In the year 1905, a new school was built and opened on the
outskirts of the village of Carrowdore. The old school in
the village was vacant and was purchased by a man called Mr.
Dan White. He converted the ground floor of the building into
a Taylor's shop, and the floor upstairs into a Mission Hall
for the preaching of the Gospel.
After Mr. White's death, the work of the preaching of the
Gospel in the Hall continued by different people, until the
building was demolished in 1975 by the Northern Ireland Housing
Executive to make room for new houses.
In that same year, Mr. Sandy Sommerville, bought a large house
at the upper end of the village and made the ground floor
into a Hall to continue the preaching of the Gospel. This
Hall was put under the care of Trustees.
passed away in July 1988, but the work continued. Through
time the building deteriorated and it was decided to build
a new Hall.
No public appeal
was made for money, but God was good and the new Hall was
opened on the 23rd May
1998 to the Glory of God.
The work in spreading the good news of the Gospel continues,
with a Sunday School each Sunday from 3.00-4.00 pm, a Gospel
Meeting each Lord's Day evening at 7.00 pm with different

the winter months from October through May.
