The Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland

The Association of Baptist Churches in Ireland is an association of more than 100 Baptist Churches the majority of which are in Northern Ireland but with a growing number in the Republic of Ireland.

These churches have well over 8,000 active members and represent a Baptist community of about 20,000 people. The Association holds its Annual Assembly in May.

The Churches' Council meets during that week and in November to receive reports and conduct common business. Routine matters are handled by an Executive Committee elected by the churches at the May Churches' Council meeting.

The College shares premises with the Association offices in our purpose built campus in Moira.
