Keel Club

Our Keel Club for primary school age children runs term time on Monday nights between 645-745pm. It’s a fun, fast paced mix of games, Bible stories and quiz time. All our leaders are child protection trained and love having fun with the kids.

But guess what – CV19 has stopped the Club for a while! Back soon.

Nehemiah - God being gracious

We’re doing a series on Nehemiah in the mornings. A lot of books on Nehemiah talk about leadership. There is a degree to which we can do that. But really, Nehemiah is all about the faithfulness of God to broken people. We need to hear that right now in Ballykeel! At night we keep going with our study in John’s Gospel? Are you born again? If not, then it’s God’s pleasure  to change you!

We’ll get back to this when the current online phase finishes.

Small groups

We have lots of choice for small groups through the week: mens, women, mixed, young adults, new to the faith, day time, night time, fortnightly, monthly. Pick the group that suits your time and will help you grow deeper in the Christian faith.

Our vision going forward

At the 2017 AGM I shared about the past year in Ballykeel. I talked about the difficulties we have experienced as a congregation, as well as the encouragements. Specifically I spoke about the long term vision for the congregation which is spelled out for us in Scripture. This is the vision from Matthew Ch 22 – the parable of the King’s wedding banquet. In this parable, the King desires that his servants invite as many “as they can find” to his son’s wedding party. It is a picture of the Gospel invitation going out to as many people as we can find, whether in Ballykeel or beyond.

To that end we must pray. We need to pray for more people to come to Jesus Christ in faith. We need to pray from this, that people commit to sharing and love of His church around the Lord’s Table. Long term we need to pray that people emerge to serve.

None of this will happen unless you or I know the Lord’s love in deeper ways. We will only pray when we see the impulse of His love for us. May God show us more of His Gospel.
