Brief history as recorded in a book ‘Lisburn’s Rich Church Heritage’ by John Kelly
The Reformed Presbyterian Church decided in 1979 to plant a church in Lisburn. The Rev Robert McCollum was sent by the Eastern Presbytery to organise this new venture and later became its first minister. A congregation was established in October 1982. This new congregation bought the disused St. Mark’s building on the Nettlehill Road and after major renovation and extension opened the building for worship in April 1985. Since then two plots of land, adjacent to the building, were purchased to provide a car park. The congregation is located in an expanding part of Lisburn and reaches out with the Gospel to the local community. The present minister, the Rev. Professor Robert McCollum, was installed here in January 1982. From March to June 2009, Mr John Coates will be assistant to Professor McCollum.
