Maranatha began because of a miracle in the life of Pastor Gerard Dunphy in 1982.  From its early days in the kitchen of his home,  Maranatha Christian Community Church Waterford has grown into a strong and exciting community.  Maranatha is a friendly, multicultural,  growing,  Irish church with a vision to be groundbreaking, relevant and Christ-centred.

We are a group of ordinary people of all ages, professions and backgrounds.  Although we come from different walks of life we have all discovered a real and meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.
