At JVC we want to help you find hope and your purpose in life.

The Church is God’s vehicle which brings his answers to this dying world. Jesus said “I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it” We together at JVC want to be part of the Church that Jesus is building for his glory.

“The foodbank was there when we really needed it, it was an absolute lifeline.”

No one should have to face going hungry. That is why we as a Church wanted to host Carrickfergus foodbank. The foodbank will provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are referred to us in crisis. We are part of a nationwide network of food banks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

Beauty By Design – Women’s Conference

Beauty By Design

Our yearly Women’s Conference is hosted by JVC Church and is open to every woman to come and be a part of.

This is a two day event for women to come together to grow and learn more about Jesus and their personal walk. We want to see women of N. Ireland thrive, to be of influence and to be successful in the community the Lord has placed them.

Our Vision

Is to create an environment where women will be inspired to encourage one another with the purpose of impacting their community and Church, bringing godly change into their lives and of those around them. Our aim is for every woman to know they have a heavenly calling to make a difference, to know they are of great value and has been fearfully and wonderfully made by the Lord.
