Appreciating the Ecclesiastical Heritage of Limavady


Thursday 28 September 2017

The Ulster Historic Churches Trust exists to promote best practice in Church maintenance and has run several seminars and conferences over many years. To date it has organised walking tours in Cookstown, Newtownards, Portadown, Derry/Londonderry, Armagh, Enniskillen and Knock, Belfast. In 2012 a major publication ‘New Life for Churches in Ireland-Good Practice in Conversion and Reuse’ was launched.

This latest event run in collaboration with Limavady Churches involves both a tour of local churches, designed to appreciate the rich legacy of Limavady's ecclesiastical heritage, followed by an informative talk aimed at how best to maintain these buildings for future generations. We hope that Glebe Wardens, Vergers, Sextons and Property Stewards will find this particularly helpful. Limavady is a handsome town with a number of fine places of worship. For this event we will visit four churches and pause outside two as time will not permit us to call at more.

You are warmly invited to join us for this event.

The walking tour includes the following churches: St Mary's Catholic Church, Limavady Methodist Church, Drumachose CoI Church and Drumachose Presbyterian Church. There will also be a stop outside 2nd Limavady and 1st Limavady Presbyterian churches.
