CONGREGATION

Ballydown Presbyterian Church is part of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland. We are located on the edge of Banbridge with easy access from the A1.
We have 200 families connected with us - about 550 people. We are now meeting in our new building and enjoying the extra space and modern facilities.
Our worship services are at 10am and 11.30am on Sunday and you are very welcome to join us. Come casual - we do! The important thing is that we meet with God in worship and know his presence in our lives.

MINISTER

I am Liam Rutherford. I am from Cookstown, married to Eleanor and we have three children. I came to faith in Christ when I was 17 years old and really started to grow as a Christian through the influence of my home church and the Christian Union at QUB. After graduating I was employed by Bombardier for 3 years.
From 1996 to 2005 we served the Lord in the Philippines with OMF. We were sent out as tribal missionaries and ended up establishing a radio ministry to reach the tribal peoples of central Mindanao. This ministry continues today and is run by local believers. We returned home in 2005 and I started to prepare for ministry within PCI. I was called to Ballydown in March 2010.

ADMINISTRATOR

Hello, my name is Donna Thompson. I grew up in Glengormley where I became a Christian when I was 10 years old after hearing the gospel at a local Good News Club.
I am married to Andrew and we have two sons, Ben and Nathan.
I am a member of Elmwood Presbyterian Church in Lisburn where I am involved with the Toddler Group and Children’s Ministry.
I have spent almost all of my working life in administration serving God with Christian organisations. Recently I took up lettering - which has been a real challenge for someone who is left-handed!
