After 500 metres from the village of Kinallen, heading on the Banbridge Road towards Dromara, Church Road is about 500 metres on the right hand side. Drive up the short steep hill where you will see the church entrance on your left.
There has been a meeting house on the site since 1713. The first minister, the Rev John Campbell, was ordained in December 1715. There is no information as to where the early ministers lived. The first manse that can be traced with certainty is Marybrook Farm, which the Rev James Jackson Birch purchased in November 1795 for 300.

The present Meeting House was built in 1826 at a total cost of 2,035. The 1858 manse at Tullyniskey, now a listed building, was sold in July 1989 and a new manse was opened in December 1990. In 1994 the Meeting House was renovated, carpeted and new heating and electrical fittings installed. A new hall and adjoining suite of rooms were opened in July 2000 and a new car park added in 2003.
