The plaque over the entrance declares: "The Memorial Church erected A, D. 1879 for Rev. H. Cooke, D. D. LL.D. in recognition of his eminent and successful labors for the ta[___?] against the prevailing errors of the times.

As the plaque above the lintel proclaims, the church was built specifically for Dr. Henry Cooke, leader of the Evangelical wing of the Belfast's Presbyterians. The architect of the memorial doorway, constructed in 1872, was John Boyd.
