Ballymena Baptist Church


Thursday Fellowship (50+)

Over 15 years ago the late Mrs June McAllister had the vision to develop a ministry for the over 50s (or more mature) in our Fellowship and Community. Since then it has gone from strength to strength!

We meet on the second Thursday of each month at 10.45am (except July & August).

There is a varied and interesting programme including such things as:
– Armchair aerobics, quizzes, Caring Canines, flower arranging, Tear Fund, hymn singing, cooking for one, taking care of your feet etc.
– Generally a speaker brings a closing word.
– The highlight of the morning for many is the hot meal prepared in the kitchen and served in the main hall.

If you fall into this age group and would like to meet others you’re very welcome to join us! Transport is available – and pick-ups are done from many of the Folds locally.


Meets on the first Thursday of each month from October through to May at 8.00pm. We are essentially a support ministry for missionaries, focussed primarily on the work of Baptist Missions in Ireland, Peru, France and Spain. We also have have visiting speakers from a range of other missions, and at Christmas each year we organise a Shoe Box Appeal for Blythswood Care which go to families in Eastern Europe. Our main ministry is prayer and time is set aside at each meeting to pray, using Missionline for specific topics. Ladies of all ages are very welcome to join us each month.
