Built in 1690, Queen Mary funded Derry’s first Presbyterian Church in recognition of the Presbyterians and their defence of the City during the siege in 1689. Today it remains the only Presbyterian Church within the City walls.
The present building was built in 1780 with the Vestibule, of Dungiven sandstone, added in 1820 and the Portico & the four fluted columns with Corinthian capitals, added in 1902.
The new Blue Coat School Visitor Centre, to the rear of the Church, tells the unique story of how Presbyterianism arrived in North West Ulster and develops themes such as the ancient links between North West Ulster and Scotland and Defending Derry’s Walls.
Guided tours by arrangement. Admission free but donations appreciated.
Opening May to Sept. Wed- Fri. 11am -4pm. Sunday Service 11.30am. All welcome.
