KNOWING JESUS & MAKING JESUS KNOWN

 

Ballinasloe Christian Fellowship is a non-denominational church, affiliated to the Calvary Chapel Ireland network.

 

 

We began meeting in Hayden's Hotel in 2006 under the leadership of Pastor Gary & Holly Gilbert, after the Lord very clearly led them to Ballinasloe & asked  them to start leading Bible Studies here.

 

In May 2007 we were able to convert an old barn on a church family's farm with the help of a team from Seneca Falls Calvary Chapel, New York.

 

In July 2009, the leadership of Ballinasloe Christian Fellowship was handed over to Pastor Tim & Marie Quinlan, an Irish couple with a passion to share the grace & love of God's salvation with all around them.

After a number of years of active ministry, we then found ourselves outgrowing our church home in the barn, and in July 2015 started to meet on Sundays in the Shearwater Hotel. At the beginning of 2018 we have just been able to purchase our own building in the centre of Ballinasloe and are excited for what God has planned.

As a church group, we come from all walks in life, but we find that we are united by our love for Jesus and the joy that comes from hearing & seeing the  freedom that He brings to each individual. It is our heart's desire that as we continue to love and serve our local community, many more people will experience the goodness & salvation of Jesus for themselves.
