The congregation of Kells Presbyterian Church held its first services on 24 March 1874, with the present meeting house being built in 1876. The congregation was established as a direct result of the 1859 revival in Mid-Antrim. So many people were converted that the existing congregation in Connor could not cope with the numbers.
The present congregation has approximately 300 families drawn from the local community. Recent housing development has seen an increase in new members from outside the district. This has been a positive experience and we continue to welcome all who are willing to be part of our church family.
Organisations range from the crëche for babies and young children through to the Luncheon Club for senior citizens. In between we have Sunday Zone, C.E., Campaigners, Kells Tots, Kids Zone, Bible Class, Youth Fellowship, Adult Bible Class, P.W, Praise Group and Choir.
For a number of years we have been twinned with a congregation of the Hungarian Reformed Church in Budapest and this has proved to be a profitable link.
We meet for worship at 12 noon every Sunday and 6.30 pm every other Sunday. Our services have an emphasis on Biblical Exposition with our services being preceded by prayer. Our midweek Bible Study meets on Wednesdays at 8.00 p.m. and is followed by a time of prayer. We believe that prayer is a vital part of the life of the Church and our prayer committee organises various events throughout the year when we focus on specific prayer requests.
