Church History

Few records appear to have been kept about the early part of the Ballyclare Church history.  The church was built in 1828 and a large hall was added around 1950.  After suffering many times from the river flooding the property, major renovations took place in 2000 when the floors were raised by half a metre. The large hall was realigned allowing for more rooms both downstairs and upstairs.  A new kitchen and toilets were installed, 2 additional rooms downstairs, and the vestry and choir room upstairs.  In 2005, when new windows were installed in the church, three stained glass windows were added.
