Who We Are

Hillside Community Church is a group of ordinary people who are committed to following Jesus Christ.We have been a part of the community in Ballymena North for over thirty years. We seek to make ourselves open and accessible to the individuals and families living on our ‘doorstep’, as well as those from the wider Ballymena area.

We welcome people from all backgrounds, so whether you are just curious about Christianity, or are a committed Christian who wants to grow stronger in your faith, you can find a home here at Hillside.

As well as providing a warm environment for visitors, Hillside members are characterised by a genuine love for each other. Though relatively small in number, we believe this offers a unique sense of family, within which we can support and encourage one another.

Sunday at Hillside

Visitors, whether individuals, couples or families, are always made welcome at Hillside. Our services are relaxed and informal; some people dress smartly and others are more casual, so whatever you are wearing, you won’t feel uncomfortable.

Our Sunday morning service starts at 10.30am, and finishes around 11.50am. It is mainly led from the front, but also incorporates a short time of reflective worship, when anyone is free to participate. The main focus is on the sharing of communion and Bible teaching from one of our elders or a guest speaker. Tea, coffee and some sweet treats are served immediately afterwards.

The programme content of our fortnightly Sunday evening meetings, at 6.30pm, varies from week to week. However, we aim to keep them more relaxed and visitor-friendly.  A key part of each night is an opportunity to get to know each other better with conversation over supper, from 7.30pm onwards. This is served in our minor hall, which is set out with small coffee tables and chairs.
