The Christians who meet in Kirkby Gospel Hall have been a testimony in Kirkby since 1928 (in the current building) and whilst relatively small in number have been endeavoring to uphold the principles of God's word in the town for almost 100 years.
On this page you'll find out a bit more information about who we are and where to find us. We've also provided a few helpful links to some online ministry, including the understandingthegospel.org webpage as well as links to Christian organizations supporting Christians and Christian values across the UK.
Through the rest of the site you'll be able to find details of some of our beliefs and what meetings we have on, and at what times.
You can of course contact us through any of our meetings, speak to us if you see us out and about, or alternatively contact us using the phone, email or contact form at the bottom of every page.

Kirkby "Gospel" Hall - Understanding "The Gospel"
"The Gospel" or godspel (from Old English, Greek and Latin) simply means good news and reflects our desire to spread the good news of God's salvation through faith in His Son Jesus Christ.
We often say in our preaching that the gospel is more than simply "religion" or a crutch for the feeble minded but is the representations of a Holy God inviting a tangible relationship between us and Him.
The beauty of the Christian faith is not to be found in our worth but is fully centred on the claims and worth of a historically verifiable individual, revealed to be the Son of God who came to provide the world with peace, satisfaction, joy, love, meaning and purpose.

We also like to keep a close eye on the way the Christian faith is observed and regarded in the society in which we're living and to pray for fellow-believers in difficulties domestically and abroad.
For some good points for prayer and to become acquainted with the wider Christian community why not try the Christian Institute or Christian Concern.
