Also known as known as ‘The Shipyard Church,’ Westbourne Presbyterian Church on the Newtownards Road in East Belfast was the biggest signing centre for the Ulster Covenant in 1912 after Belfast City Hall.

As a result, the church held a series of four monthly evening lectures on different aspects of the Ulster Covenant, including explorations on Presbyterianism, nationalism, and the role of women.

The church, where many of those who built the Titanic would have worshipped, also marked the centenary of the historic ship with two concerts as part of their Decade of Anniversaries activities.

What worked well and what, if anything, didn't?

Drawing on its role in history, Westbourne Presbyterian is actively engaging with its past and inviting others to imagine and re-create it with them through a site-specific emphasis.
