About East Belfast Mission
East Belfast Mission has a long track record of social engagement in the area. We may have grown somewhat since the church soup kitchen in the 1800's but our mission is still the same: to transform and renew East Belfast.
We have operated as a Registered Charitable Organisation since 1985 offering a wide range of community services including:
- and at the heart, a worshipping Congregation
We currently employ 70 staff and are supported by over 100 volunteers.
We seek to show the love of God in action.
We are based on the Newtownards Road in Ballymacarret, an area of social and economic deprivation with high levels of unemployment, ill-health and Paramilitary influences. Rated as the 5th most deprived ward of the 566 wards in Northern Ireland, the area has a particularly high incidence of unemployment with many individuals excluded from the labour market through unemployment, disability or ill health.
But this area – like each one of us, regardless of history, has a future and a hope.
