Mark & Melanie arrived in Ballymena in June 2014, after 25 years in Scotland, having pastored Elim churches in Edinburgh and Aberdeen. Both originally come from Carrickfergus/Whitehead, so they are delighted to home again in Norn Iron!
Married for 25 years, they have two incredible daughters (they are a bit biased), Grace and Georgie. Mark is a teaching pastor with a passion to see people won for Christ and move into deeper relationship with Him.
Ballymena Elim is a Pentecostal church that seeks to be contemporary and relevant in declaring the timeless message of Jesus. We love worshipping God, we love learning about God and we want to live for God. Why? Because we have found the love, reality and truth of Christ to be life giving and life changing.
Whoever you are, wherever you’re from – you’re welcome to join us on the journey of discovering more of this amazing God.
If you’re looking for a new church home, or would like prayer or an opportunity to talk or simply find out more information about Christianity or the church, then we’d love to welcome you personally. The church has a wide and varied ministry programme serving all ages.
