Accessible from both the Broughshane Road and Cushendall Road and one minutes drive from the M2 motorway.  The Centre was built literally a stone's throw from All Saints' Church on the former site of the parish's Boys' School and is a hugely impressive project, both inside and out.

Flanked by a spacious free, car park, the exterior is a mixture of the modern and the traditional, combining such features as arched windows and with a wall section created in the same blackstone finish as the adjacent Church - one of only three of Ballymena's  remaining 'Seven Towers.'

Inside the two-storey 17,700 sq ft premises, the ground floor boasts two meeting rooms (The Tower room, named after All Saints' bell tower, and, the Devenagh Room, in tribute to nearby Devenagh Way) and a community hall with space to seat three hundred people.  The Centre provides internet access, free use of data projector, microphones, flip charts and pens and  photocopying facilities.

The Community Hall

 

The fantastic doors of the Cafe

'The Old School' cafe on the ground floor is named due to its exact positioning within the footprint of the former parish Boys' School.

The former 'Kenbaan' based St Vincent de Paul offices and highly popular Thrift Shop operates on the Cushendall Road side of the building in purpose built premises.

On its first floor, the Parish Centre has seated balcony areas for 'chilling out',three small offices, a hall set aside as a Snooker Club, a medium sized Conference Room and the substantial 'Slemish Conference Room'.  Both Conference Rooms are complete with all the necessary facilities for projector and power point presentations.

The ‘Old School’ Café at All Saints’ Parish Centre reopened at the beginning of Summer 2012 and provides on-site catering in a light and airy setting.

 

All Saints’ Parish Centre offers highly competitive rates and is a modern, fully equipped facility in a central location in Mid Antrim.  It is the perfect setting for all your meetings, workshops, seminars, presentations and training events.
