Gospel meetings at Ballymacbrennan and Beanstown Mission Hall

Having almost completed an article on all churches in Lisburn and the surrounding area, a member of a Lisburn City Centre church, visited Ballymacbrennan and Beanstown Mission Hall last weekend to add the final touches to the article.  Showing over 400 photographs of over 130 churches and all ministers and a brief history of each church, the article, which is now complete, provides an instant link to all available church websites, and also to books and church publications currently on the this website, www.lisburn.com which is owned and managed by Mr Jim Collins.

On Sunday afternoon 6th November 2005, he visited Beanstown Mission Hall, on the Beanstown Road, Lisburn, where Gospel Meetings are held on the first Sunday afternoon of each month at 3.30pm, under the leadership of Robert Watson and his sister Mrs. Margaret Sharkey.  The service last Sunday afternoon was led by Margaret Sharkey, and Rosemary Cambell on the organ, led the praise.  The guest speaker was Mr. Tom McKinstry who spoke about the work of Bible Centred Ministries (B.C.M.).
