Newtownards Methodist Church (1923)

After the St. Enoch's mission William then moved to East Belfast and conducted two other missions. The first of these was in Newtownards Road Methodist Church. It commenced in January 1923 with twenty of the neighbouring churches cooperating. The Rev. John Redmond, vicar of St. Patrick's Church, Ballymacarrett, reported, "The services gave rise to a great spiritual movement in East Belfast. Men marched in hundreds from the shipyard to the services. On one occasion so great was the pressure of men to get through the church gate that the top of one of the pillars was pushed off. In all, about four hundred of our parishioners professed conversion."

From 'All for Jesus' by Stanley Barnes, published by Ambassador Productions, p76.

I believe that this was the building the meetings were held in.
