St. George's Church

The Moravian Church

Young and MacKenzie

1887 century

University and Lisburn Roads, Belfast

This small Moravian church stands at the junction of University Road and the Lisburn Road, facing a park where, King William is said to have hitched his horse in 1690 on his way to the Battle of the Boyne. The church designed by Young and MacKenzie was built of Scrabo stone in 1887 and blends comfortably with the nearby Crescent Arts Centre and Crescent Church. Its pinnacled tower, together with those of the neighbouring Methodist and Crescent Churches, form a cluster of spires which add drama to the skyline. —"Belfast's Christian Heritage" (see below)
