St Ethelburga's was orginally built in the 15th century. It was almost completely destroyed by an IRA bomb in 1993. It was rebuilt and opened as a centre for reconciliation and peace in 2002.
St Ethelburga's exists to transform conflict and division into new relationships and peaceful communities.
We do this in several different ways:
1. by creating a unique space for dialogue and encounter;
2. by nurturing the leadership of young adults
3. by offering training (including dialogue faciliation, conflict resilience, community reconciliation, conflict coaching and narrative based tools for community building);
4. by offering direct support to communities experiencing conflict
5. by bringing people together through music and the arts.
Our work is a mix of public events, sustained projects, training programmes, and responding to direct requests for support. Come and get involved!
