Christian Heritage Tour of BelfasT

The Mother churches and the other churches

Belfast has a fascinating collection of places of public worship, some of which date back two centuries or more.  All of them reflect the beliefs and motivations of those who built them.  The churches are reflective of the city’s origin, growth and development and are inter-linked with our social and political history. The cultural mix in Belfast is a result of Scottish migration and an influx of people from rural Ireland in the 19th century with a predominant blend of Anglican, Presbyterian and Roman Catholic churches. Other migrations and doctrinal differences have enriched the mix of Christian denominations and this too is reflected in the build heritage of our city
