Dundonald Presbyterian Church open again after £1.8m rebuild

By Staff Reporter

One of Ireland's oldest Presbyterian congregations has opened its doors to worshippers once again in east Belfast.

Presbyterian Moderator Dr Frank Sellar has officially reopened Dundonald Presbyterian Church after a £1.85m refurbishment.

The premises, located at the heart of Dundonald village, was built in the mid-19th century.

The Presbyterian congregation itself is one of the oldest on the island, having had its first minister installed in 1645.

Today, around 350 families attend the church.

The minister, Rev William McCully, said: "Our new complex is absolutely incredible. I just love it. It's a fine, modern, pleasant and bright space to be in, that offers a welcoming experience to everyone who enters, and I am so glad that the Moderator can be with us today."

The project took some 14 months to complete, and features a fully equipped 300-seat worship centre.
