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.

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

"It is not the glorious battlements, the painted windows, the crouching gargoyles that support a building, but the stones that lie unseen in or upon the earth. It is often those who are despised and trampled on that bear up the weight of a whole nation"


"When sin lets us alone we may let sin alone; but as sin is never less quiet than when it seems to be most quiet, and its waters are for the most part deep when they are still, so ought our contrivances against it to be vigorous at all times and in al."


"It is not the distance of the earth from the sun, nor the sun’s withdrawing itself, that makes a dark and gloomy day; but the interposition of clouds and vaporous exhalations. Neither is thy soul beyond the reach of the promise, nor does God withdraw Himself; but the vapours of thy carnal, unbelieving heart do cloud thee."


"Let our hearts admit, “I am poor and weak. Satan is too subtle, too cunning, too powerful; he watches constantly for advantages over my soul. The world presses in upon me with all sorts of pressures, pleas, and pretences. My own corruption is violent, tumultuous, enticing, and entangling. As it conceives sin, it wars within me and against me. Occasions and opportunities for temptation are innumerable. No wonder I do not know how deeply involved I have been with sin. Therefore, on God alone will I rely for my keeping.   I will continually look to Him."
