This Sunday we're looking forward to meeting in Ballyhenry for our morning service at 11am. This week we take the next step in our journey into the first 8 chapters of the book of Romans. We'll be looking at chapter 2 vs 1 through to chapter 3 vs 20; where the Apostle Paul explains how no one, on their own merit, is 'righteous' before God.

Praise Group will be playing and as usual we have supervised creche / full children's provision / teenage Bible Class.

Do be encouraged to join with us, and if you are visiting be assured that you will be welcome.

This Sunday sees the beginning of a new term in Ballyhenry. At 11am we have our morning service. This is our main gathering of the week when people of all ages gather together. We provide a supervised creche for babies / young children and a full children's provision for primary / pre primary kids. Music is led by our Praise Group and the service lasts around an hour.

This week we begin our new Bible teaching series which is entitled 'Confident in Christ'. This is based on Romans 1-8. We also hope to have new Fellowship Group books available for purchase (£4). 

Here's the run down of when our various youth and children's organisations are starting in September. For further details email us on or call on 028 90836046

Here in Ballyhenry we are really looking forward to our Holiday Bible Club and our annual Meet the Neighbours Day.

Holiday Club runs from Monday 12th August - Friday 16th August. The club is for children who are going into P1 through to those who have been in P7. Each evening runs from 6.30pm-8.15pm. Children should be left off and collected each evening by an adult. There is no charge - activities include singing, Bible stories, drama, crafts and games. Always a great week - open to all within the local community.

This summer we look forward to our 11am morning services throughout the months of July and August. Each week we have a special Summer Sunday School (called Listen Up!), supervised creche and Bible Teaching, alongside music with our Praise Group.

Our evening services rest during July and August.
