West Church Ballymena

Discipleship Ministry


This is one of the key activities of our church life. Its objective is to make us more like Christ in thought, knowledge and action. To assist in this great work, we have a Discipleship Ministry Team who, with enthusiasm and hard work, run several programmes aimed at helping us to grow closer to God.




To help focus our Christian lives with prayer, praise and Bible study we have Home Bible Study Groups. They meet in an informal setting to share the Christian faith and to provide the pastoral support that we all need. It's a 'safe place to grow'.




Our minister, Rev. Daniel Kane provides a fortnightly opportunity through the Mid Week Meeting to come together in a more formal setting, when he opens up the scriptures in a relevant and lively way.




The Library and Resource Centre is found in the Simpson Hall and is open following Sunday morning and evening worship. The resources are many and varied. The range of books, videos and audio tapes, is designed to help us in our private Bible study and devotions and caters for all age groups.




Centurions is a men’s group which meets fortnightly at 7.30 pm on Thursday evening in the Lounge. It is an opportunity for younger men in the congregation to come together (over tea/coffee) for fellowship, worship, prayer and bible study; sharing thoughts, ideas and opinions on the topics raised, in a very relaxed atmosphere.




CD and DVD recordings are produced for all our services. Copies of these are available for those who are unable to come out to church, or for those would like a recording of a particular service. Please contact the office for details.




We regularly run the Alpha Course in West Church and have over 150 members who have experienced this life changing course. The benefits have been immense and we would encourage you to consider this important way to explore the meaning of life in a friendly and non threatening atmosphere.


If you would like to join any of these activities or become involved in the Discipleship Ministry Team itself, then please contact any member of the Ministerial Team.
