Church History

In the early 1930's Glengormley was a small village. A tent mission was held in Portland Avenue. As a result a Church was formed in 1932. A new building was opened on the 24th May that year.


Over the succeeding years the church has had serveral pastors- Captain H. Hodgett, Pastor Boreland, Pastor Jack Johnston, Pastor David Burrows, Pastor Haire and Pastor Lyttle. It was during Pastor Lyttle's ministry that the need for a larger building was evident. This was opened on 22nd March 1975.


A new hall was constructed especially for youth work and was opened on the 20th April 1985, during Pastor Silas Henry's ministry. Dr George Gray succeeded Pastor Henry. The Church grew over these years as Glengormley grew. Pastor Mark Tweedie followed Dr George Gray until 2004. In September 2016 Pastor Jonathan Rea joined the church and Steve Dodds took up the role as Youth Pastor within the church.


The emphasis of the church was and still is fellowship and missionary interest, with society needing to be reached with the Gospel of Christ. The church reaches out to the local community through School's work, Ignite Youth Club, Ignite Groups Drop In,Youth Fellowship, Engage, Keenagers Divorce Care, Women's Fellowship and Men's Breakfast.
