Christian Fellowship in 2017 with his wife Niamh and two children supporting him!

Although the church is yet very young here God has already been so faithful in that many people have come to know and love the Lord through the ministry here and many have been built up and edified in their faith!  God has also been faithful in bringing along people who love Jesus and are willing to serve Him. When we opened the door in Castlederg on the first Sunday morning we were opening with a number of 4 people in total that we knew would be there (Mark, Marks wife Niamh and their two children!).

However God moved peoples hearts to partner in the ministry and brought along our Worship Leader James Goldie and his family on that very first morning! James and his wife Gillian have been such a support these past years and a blessing to all who attend.

We thank God for people using their spiritual gifts for Gods glory!

Everyone involved here is excited to see what God will do in the years to come.

We believe Him for more. We expect more. We pray for more. We believe He has promised us more.

It would be so great if you chose to visit us – and join in with what God is doing and planning to do here in this needy region of the nation.

May The Lord save, bless and keep you all as you put your trust in Jesus alone.

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the LORD will answer; you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.”
