“Our best experience on our trip to the city:)”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We were greeted so well by a lovely gentleman on arrival to the church on Thursday 22nd August 2013, he took the time to tell us alot about the history of the church and took time to enjoy a general chat with us and we also got a lovely solo from one of the male voice choir members who also took the time to talk to us and share some of his experiences of the church. We left feeling so touched at how friendly and welcoming they were. The building was beautiful we definitely recommend a visit:)

“A beautiful building and lovely people!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013

We had visited the Guildhall and a visit to the church was recommended by the staff there. We decided to call in and we were shown around by two lovely people who told us all about the history of the church and the refurbishment and the information about the stained glass windows. It is a beautiful building and well worth a visit, don't walk past!!

“Looking Fantastic”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

We called into this historic building while doing a tour of the walls.
The recent refurbishment has created a building well worth a visit.
We were given a most interesting tour by our excellent Italian (!) guide who gave us a great insight into the building and the fascinating history surrounding it.
Of particular interest were the varied and beautiful stained glass windows and the stories behind them.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

I attended a talk given by Melvyn Bragg in Derry's first Presbyterian Church as part of the 2013 City of Culture celebrations. I was both delighted with the speaker and to visit such a beautiful building. We were all made to feel very welcome and it made the perfect place to hear such an accomplished individual speak. The building has been expertly renovated in recent years and is somewhere I would strongly recommend anyone visit, both locals and visitors. The ceiling was a particular draw for me with a very unusual and eye catching design. It is a very peaceful and an absorbing church, situated beside the walls, with a history which stretches back many, many centuries. I look forward to my next visit.
