Some information after the last Committee Meeting.
Notice is hereby given that a meeting of the congregation will be held on Sunday, 10th December 2023, immediately after the close of public worship when the appointment of new congregational trustees for church property will be made by members of the congregation duly qualified to vote.
The current holding trustee is the Education Board of the Presbytery of Coleraine And Limavady. Education Boards will soon cease to act as holding trustees for congregational property and a new company “The Presbyterian Church In Ireland Holding Trustee Company” has been formed and by a decision of the congregation we can move our title deeds to the new company.
