Hall History

In the year 1905, a new school was built and opened on the outskirts of the village of Carrowdore. The old school in the village was vacant and was purchased by a man called Mr. Dan White. He converted the ground floor of the building into a Taylor's shop, and the floor upstairs into a Mission Hall for the preaching of the Gospel.

After Mr. White's death, the work of the preaching of the Gospel in the Hall continued by different people, until the building was demolished in 1975 by the Northern Ireland Housing Executive to make room for new houses.

In that same year, Mr. Sandy Sommerville, bought a large house at the upper end of the village and made the ground floor into a Hall to continue the preaching of the Gospel. This Hall was put under the care of Trustees.

Mr Sommerville passed away in July 1988, but the work continued. Through time the building deteriorated and it was decided to build a new Hall.

No public appeal was made for money, but God was good and the new Hall was opened on the 23rd May 1998 to the Glory of God.

The work in spreading the good news of the Gospel continues, with a Sunday School each Sunday from 3.00-4.00 pm, a Gospel Meeting each Lord's Day evening at 7.00 pm with different speakers each week. Each Thursday evening from 7.30-9.00 a Bible Study & time of prayer. A Saturday Evening Rally is held in the winter months from October through May.

We give
GOD all the glory and praise for His faithfulness.

We all come from different Churches, Halls and Assemblies. Each of us attend our own respective place of worship each Lord's Day morning, and come together at the appointed meeting times. Our speakers also come from different denominations. As long as the speakers are Evangelical Christians and preach the true message of the Gospel of Christ, then they are welcome to preach at Maranatha Hall.

We have many speakers who come to preach, and the current list can be viewed at our speaker page.

We would be delighted if you can join us for worship at any of our meetings. You will be made most welcome!
