The Planning application for BCM's flagship project, Copelands, Dementia and Nursing Care, has now been recommended for approval by DoE Planning and was endorsed by Ards Borough Council at their meeting on 13th January.

Christmas 2014 was a great year as we were able to help a lot of individuals and families who were in need.  

Thanks to the generosity of churches, schools, local businesses and individuals we have had another successful Christmas at Belfast Central Mission.  This year, we gave 3, 250 children and teenagers a toy parcel or gift and approximately 1, 860 families and senior citizens a food parcel.  All of the individuals and families were extremely grateful for the help they received.  

Here we are and another New Year begins.  As it does, I can’t help reflecting back over all the hopes, dreams… and disappointments of New-Years gone by.  We often talk of New Year’s resolutions and the hopes that as another new year dawns, we will somehow, somewhere find the strength, the focus the increased will-power needed to achieve things that have been niggling away at us, often for significant periods of time.
