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. 
 
 

UPCOMING EVENTS 

 
Turas Events Coming Soon 

The Hounds of Ulster originated within the loyalist band tradition and then began to experiment with other forms of traditional music. They then went on to team up with an Irish dancing troupe. This unlikely pairing have entertained audiences throughout Ulster with their fusion of cultures and music. Please come along to Skainos on Friday 3rd March @ 7.30pm to show your support for real inclusion and moving forward. All welcome! 

New dance classes with Turas 

 
Mother's Day Breakfast 

Church & Community Outreach are organising a Mother's Day breakfast again this year. Last year we encouraged the male folk to serve the ladies and then in June, it is the turn of the ladies to serve the men at the Father's Day breakfast. Why not come along for a treat and a catch up with all the ladies? Contact Kim Cooper or Valarie Keenan for more information or to purchase your ticket.
