Our Ministries

Ministry is a way to serve your church and community and there are many ways to become involved at Knock Methodist. The most well-known type of ministry is serving as a minister, but there are many other opportunities where you can use your skills and passions to become involved in our church community and strengthen your faith. No matter what age you are or background you are from, there are people meeting together that would love you to come and join them.

Youth and Children's Ministry

We think children and young people are awesome! Our desire is to reach, care for and disciple children and young people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. We create fun and memorable experiences and partner with parents and carers to support spiritual growth and thrive in life. Creche is available throughout the Sunday morning service for our youngest members, primary school children leave the service part way for Sunday School in the Watson Hall and our secondary school young people head to Bible Class in the Youth Lounge. Bible Class allows our young people to delve deeper into the Bible in a creative way in a less formal environment.  Go to our Youth and Children's page for our weekly activities. We regularly join special events like Autumn Soul and Soul Mates.

Women's Ministry

Women's Well is a new initiative within Knock Methodist. Meeting together once a month, this is an opportunity for women of all ages and backgrounds to meet together and explore topics related to women's wellbeing, including mental, physical, and spiritual health. This group is a social event with a cup of tea and coffee and a chat on arrival, followed by the theme for the evening.  This could be a craft, a quiz, a new skill or a chance to learn and interact with each other in different ways. Whatever the topic for the evening the focus will be on fostering a female community space where we can learn, try something new and have a laugh together. A great chance to get to know each other better and make some new friends. Please join us.

Hospitality Ministry

Hospitality ministries are those welcoming ministries that take care of the needs of all church family members and visitors to the church. There is always a wide variety of opportunities for everyone to become more involved within the life of the church, whether that is serving tea and coffee after the service, or helping out at one of our special events and we are always on the look out for willing volunteers!


Other opportunities to get involved include writing articles for the church magazine, delivering outreach leaflets, distributing Christian Aid envelopes, or simply helping with office tasks.  There are many and varied opportunities to become more involved within the church family - just let us know what you're interested in and we'll point you in the right direction!

Teaching Ministry

Teaching ministries are those that preach and teach and are responsible for the faith formation of the congregation. At Knock this includes our Minister, Pastoral Assistant and Sunday School Teachers. There are many opportunities to help within our Youth Ministries (like Sunday School, Impact and our Uniformed Organisations).  We hope to start a new group for younger boys this coming school year and would love a few volunteers to help lead this new direction.

Or come and share in our teaching ministry through Bible Study Groups. We have our own regular series of Bible Studies led by Rev. Fiona,  and several focused studies which we share together with our wider circuit. Check our Events and Circuit pages for more details.

Men's Ministry

Men's Football for 18+  meets in the evening once a month at Civil Service 5-A-Side pitches, Stormont, where we play a friendly but competitive match. Whether you’re an experienced player or a beginner, you are welcome to join us. Contact Andrew McCutcheon for further details on (M) 07942 718054. Next date is Wednesday 31 May at 8pm.

Other ad hoc events include a Men's Breakfast, which is a great way to meet new people and build on existing relationships. This usually takes place on a Sunday before the main Church Service, and we gather together to discuss something topical. It's a great way to get to know people better in an informal but structured setting, while also enjoying a delicious breakfast. Or maybe a game of golf is your thing? Check out the Events page for upcoming dates.

Lemon Tea
Music Ministry

Music ministries are those that use music to worship and preach. Opportunities to take part in our music ministry include the Senior Choir which meets on a Thursday evening, and the newly formed Praise Band which meets on a more ad-hoc basis, but we would also welcome voice and instrumental soloists. We have our organ, digital piano and traditional piano available for weekly services. Each year the choir presents a traditional Candlelight Christmas Eve Carol Service and in the Spring we organise a community concert with guest performers.


If you have a love for music please do become involved. We are always open to new ways to share our faith through worship and praise.

Prayer Ministry

Prayer Ministries are those that plan and conduct prayer meetings or sessions, and help lead the church members to an active life of prayer.  At Knock Methodist we are passionate to bring about a renewed focus on prayer and are introducing new approaches to how we interact with God. On a weekly basis we have Prayers for Others during the Sunday service and would encourage all our members to take part either individually or in groups, Supportive literature can be provided, so just speak to Rev. Fiona if you are interested.

We have a prayer group for specific prayer requests, and at special services we have introduced prayer stations so we can explore new ways to pray. Once a month we have a time for healing prayer after the church service. We want prayer to be the engine room of our church, powering it with the strength of prayer. We invite you to join us on this journey.

Lending a Helping Hand
Volunteer Ministry

Volunteering offers vital help to people in need, worthwhile causes, and the community, and the benefits can be even greater for you, the volunteer. You can find friends, connect with the community, learn new skills, and even advance your career. Giving to others can also help protect your mental and physical health. Volunteering doesn’t have to involve a long-term commitment or take a huge amount of time out of your day - giving in even simple ways can help those in need and improve your health and happiness. There are plenty of opportunities to get involved and make a difference within Knock Methodist - helping with our youth organizations (great for Duke of Edinburgh Award), providing lifts, teaching Sunday school, making music, helping the technology team on a Sunday,  providing food, organizing events, joining a committee, doing a bit of gardening or painting, delivering envelopes and many more, there is something for everyone, whatever your interest.
