Brief history as recorded in a book ‘Lisburn’s Rich Church Heritage’ by John Kelly
Aghalee Free Presbyterian Church, the first church to have been built within the village for hundreds of years, came into existence as an extension work of the Lisburn church. The Session and Committee of Lisburn was approached and offered a site and asked if they would consider commencing a work in the village. The proposal presented a great challenge to them, as they were soon to commence work on a new building in Lisburn. After much discussion and prayer, it became clear the Lord was leading them to accept this generous offer. On 17th October 1998, the Moderator Dr Paisley, along with Dr Douglas and Mr Eric Graham were present to lay the foundation stones and work commenced on the building with some of the labour being given free of charge. Dr Paisley officially opened the new building for the preaching of the gospel on Saturday 27th February 1999, after which a two-week gospel campaign commenced. The first and present minister, the Rev Cairin Salt, was installed in September 2005 at a Service of Installation in Lisburn Free Presbyterian Church, conducted by the Rev Thomas Martin.
