(1) About the CPRC

(in Chinese 中文)

Welcome to the website of the Covenant Protestant Reformed Church (CPRC), Ballymena, Northern Ireland! We are a congregation of Reformed believers which bears a clear and distinctive witness to the biblical and Reformed faith as summarized in the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism and the Canons of Dordt—our official creeds. We believe in the glorious doctrine of God's sovereign, unconditional and particular grace, in the tradition of Augustine, Wycliffe and the Reformers, such as Luther, Calvin and Knox. In our day of apostasy and compromise, we and our children confess God's truth and worship Him according to His Word through Jesus Christ our Lord. "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised" (Ps. 48:1)!

We hold two worship services on the Lord's Day (which can be watched live), various catechism classes and special lectures, as well as two mid-week Bible Studies on Tuesday and Wednesday from September to May, plus men's and ladies' discussion groups. We also deliver speeches in Limerick, S. Wales and elsewhere. Visitors are always welcome!

In the summer of 2010, the CPRC ordained Rev. Martyn McGeown, our missionary to Limerick working with the Limerick Reformed Fellowship, and we started worshipping in the new church building we erected at 83 Clarence Street in Ballymena.

We are a sister church of the Protestant Reformed Churches in the U.S. and Canada, and of the Covenant Evangelical Reformed Church in Singapore.


(2) About the CPRC Website

The CPRC website presents our Reformed and ecumenical creeds and a brief summary of our beliefs on its Faith page. It provides details and maps of our various meetings in Ballymena (Meetings)—our Sunday services and special lectures are now being broadcast live in video and audio—and our speeches in South Wales and our missionary work in Limerick.  

Our website contains many written resources on biblical, theological and church-historical subjects. The Covenant Reformed News page has about 500 short pieces. (Contact us if you would like to receive the Covenant Reformed News free each month in English by e-mail or post, if in the British Isles; or in Italian or Hungarian by e-mail.) There are about 250 items on the Articles page, ranging from a few paragraphs to many chapters, on such subjects as sovereign grace, God's covenant, the apocrypha and the image of God in man. Over three dozen Quotes cover "free will," lay preaching, the duty of pastors, etc. Almost all of the 130 or so free Pamphlets can also be read on-line.

The Audio section has about 1,800 sermons, speeches, interviews, debates, etc., including a special series on Romans 9, "The Most Avoided Chapter in the Bible." New additions are being made weekly. Usually, the "Notes" on the Audio page contain the Lord's Day CPRC bulletin. Do let us know if you would like to receive our weekly bulletin free by e-mail. (We also have 4 audio-visual debates—on Calvinism, Charismaticism, Psalm-Singing and "The Passion of The Christ"—and over 2,000 sermons and lectures which can be watched on-line on our offsite CPRC YouTube website.)

The Radio section includes the schedule for upcoming Reformed Witness Hour broadcasts on Radio North (846 AM or MW) from near Londonderry.

The CPRC is the main distributor for Reformed Free Publishing Association (RFPA) books in the UK and Europe. Dozens of their titles and some from other publishers (in total about 120) are for sale on our Books page. Over 20 of the books can be read on-line. Sermons on CD and DVD (Audio), as well as attractive box sets of sermon series and conferences on CD and DVD, plus free Pamphlets can also be ordered on-line.

To facilitate study of specific subjects, we have created a special Topical Resources page. From there, one may access various pages which draw together articles, audios, books, Covenant Reformed News, pamphlets, quotes, etc., that deal with a particular topic (e.g., Assurance, Cessationism, Christian Education & Child-Rearing, Covenant & Baptism, Eschatology, God's Effectual Saving Desire, Irresistible Grace, Israel, Lord's Day, Marriage, Psalm-Singing, Reformation, Trinity and Uncommon Grace).

At various places on the CPRC website, there are links to translations of the Reformed and ecumenical creeds, pamphlets, articles, extracts from books, quotes, etc. We have over 2,000 articles and creeds in some 126 foreign tongues (from Afrikaans to Zulu) on our Languages page. The Italian and Portuguese translations have grown so much (about 500 items each) that we now have separate pages for these two languages. We also have specific web pages for our scores of Afrikaans, Burmese, German, Hungarian and Spanish translations. If you are able to assist us by locating on-line any of the ecumenical creeds (Apostles', Nicene, Chalcedonian or Athanasian) or the Three Forms of Unity (Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism or Canons of Dordt) in any language in which we do not already have them, please contact us. Perhaps you are interested in spreading the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ around the world by translating materials from our website. Are there, for example, any of our pamphlets that you would love your fellow countrymen to read in their mother tongue? Do let us know. We post free books to willing and capable volunteers!

We provide Links to various Protestant Reformed websites and churches in Singapore and the Philippines, plus the Limerick Reformed Fellowship and the British Reformed Fellowship (BRF) which contain fine articles and audios.

We greatly appreciate comments and corrections to our website. What did you find helpful? Any constructive criticisms? We would love to hear from you. Please feel free to contact us:
