East Belfast Mission 

 
Renewal and Transformation of the East Belfast Community 
 
At East Belfast Mission we work with everyone in our community to improve their spiritual and physical well being. The pages on our web site reflect the many areas of life in East Belfast in which we work with the local community. As a "not for profit" organisation we run many fund raising activities to support our community work. This work includes helping the Homeless in our Hosford project, our child care facility in Bright Sparks, our Skill and Social Enterprise Hub which helps people back to work and sometimes fitness and of course our thriving Church and Community which delivers pastoral care. 
 
We are based in the Skainos Centre on the Newtownards Road. The Skainos Project is an urban regeneration project in inner East Belfast providing shared space for community transformation and renewal. Central to the development is a new street in inner East Belfast, untouched by the history of the Troubles, with the capacity to be genuinely shared space. This civic square is capable of hosting open air events like concerts, farmers' markets and Christmas fairs and is overlooked by new, mixed tenure housing, thereby giving the square a living presence round the clock. 
 
We have won many awards across several projects. Click here to see what we have achieved. 
The Newtownards Road frontage of the development features new retail and commercial office space. Inside, and fronting to the square is the work of East Belfast Mission including youth and family services and counselling as well as a community hall and auditorium, and a cafe which spills onto the square.

Alice Milligan – A Girl of Genius  

This unique one woman show charts the extraordinary life of a remarkable pioneer. 
Alice Milligan – journalist, political activist, feminist, human rights campaigner, ‘Cultural Ambassador’ and theatre pioneer, was an icon of Ireland’s great renaissance of the late 19th Century. With a coterie of friends that included WB Yeats, Tomas MacDonagh, Arthur Griffith, Maud Gonne, Roger Casement and James Connolly, her immense contribution achieved an extraordinary global reach. Her newspaper articles were widely read in South Africa, America, Europe and South America, and she was hugely successful in connecting with the Irish Diaspora in the States. 
She was considered the most successful producer of theatre in Ireland and was one of the first to employ Irish actors. Born in 1866, one of 13 children into a middle class Protestant Unionist family in Co Tyrone, she attended Methodist College, Belfast and then studied history and literature at King’s College London. She was hailed as the ‘infant nurse’ of the biggest Irish political movement in the 1920s, and was a tireless human rights campaigner as well as an organiser of the Irish language movement in Ulster.
