Glendermott Presbyterian Church
Glendermott Presbyterian Church is situated on the outskirts of Londonderry approximately two minutes from Altnagelvin Hospital. The congregation was established in 1654 and thus have enjoyed over 350 years of God’s goodness and provision. The original church was located further up the valley than at present, however, the congregation has been able in 1996 to celebrate 300 years at the current site.

The congregation comprises approximately 480 families and meet for worship on Sunday mornings at 11.30am. On the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month there is an evening service at 6.30pm. Mid week bible study takes place on Wednesdays at 7.00pm.

History

The congregation of Glendermott was established in 1654 and has enjoyed a long history. A meeting house was built somewhere between the present building and the old graveyard further up the valley

After 30 years it became necessary to erect a larger building and in 1696 a new church was built on the present site. Mr Ryan Donaghey has complied a detailed history of the congregation spanning the 350 year history. This research was published in a book titled “The bush still burns”.
