Each presbytery to appoint ministers to certify meeting houses.

7. Each presbytery of Presbyterians in Ireland may from time to time, subject
to the approbation of the lord lieutenant, appoint one or more ministers, who
shall certify to the registrar herein-after mentioned that the meeting house
to be described in every such certificate is within such presbytery, and is
used as a place of public religious worship by Presbyterians in connexion with
such presbytery; and such minister shall deliver to the registrar such
certificate, signed in duplicate by him; and the registrar shall send both
certificates to the registrar general, who shall cause such meeting house to
be registered accordingly in a book to be kept for that purpose at the general
register office herein-after mentioned; and the registrar general shall cause
to be endorsed on both certificates the date of the registry, and shall keep
one certificate with the other records of the general register office, and
shall return the other certificate to the registrar, who shall keep the same
with the other records of his office; and the registrar shall enter the date
of the registry of such meeting house in a book to be furnished to him for
that purpose by the registrar general, and shall give a certificate of such
registry, under his hand, on parchment or vellum, to the minister by whom the
certificates shall have been signed, and shall give public notice of the
registry thereof, by advertisement in some newspaper circulating within the
county, and in the [Belfast Gazette]; and for every such entry, certificate,
and publication the registrar shall receive at the time of delivery to him of
the certificates [the prescribed fee]; and every such minister shall continue
to exercise the powers given to him by this Act during the pleasure of the
lord lieutenant.
