David Ham in the Telegraph

Pastor David Ham was featured in last Saturday’s Belfast Telegraph – a great article by Leona O’Neill, and excellent coverage before our Alive Belfast event had even started. You can check it out online at the Belfast Telegraph website. 

Alive Belfast Open-Air

What an amazing time we had last Saturday morning in the centre of Belfast inviting people to Alive Belfast. People were touched by the amazing singing from people of all ages at Whitewell. Led by Pastor Stephen Campbell, we sang for an hour while others hand out leaflets. The icing on the cake our guest speaker from Times Square Church in New York, Pastor David Ham who brought a lovely thought, as did our senior pastor, David Purse. When it all ended everyone went for well-earned coffee and buns. 


It was a special day yesterday for the caretaker of our youth centre, John McMurray and his wife Laura as they dedicated their beautiful baby Sadie Charlotte to the Lord. Little Sadie certainly won the heart of Pastor David Purse, who didn't appear to want to hand her back to her proud parents. We wish John, Laura and Sadie every blessing in the future.

First night of Alive Belfast

We had a fantastic time on the opening night of Alive Belfast with Pastor David Ham at our youth centre on Saturday night. The presence of God was amazing and there was great worship too from our well Band, Gemma Gracey and some powerful testimonies too.

Thanks from Pastor David Ham

Pastor David Ham and his wife Tara have sent their appreciation to the leadership at Whitewell and the people for the encouragement they received during their short stay in Belfast. Pastor David is also incredibly indebted to Pastor David Purse and the leadership for the opportunity to preach for five nights at Whitewell. 

Before leaving on Thursday morning to fly back to New York, the experienced evangelist, who has served with Nicky Cruz, commented “It’s been a wonderful time, and both Tara and I hope it won’t be our last time with you in Belfast. It has been an honour and privilege to serve you all, and I will be sharing with our congregation at Times Square Church all the lovely experiences we had and about the great work going on here in Belfast.”

The feeling is mutual regarding Pastor David Ham’s intentions to return to Whitewell. His winning combination of lifting the name of Jesus and sharing the love of God made him one of our most popular guest speakers in recent years with Whitewellers. 

Pastor David displayed genuine humility, but also produced some amazing preaching and a ministry which proved a great blessing to our church.  

U105 Radio Interview

Big thanks to Frank Mitchell at U105 for the radio interview promoting Alive Belfast with Pastor David Ham from Times Square Church New York. You can catch some of it on our Facebook page whitewell church and don’t forget Alive Belfast continues at 7.45pm tonight and Wednesday at the same time. Everyone welcome!

Alive Belfast 2019

Our Alive Belfast event takes place in September when we welcome David Ham, an associate pastor at Times Square Church where he preaches regularly and oversees the Evangelism ministry. Pastor David, who attended Elim Bible Institute and then later graduated from Roberts Wesleyan College with a bachelor’s degree in religion & philosophy, can’t wait to come here and meet the folks at Whitewell. Last year we enjoyed the ministry of Bill Vanderbush, another American preacher, who reached people for Jesus and ministered to the body of Christ, but this year’s speaker will be focused solely on evangelism.
