Greetings from the Minister


I’m David Campton, and I was appointed to Dundonald Methodist Church in July 2004. I was born and brought up in East Belfast and two of my brothers live in the area, so being sent to this congregation was like coming home.  I hope that you will find yourself at home with us too.

I am married to Sally, who is Project Coordinator of our partner community project, Dundonald Family and Community Initiative (DFCI). We have two boys, Owain and Ciaran.
Previous to ministering here in Dundonald I served in Sandy Row and Springfield Road on the Belfast Central Mission Circuit, and before that I was Superintendent of the Glastry and Portaferry Circuit on the Ards Peninsula. Before entering the ordained ministry I worked in the theatre after qualifying from Edinburgh University with a biology degree. I still retain an interest in drama, and biology, as well as music, rugby, football, reading, cooking (and eating).

As well as being the pastor here in Dundonald, I also serve as

  1. Superintendent of the Knock Circuit
  2. Convener of Faith and Order Committee of Methodist Church in Ireland
  3. Member of Edgehill Theological College Board of Governors
  4. Chair of Churches’ Community Work Alliance (NI)

Whilst this page describes me as THE minister, I see myself as A minister among many here in Dundonald Methodist. Indeed we believe that all the members of God’s church are ministers in their own right. My role as a pastor and teacher in Dundonald Methodist is to help the members of this church discover and develop their own ministries, both within the local church and further afield, as they grow in their discipleship of Jesus. Why don’t you come along and join us as we seek to minister to our local community and play our part in the ministry of Jesus to the whole world?

Grace and Peace
