Why did you call your church ‘The Journey’?
The name fits well with our vision to meet people on the journey of life and to lead them to begin the greatest journey of all; following Jesus Christ.
Are you connected to a wider group of churches?
The Journey Church is part of the Tobar Network which is connected to Emmanuel Church in Lurgan. You can find info about the Network here.
Do you have an evening service?
We meet twice a month on Sunday evenings. We have our Dwell evening service on the second Sunday of each month. Find out more about Dwell here. Cafe Connect is held at the Owl and Pussycat Cafe in Hillsborough on the fourth Sunday of the month – click here for more info.
How do I get involved in a homegroup?
Our Lifegroups work on a term-based system. Each Lifegroup lasts for approx. 10 weeks. Lifegroups are a central part of the life of the Journey Church. We want everyone who connects with us to have a really good opportunity to find some key friendships with people while they find places to develop their relationship with Jesus. Find out more here.
Where is your church building located?
The Journey Church is located on Moira Road, next to Lidl. See full address: Unit 3b, Moira Road Retail Park, 45 Moira Road, Lisburn, BT28 1RH.
Do you have kids programs on a Sunday morning?
We have a Creche available for 1 year-olds and upward. Jkidz is available for children from P1 – P7. The Jkidz programme consists of a planned series of bible stories each term using many multi-media resources. Listen out for the announcement, usually after communion, and bring your child to the creche or Jkidz room.
What do you believe about the Gifts of the Holy Spirit?
We believe the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 12-14) continue today. We practice these gifts throughout the life of our church.
What does a typical Sunday morning look like?
We begin with 20-30 minutes of passionate, engaging, contemporary worship. We celebrate communion each Sunday morning and we have 30-40 mins of quality, relevant Bible teaching. Some Sunday mornings we create space for prophetic ministry. Our children join us for half the service before going out to their own groups.
How can I give financially to The Journey Church?
Most people give to the church via monthly standing order. We also lift a cash offering on Sunday mornings and others give one-off gifts via bank transfer (give bank details). As a UK charity, we are registered for gift-aid. If you are a UK taxpayer the government will increase your gift by 25%. All you need to do is sign a one-off gift-aid declaration form.
