COOK Shire Council mayor Peter Scott cut the ribbon to officially open Brennan Hall on Sunday, a fitting tribute to long-time pastor, the late Wayne Brennan.

The former industrial shed has been lovingly converted to be the new permanent home for the Cooktown Community Church congregation.

The building includes an air-conditioned auditorium with seating for about 70 people as well as spaces for storage, prayer, Sunday school and a small kitchen and bathrooms.

“Church is all about helping people change, and we can only hope as a church that we can be as beneficial as some of the other awesome community groups like the Lions,” said Cooktown Community Church pastor Rick Ashcroft.
