and their Significance for Presbyterianism’

by Dr Alice Johnston
Belfast Metropolitan College

in Newtownbreda Presbyterian Church
374-378 Ormeau Road, Belfast  BT7 3HX

The Workmans were one of the leading Presbyterian families in Belfast. This talk will explore the cultural, social and religious life of 19th century Belfast as evidenced by this family. Two Workman members in particular, together with their wives and families, will be examined: the industrialist Thomas Workman (1843-1900) and the Presbyterian minister, Rev Robert Workman of Newtownbreda (1835-1921).
