Our children go back to school in September but have you
ever felt as an adult that you could do with some classes in
the Christian faith?
The Covenant Protestant Reformed Church (CPRC) in Ballymena
is a church that emphasizes teaching, as well as doing.

catechism classes for children, we have two weekly classes
on Tuesday mornings and Wednesday evenings.

Christ's intercession for His people? How does Scripture
assure us of His love, power and wisdom in praying for us,
purifying our prayers and bringing us to our heavenly Father
in prayer? This is the subject of article 26 of the Belgic
Confession, penned by Reformation martyr, Guido de Bres, in

that, through his sad home life with his wife and her three
children, God's relationship to wayward Israel would be
Questions and discussion are encouraged, and tea and coffee
are served at both classes at the CPRC, 83 Clarence Street
(off the Cullybackey Road) in Ballymena. For more
