In 1963, a group of young people from the district invited evangelists - Mr Noel Grant and Mr Matt Boland to conduct a Gospel Mission. The Mission was held in a Nissan Hut at Kinallen, kindly granted by Mrs R. S. Hart. During the Mission precious souls were saved and God’s people were blessed.
The work was continued by a committee consisting of Miss Ina Hart, Samuel Moore, William Gamble, Henry Purdy and Aubrey Malcolmson. Gospel services were planned for the second and fourth Sabbath night of each month and a prayer meeting for every Monday night. A children’s meeting was held once a fortnight for the boys and girls of the district and is still well attended.
Over the years special efforts were made to win the lost for Christ. In 1974, a Mission was conducted by Mr John Morrow, a C.W.U. Evangelist. At the Mission the Gospel was faithfully preached and many souls came to know Jesus Christ as their Saviour.
The present hall at Kinallen was erected in 1979 and was dedicated for the preaching of the Gospel by the Rev. Robert Hanna, B.A. - Minister of Dromara Reformed Presbyterian Church.
Mr. William Gamble, who supplied this brief history of Kinallen Mission Hall concludes by saying, “We thank God for the blessing of His work through the years. To God be the Glory”.
