Belfast Central Mission was originally founded in order to reach out to those who had little contact with Christian faith in any form. At times unorthodox methods were used, including meeting in a circus tent and Saturday evening films in the old Grosvenor Hall, to commend Christian faith. But from the beginning worshipping God and caring for people went together.
Today the Grosvenor Hall is one of a range of congregations on the South and Central Belfast Methodist Circuit where people meet for worship on a Sunday

The Grosvenor Hall congregation gathers before the Service for a cuppa at 10:30 am.
Many of the members of the congregations are also BCM volunteers.
During the week the Gallagher Chapel is also open for prayer in Grosvenor House.
The Grosvenor Hall Mission Statement is:
"A welcoming congregation, celebrating God's love in worship, prayer and action, being open to the prompting of the Holy Spirit to love, serve and offer God's healing to all, irrespective of need or creed."
Midweek activities across the circuit include children’s organisations, women’s groups, Bible studies, prayer meetings, community meals and others.
