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 the 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.
