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 (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.
