Welcome to the United Parish of Ballynure & Ballyeaston (Ballyclare).
We have two centres of worship – Christ Church, Church Road, Ballynure and St John’s, Doagh Road, Ballyclare.
Whether you already feel at home within a church context or whether this is your first real encounter with a church family, we desire to welcome everyone in and to be a community church where our love of God becomes the motivation for everything we do, and through him to share His love to everyone within our community, whatever age or stage you are in your spiritual journey. So know you are welcome, because He welcomes you.
You will see throughout every aspect of our church life a DNA that weaves its way through everything. These are our values which God has placed on our hearts for a time such as this. Have a look at our Core Values page which will explain these in more detail.
Our values keep reminding us of how we should use our resources and where to use them for God’s glory. These become the litmus test to keep reminding us why we exist.
As Pastor of this Church family, I often say to my family that if we were not serving here, the United Parish would definitely be the place where we would want to worship because of that real sense of love, welcome and worship. I hope you also decide to make this your family, loved by God, loved by your brothers & sisters in Christ.
Please introduce yourself to me so I can tell you more about our Parish. Welcome to the United Parish.
Revd Jonny Campbell-Smyth (Rector)
