BCM's 4th Annual Conference

BCM's 4th Annual Conference

Staff, volunteers and congregation came together recently to share and mark their achievements during the past year at the 4th BCM Annual Conference.  The theme of this year’s conference ‘From Small Acorns Mighty Oak Trees Grow’ recognises the long way BCM has come in the past 125 years.  The Lord Mayor of Belfast, Councillor Nichola Mallon opened the day by paying tribute to the dedication and commitment of BCM's staff and volunteers, before guests took part in workshops which reflected the theme of growth, development and training.

Rev Johnston, BCM Superintendent said, “BCM’s staff, volunteers and congregation work so hard throughout the whole year, it’s great to get an opportunity to gather together to celebrate all we’ve achieved and thank them for their hard work and dedication in making BCM such a successful organisation.”

“We were delighted to welcome Lord Mayor Councillor Nichola Mallon to open BCM’s special anniversary conference.  As a charity, BCM has been supporting people across Northern Ireland for 125 years and will continue to do so, particularly those most vulnerable in society. 

“BCM’s history mirrors the massive changes in Belfast society since 1889; since our original outreach work amongst the urban poor in the city slums, we have grown into a large organisation providing a variety of professional social care not just in Belfast but across Northern Ireland.  We want to continue to help people in need and have plans in place to further develop our services for older people, including building Copelands, Dementia and Nursing Care in County Down, which will provide market leading care for those living with dementia."
