Welcome!

Welcome to the online home of our Church family here in Ballycarry

where we have been worshipping for over 400 years.

In 1613 Rev. Edward Brice was appointed to the parish of Broadisland and he began the task of reviving the Church. 

 

Ballycarry is the oldest Presbyterian Congregation in Ireland

The present church building dates from 1830.  The halls opposite, based around the old Ballycarry National School, are of a more modern construction recently extended and are used constantly for a variety of activities connected with the Church.

 

Our church is situated in what was known as Templecorran Parish 6 miles North of Carrickfergus, Co. Antrim.  It remains an area deeply rooted in its Scottish heritage and is said to be the most densely populated area where descendants of the Scottish Plantation still reside.

Step inside the church building any Sunday morning for worship and you will find a warm and friendly welcome from other worshippers.  Sit anywhere you like and admire the simple décor of the typical barn style architecture.  The pews are a recent addition and were obtained from Claremont Church in Londonderry when our building was refurbished in 1997.

Ballycarry is an expanding community striving to hold to the qualities of care and concern for ones neighbour and with several new housing developments our Church membership is also growing.  Why not come along and share with us the uplifting and relevant experience of our Church life here in Ballycarry Presbyterian Church...
