Corrymeela Community Belfast

Corrymeela Community Belfast

Founded in 1965, Corrymeela’s objective has always been and continues to be promoting reconciliation and peace-building through the healing of social, religious and political divisions in Northern Ireland. Corrymeela’s history is built upon committed work with individuals and communities which have suffered through the violence and polarisation of the Northern Irish conflict.

Our vision of Christian community and reconciliation has been expressed through a commitment of promoting interaction between and building positive relationships among all kinds and conditions of people.

The Corrymeela Community currently has 150 members and over 5,000 friends and supporters throughout the world. Many Corrymeela members are active in a wide variety of peace and reconciliation activity and some have created their own training agencies involved in conflict transformation work.

Services

Each year over 6,000 participants take part in programmes at the Corrymeela Ballycastle Centre which has facilities for over 100 residents in 3 units.

This work can be categorised under 5 strands:

  • Schools work which seeks to address community relations issues often through citizenship
  • Family work providing respite and development work with groups.
  • Faith and Life seeking to support individuals and church communities in their journey of faith and to support encounter with different traditions
  • Youth work primarily focused on marginalised young people.
  • Community work looking at issues of inter-community relations, both on a single identity and a cross community basis
