About Us

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!
