About Us

Ballinamallard and Trillick Methodist Churches are one circuit, situated in two villages and make up part of the North Western District.  As a church we exist to glorify God and to encourage people to be followers of Christ, to seek and worship God, both in word and action and to serve our communities.  We seek to break down barriers and to promote unity among all people, believing fervently in the power of prayer.

John Beacom, Minister

I have been the Superintendent Minister of the circuit since 2014.  I am married to Elaine and have 4 grown up children.

My hobbies include football, reading and playing the bagpipes but my greatest pleasure is spending time with family, especially my grandchildren.

I believe in the power of the gospel and seek to see all coming to a living and vibrant faith in Christ.  I have a strong, pastoral heart and my motto for ministry is “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care”.

I joined the team in August 2019, after returning from Australia where I worked with the Anglican Church of Australia. I have a heart to see young people encounter God as I journey alongside them in their faith and life.

My primary role as Youth and Children's Worker is to support the spiritual growth and discipleship of the children and young people in churches in two villages - Magheracross Church of Ireland and Ballinamallard and Trillick Methodist Churches.  I facilitate and run youth groups such as YF, Junior Drop In and Walk With Me.  

My work also involves supporting the local schools and I present assemblies in primary and secondary schools in Ballinamallard, Kilskeery and Enniskillen.

After leaving school, I felt God call me to serve Him with  children and young people both in school and church. I began my teaching career in Belfast and then moved to Enniskillen. Following retirement I studied to become a Local Preacher and am at present Circuit Steward. 

Married to John, we have two sons, a daughter and three grandchildren.  I enjoy childminding, walking and watching sport on television, tennis being my favourite.

I came with my husband Gordon to Ballinamallard in 2005, when we joined the Church. As each of our children came along my involvement within the Church grew with the progression from Crèche duties, Sunday School Teacher to Designated Person.

We have four children, three girls and one boy, all of whom are at various levels of school.  As an animal lover I am very fortunate to be able to spend my working hours with my favourite four legged friends, as I am a Dog Groomer.
