King’s Way Church is connected with a number of other Christian ministries both local and abroad. The church supports some of these ministries financially, others are supported through the sending out of mission teams and some use the church building supported by church members who are actively involved. This page outlines some of these related ministries.
There are several overseas situations the church supports to various degrees. Overseas involvement is good for both the local church and for those in these overseas situations, reaching out to the unreached and untaught. Our connections include the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Myanmar, Malawi, South Africa and USA. Our involvement includes short term mission involvement as well as financial and prayer support . For further information contact firstname.lastname@example.org

So what exactly is this?
resound is an attempt at a fresh expression of church based in Dunmurry, Northern Ireland. We hope to be a church that is not just relevant to, but shaped and changed by the people who are not yet a part of us.
What makes it different?
Northern Ireland is full of churches, but more and more people are finding it difficult to relate to church as we know it. We are going back to first principles, and losing the baggage that has been built up over two thousand years. We have no church building, no entrance exams, and no noses that we will look down at you through. The only thing you need to belong is a desire to belong. We will welcome you with open arms.
The word resound means "to celebrate or praise". As our lives are meant to be lived out as praise to God, we thought that it pretty much sums us up. Plus we voted on a few and it won.
Bodybuilders is a holiday Bible club for children from P1 – Year 12. The club runs for two weeks at various locations throughout Dunmurry area including our own church building.facebook twitter
Churches together is a group of churches and fellowships in and around southwest Belfast brought together by a growing sense of unity in both evangelism and prayer. This has developed from the monthly Saturday morning prayer breakfasts and other forms of cooperation over recent years. Having been encouraged by the joint worship services we have held, and the feedback from them, we decided to plan various regular events. We hope that all church members will participate in one way or another. Our hope is that we will remain mutually encouraged, supported and strengthened in the Lord’s work locally, to God’s glory (Ephesians 3: 14 – 21).
