“A very warm and friendly welcome”

Reviewed July 14, 2013

A must visit place. On the walls of Derry, close to the cathedral and Apprentice Boys Memorial Hall. Visitors are made to feel very welcome. A really historical place and very important part of the cities history. With information given by volunteers who belong to the church or are friends of the church.

Great little church with terrific tiles, interesting stained glass windows and a proper church organ. Friendly parishioners directed us next door to the church hall where we took part in the Big Weave. Each weaving threads into the tapestries they were making. It was a terrific experience. Tea and cakes too!

I attended an event here which was part of the 2013 City of Culture celebrations and was overwhelmed with how lovely this place was, both in the welcome we received from the staff and the overall atmosphere. The small grounds around the church are lovely and its situation on the walls is perfect. I was attending an evening of poetry, music and story telling. The building had been lit with candles and the sun was just starting to go down as the event kicked off. The stain glass windows were beautiful, and the whole atmosphere that night was very special indeed. I had never been inside the church before and am delighted I stepped in and discovered a really special place. I look forward to visiting it again soon.

The church is ancient, small and very lovely with a superbly kept graveyard full of well-tended plants. I also enjoyed the concert and meeting members of the congregation who were so welcoming to visitors. There was a lovely atmosphere and nothing to dislike. This church is not to be missed by any visitor to Derry !

I have been inside the church and it is absolutely gorgeous, and worth the trip, although it is not open often. It's rarely seen open, having lived in Derry my whole life and passed it many times, I have only been in and saw it opened once.
