St. John’s Church of Ireland, Laganbank, Belfast.

Page still under construction.

This church no longer exists.

This handsome little church on the Laganbank, is certainly doing its full share in the present crisis. Fifty members of the congregation are serving with the colours. The church members have given generously to collections raised on behalf of the Prince of Wales’s National Relief Fund and for the British Red Cross Society. They organised “a gift day” for comforts for the soldiers and sailors, and many of the congregation are assisting in ambulance and hospital work. A handsome “Rule of Honour” has been presented to the church by the secretary of the vestry (Mr. F.W. Moneypenny). It contains the names of all the members on active service. They are as follows: –
