Newtownbreda Baptist Church, Belfast was founded sixty years ago with the current modern place of worship dating from the late 1970’s.
The Church of the Pentecost is a symmetrical double height red brick parish church in the modernist style dominated by a vertical glazed gable with spire and adjoining hall, built c1963 to designs by Dennis O'Donoghue Hanna.
Although the design is fairly typical of a mid 20th century suburban church, of particular interest is the unusual and impressive roof structure and glulam supporting frames.
The interior of the church was reordered in 2013 in order to make it a more versatile and accessible space that can better meet the needs of the local community. During this time the hall was also extended and a new wheelchair accessible entrance was added which is used for access to both the church and hall. The premises are is use almost every day of the week and it is part of the ethos of the church to serve its local community in whatever way possible.
