What we offer

Important Announcement

Sunday worship is to be ceased until further notice.

Also until further notice, steps should be taken to ensure that numbers attending funeral services and weddings are kept as low as possible.

The minister will communicate somehow on Sunday, method still to be decided.

Rev Nancy will visit anyone who requests it but will probably keep in contact mostly by phone (number below).

Anyone in need of shopping delivered or any other help please don’t hesitate to call 07539018213.

In addition, the Kirk session had already taken the decision to cancel all activities in our church halls for the foreseeable future.

We encourage you to be responsible and remember the weak and vulnerable and above all pray and trust in our great God.

Bushmills caters for different ages and interests. For those who want to discover who Jesus is and to find out how to live for him, there are times for prayer and Bible study. Our youth programme has undergone an extensive review and we seek to influence young lives for God as well as for good.

Here are some of the groups in church life:

Crèche – a well equipped, safe space with fully trained leaders meets during morning worship for children of 0-3 years.

Children’s Church – our Sunday School, which meets during the second part of Sunday morning worship for primary school-age children to get to know God. There’s a Bible-based curriculum and Catechism for children to follow.

Bush Tots – we meet on Wednesday mornings from 9:45am -11:45am in the Hamill Hall for a cuppa and chat for the adults with lots of fun for the little ones.

Youth Club – join us on Saturday nights from 6:00pm – 8:00pm in the Hamill Hall. All secondary school age children are welcome, whether involved with the congregation or not.
