New railings have been erected by Scott & Stinson Engineering
and the entrance gate has been repainted by Billy Kennedy.
In 2010 the church porch was linked to the Minor Hall (original village school) with an attractive glass and aluminium
entrance area. The work was carried out by JA Gamble Construction, and the etched glass was designed by
Chris Mc Clintock Studios of Coleraine.
The upper panels feature illustrations of the four evangelists from the Book of Kells.
The doors suggest the story of the church since its 6th century monastic beginnings, and
the panels either side depict the Celtic Cross logo of the Church of Ireland.
The Minor Hall was also refurbished and a new kitchen and computer suite with internet access were installed.
An internal ramp leads into the church and with other facilities our buildings now comply with current ‘disability’
regulations. Some grant aid was received, but most of the cost (£105,000) was met by fundraising in the parish.
In 2009 The area which used to house the oil tank outside the parish hall kitchen was enclosed and has become a
valuable kitchen annexe and meeting room. The Oil tank was secured in a separate building and a steel container
was purchased to provide much needed storage space.
