To see all young people across Ballymena be excited to encounter Jesus and become equipped to live for him.


– our vision, our dream, our prayer – is a brand new, exciting, interchurch, 5 day festival, for all young people Year 8 and up from Ballymena and beyond.

Full of fun, large on laughter, high in energy, surrounded by colour, grounded in community, and focused on opportunities for young people to encounter Jesus, be excited and equipped to follow him through passionate worship, and inspiring, engaging, relevant speakers sharing stories from the Bible; we believe that SMMR FEST will be an incredible week where God transforms the lives of young people forever!

SMMR FEST will launch with a gathering at 8pm on Sunday 13th August in High Kirk Church, and will continue throughout the rest of the week of Monday 14th-Friday 18th August, running each afternoon from 12:30-4pm and each evening from 6:30-9:30pm.


We believe that God wants to use each one of us to carry his light, share his love, facilitate his Kingdom, build his church, and make a difference in our town. Please consider running with us to help achieve the vision of SMMR FEST by doing any or all of these things below:

own it and share it – believe in, be excited by and make this week, and its potential reach and fruit, known in your churches
pray – for SMMR FEST, the team, the week and, ultimately, the young people of our churches and wider town.
give – a one off donation towards the ministry
volunteer – share your time and talents during the week as you invest in lives for all eternity
bring – young people from your church and local community along

that together we will see God do amazing things in the lives of our young people.
