Regrettably, the installation of Rev Michael Currie did not take place as planned. Michael was installed by the Presbytery Commission, with only a limited number of people present. Click to listen to Installation Service Due to the coronavirus outbreak, Church activities including Church Services have been cancelled-not a lightly taken decision, but we must protect people around us. We will keep you updated on future developments and look forward to meeting again as a church family soon. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7 Important information

We have had several enquiries from members of the congregation on how they can continue to contribute while not meeting on a Sunday. If you are interested, this can be done by setting up a standing order. For information about how to do this please contact our Church Treasurer: Bob Agnew.

Thank you for visiting our site. Some of you may not have been to Cookstown before, so let me welcome you to our town and particularly to our congregation. Details of the denominational family, throughout Ireland, to which we belong can be found at www.presbyterianireland.org (link above). Loy Hill, in the centre of Cookstown, has been the site of our place of corporate worship for many years, as you will see in our history. People come and go here all week to attend various church organisations and on a Sunday to our services of worship. We must never think, however, that church is about "going to church" or even "coming from church" but rather that people are the church. When Jesus Christ formed a group around him, we are told that he "called" them. So the Greek word for church (ekklesia) reminds us the church is a "called people". Our church is not just buildings on Loy Hill, but the church is (in the words of a hymn by Carol Ikeler), wherever God's people are praising, are walking in His way, helping,caring for neighbours in sickness and need, and sharing the words of the Bible in gift and in deed! That is who we are by the grace of God. Our forefathers could never have dreamt that one day we would be sharing with you in such a way as through this web site. Let us know that you have visited us and we look forward to welcoming you in real space soon to Cookstown.
