Ballywatt Presbyterian Church
Ballywatt is part of the larger Presbyterian Church in Ireland. The Presbyterian form of Christian faith is best described as 'reformed & evangelical' with its strong emphasis on the Sovereignty of God, the Kingship of Christ and the authority of the Bible, in which God has spoken and through which the Holy Spirit speaks to us today. It is this conviction which shapes our life together at Ballywatt. As a congregation we are committed to teaching of the Bible (Old & New Testaments) systematically and clearly week by week. This is reflected in the preaching at the Sunday services and in our other groups which meet during the week.
Whatever your background, whatever your experience of church, we trust that you will find Ballywatt to be a welcoming community.
You will find Ballywatt to be a congregation which embraces a wide age range of people from all walks of life.
We don’t mind how you dress and we don’t mind where you sit - you will be very welcome.
Ballywatt Church has approximately 150 families, many of whom have lived and farmed in the area for generations. The distinctive red roofed Church building can be clearly seen from the main Ballymoney to Portrush Road, although it has a Coleraine address. The present building was erected in 1895. The nearby Moore Memorial Hall was opened in 1911 and is designed in the same style as the church.
The church buildings have been extensively renovated in recent years and serve as a focus for the local community.
United in Christ by faith we are stronger and ready to meet life’s daily challenges together
