Welcome to the Old Congregation Presbyterian Church, Randalstown. We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland with around 400 families. The congregation was officially formed around 1655 and you can read a short history on another page. We have a wide range of organisations catering for all ages. Our worship is a blend of the traditional and the contemporary. We are keen to develop our ministry among the young and to reach out to the wider community inspired by our motto - To know Jesus and lovingly to make Him known.
The Sunday teaching programme is supplemented by a Midweek Bible Study running from September to Easter alternating weekly as a Bible Study and Prayer meeting. Intermittently we run courses such as Christianity Explored, Caring for the Family, and other subjects as part of our commitment to a wider ministry. From time to time Services with special subjects and speakers are arranged to reach a wider audience.
In Hebrews Ch. 10 verse 25, we read - "Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as you see the day approaching"
There are also a lot of organisations meeting which cater for children, young people and adults also. Please pray for those involved in leading those organisations and all who serve the Lord within our Church Family. Most of all, I would be delighted to see you coming along to be a part of all that will happen, God willing, at the OC. I know that you will be made most welcome.
We are indeed living in unprecedented times in our land as we all try our best to cope with lockdown in effort to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Since we can't come along to the church building for worship, we will be posting recordings of our services on our church website, our church Facebook page and on YouTube. If you need help or assistance of any kind during these difficult times email the manse
We have returned to in person services each Sunday morning at 11.30 AM, please check out the Covid-19 page to ensure you are aware of the changes and also to pre-register your attendance. The Church have committed to providing the services online as well, so please do not feel pressured to attend in person.
