Location and history

Our Church is located at the junction of Woodvale Road and Ballygomartin Road in North Belfast, Northern Ireland. See Google map of the area.

The building was first opened in 1899.

Many changes have occured in the area over the years. But the Church still stands, a home to the congregation and a witness to the area.

The story of the congregation has been told in two booklets. The first was written in 1959. It was called "Treasure in Earthern Vessels. The second was written to mark the centenary of the congregation in 1999. It was called "Great is Thy Faithfulness". Some of these are still available for purchase.

Should you ever wish to visit the congregation you will be very welcome. We generally have two Sunday services. The morning service begins at 11.00.  We provide a cup of tea or coffee before most of our morning services (September to May). The evening service begins at 7.00.
