Title Bellville Presbyterian Church. "Bellville was founded in 1862 as a result of enthusiasm from the 1859 revival. The church was built at private expense by two members of first Lurgan, the Bell brothers. Only Rev John Hutchinson (1863 - 1901) and Rev James Woodside (1903 - 37) served in Bellville as a single charge. Between 1937 - 47 Samuel McCaughey, a student cycled from Lurgan to conduct services here. Retired ministers served the church during the following twenty years. From 1967 - 98 the minister of Waringstown has cared for Bellville a stated supply. Around ten families are in membership at present" The above is taken from "Presbyterians in Ireland" by Laurence Kirkpatrick 2006 Thanks to Steph! The nearer part is the Church Hall.
