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.

New look for Restore Connswater  

The Restore shop at Connswater is the latest shop to receive a make over. Shop Manager Martin and the volunteer team worked hard to revise the stock, moving older stock out and bringing in a fabulous range of good quality second hand items. The pricing of the stock has also been revised so it really is well worth a visit for a bargain!! The retail team are working through all the shops and the next on the list is the Restore in Newtownards. By the end of this month they will also have revised stock levels, quality and pricing so be sure to call in and see it you can get a good deal!
