It's my pleasure to welcome you to the Ballymena Methodist Church website. The importance of a warm welcome from a church cannot be underestimated. My family's personal experience bears that out - while looking for a church in a new area we were warmly welcomed at the door by an older couple. The experience of being made to feel genuinely welcome that first day, and the ongoing love and care of that congregation led to us remaining in that church until I entered ministry!
Ballymena Methodist Church has a reputation for being a warm and welcoming congregation. I have seen that welcome extended to me in so many ways since I moved here in July 2020 - and I look forward to seeing the fullness of that welcome when we are able to meet together properly in the future.
I hope you will find our website both welcoming and informative and, if you happen to find yourself in Ballymena, either having moved here or just visiting the area, you will come along and experience the warmth of our welcome for yourself.
“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous; and whoever gives even a cup of cold water to one of these little ones in the name of a disciple - truly I tell you, none of these will lose their reward.” (The words of Jesus in Matthew 10: 40-42)
