Gortnessy Meeting House is situated in the middle of rolling countryside between Drumahoe, near Londonderry and Eglinton. It was built in 1841 and for the two previous years, the congregation has worshipped in the local school.
There is only a low step to the Meeting House but the Session House, where the toilets are situated has three steps.
The congregation was originally mainly farming but now has 69 families. Many members work in the city and nearby factories. Public worship takes place each Sunday at 10.30 a.m. Evening services are held only on special occasions. In July and August, it unites with the congregation of Faughanvale in July and in Gortnessy in August, both at 11.00 a.m.
The Sunday School has about 24 pupils and is held in the Meeting House after the service.
The Church Hall, situated about a quarter of a mile from the Meeting House, is the former school and is used by an Indoor Bowling Club and for occasional children's activities.
