On Wednesday 15 April at 2.00pm the Presbyterian Historical Society of Ireland is to visit the 174 Trust. We will have a tour of the former church building and the new facilities and a talk. This will be followed by a cup of tea. We hope you will take the opportunity to find out about the work of the Trust.
The 174 Trust is located at Duncairn Avenue in what was once Duncairn Presbyterian Church that has now been converted into Duncairn Centre for Culture & Arts. The Centre is North Belfast’s first purpose built Arts and Culture shared space venue. Costing £3.5 million it consists of art studios, an exhibition area, a community meeting room and a 170 seater theatre/performance area, a café and conference rooms.
The 174 Trust was founded in 1982 by a group of concerned Christians including members of two local churches – Duncairn Presbyterian and Antrim Road Baptist. It offers opportunities and assistance to people of all ages and supports community development based on building relationships with local people, working together to identify and meet local needs.
