Kinghan Church

Social Witness


Kinghan Church in Botanic Avenue functions as a worshipping community of deaf and hearing impaired persons. In addition, other services are available in the form of individual and family support, interpretation at particular events and assistance to Presbyterian ministers who require specialist help.

The Kinghan Mission was founded in 1857 by John Kinghan, a teacher in the Ulster Society for the Promotion of the Education of the Deaf, the Dumb and the Blind, Belfast.

In 1990, the church moved from Bethel on Sandy Row to a new site on Botanic Avenue. The focal point of the new centre is the ground floor church which has been especially designed to meet the needs of deaf and hard of hearing people. The George Grindle Hall, named after a former Kinghan minister, is a spacious recreation hall on the first floor and is used by various groups both within and outside of the church.

Sunday services begin at 11am and tea and coffee is served from 10.30am. You can access the latest information on Kinghan Church services and events on their website

The United Appeal assists with the funding of the Council for Social Witness, enabling the Council to support the work and Christian witness offered at Kinghan Church.
