Welcome to the Ballynahinch Congregational Church website.

Ballynahinch Congregational Church was founded in 1902 and has maintained an evangelical witness in this area for over one hundred years.

Although the world has changed beyond recognition in that time, we believe that God is unchanging.

At the congregational Church we meet together as a local church to worship God and learn more about Him.

We are committed to the truth of the Bible as God's word to everyone, relevant to every area of life and in every generation.

We would like to warmly invite you and your family to join with us regularly on Sundays or perhaps some of our weekly activities.

For further information on our weekly activities and the aims of our church, please see the content at the side.


Sunday Services:    Morning Service, 11.30am      Evening Service, 6.30pm

As we approach the end of another session in GB, I can report on a varied company programme and competition scene. This years’ session began in September with a night of Icebreakers and games, this was great fun for all. Under 5’s , Explorers and Juniors followed the scripture course “Just like Jesus” looking at bible stories of Jesus’ life and how we can use our eyes, ears, mouth, hands etc to be more like Him. Seniors and Brigaders looked at Dealing with other Faiths and how we can be better witnesses for Jesus Christ and have a personal   relationship with Him.  All sections entered various competitions during the year. As the GB are 120 years old, Headquarters held an Explorer Birthday Cake collage competition and it was a thrill to hear that Annie Poots was commended for her art work. Annie, her mum and I had the privilege of going to Stormont to receive her prize. The Juniors entered the Scripture Memory Jog, marching and duster hockey competitions. Six girls gained 100% in the scripture competition and we congratulate them. For Seniors and Brigaders it was a Nail Art theme and the Seniors also competed in the 5 aside football tournament. Although we didn’t win any silverware in the competitions it was fun taking part and to meet girls from other companies. Congratulations go to Bethany McDowell who receives her Brigader Brooch tonight this is the highest award in GB. In November we held the Enrolement Service and we said “farewell“to our friends  Stephen and Elaine Walker. Stephen taught the bible classes each week and Elaine was a valued officer. We miss them both very much and wish them every blessing as they begin their new ministry in Scotland. In December we held our Annual Carol Service, a craft fair and went to Streamvale Farm and We R Vertigo for our Christmas parties. We held a sponsored games night to raise funds for GB Week in February and we thank all who contributed to this. The annual District Parade was held on Sunday and we will finish the session on Tuesday night with a Princess Party for Explorers and under 5’s and the company will go to Delamont Park. I thank God for His guidance and grace throughout the session. To parents, girls, all those who have prayed for us and helped us in so many different ways I also want to say thank you. I want to especially mention our Chaplain, the officers and associates  I couldn’t manage without their help – THANK YOU!  I look forward to seeing all the girls back in September and encourage them to bring others to Seek, Serve and Follow Christ.

Quotes From John Owen

“On Christ’s glory I would fix all my thoughts and desires, and the more I see of the glory of Christ, the more the painted beauties of this world will wither in my eyes and I will be more and more crucified to this world. It will become to me like something dead and putrid, impossible for me to enjoy.”
John Owen, The Glory of Christ


“He can make the dry parched ground of my soul to become a pool and my thirsty barren heart as springs of water. Yes he can make this habitation of dragons this heart which is so full of abominable lusts and fiery temptations to be a place of bounty and fruitfulness unto Himself”
John Owen,
The Mortification of Sin


“When we realize a constant enemy of the soul abides within us, what diligence and watchfulness we should have! How woeful is the sloth and negligence then of so many who live blind and asleep to this reality of sin. There is an exceeding efficacy nad power in the indwelling sin of believers, for it constantly inclines itself towards evil. We need to be awake, then, if our hearts would know the ways of God. Our enemy is not only upon us, as it was with Samson, but it is also in us.”
John Owen, Sin and Temptation
