Welcome to Knockbracken Congregational Church

We are glad to have you with us. On this site you will discover something of what we believe; find out how to locate us; and have the opportunity to access our archive of recorded sermons. And, if you have any questions – just ask!

Jesus said 'If you love Me, keep my commandments.'

John 14:15


We are meeting online until the 21 March. Sundays at 11:30am.

New lockdown Restrictions for Northern Ireland were announced last week. Churches were not forced to close their doors by law, but we as a church have taken the decision to move our services online for the time being in order to protect our own people, and give assurance that we want to assist in the effort to contain the spread of the virus, and in no way want to add to the problem, nor to act irresponsibly in any way. The leadership team will continue to keep things under review, and will prayerfully make decisions as we feel God would lead us, and not simply be swayed by popular opinion or knee jerk reaction, or panic.

Usually our Minister, Calvin Coulter, preaches at most of our services.

He will explain things as we go along but the format is quite simple. We read from the Bible, sing some hymns (usually three or four), Calvin will pray and then he will speak for about half an hour. Services usually last just over an hour.

Tea and coffee are served after many of our services, and these are great opportunities to get to know one another, form and renew friendships, and ask those puzzling questions that have been buzzing around in our heads since mid-way through the sermon.

What's On

Prayer & Bible Study

If you are visiting with us for the first time, then you are particularly welcome.

At Knockbracken, we believe that God communicates with us primarily through his written word, the Bible. For this reason, we take great care to think through what he is saying to us. Every Sunday service and Wednesday night centre around the teaching of the Bible. Our minister explains the passage, and is always happy to answer questions afterward.

We recognise that, for some, just coming into a church building can be an intimidating experience. We work hard to prevent that and can promise that, if you are a fist-time visitor, no one will put you on the spot or embarrass you. You are welcome to contact us ahead of your visit, so we can look out for you and make you welcome. Just email Calvin our minister, and he’ll be sure to look out for you and find someone to give a personal welcome, and even sit with you for through the service.

We will be meeting in person on Sunday for our Easter Service, but here is a short message for Good Friday 2021
