Presentation of Architectural Record to Eglantine Parish

Tuesday January 12th 2010

Canon William Bell receives the Architectural Record from Mrs Anne Stevenson of the NADFAS.At a recent service of Morning Prayer in All Saints’ Parish Church, Eglantine, a presentation was made to the Rector, Canon William Bell, of a Church Record compiled by the National Association of Decorative and Fine Art Societies (NADFAS).

The dedicated members of the Ulster Group met monthly over two years gathering and collating information.  The extremely detailed and well illustrated record contains an inventory of everything of interest within the building.

Copies of the elegantly bound file will be given to the Public Records Office, Northern Ireland; the Ulster Architectural Heritage Society; the Irish Architectural Archive, Dublin, Trinity College Library, Dublin, the Church of Ireland Library, Dublin; as well as the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Situated in an idyllic setting on the outskirts of Lisburn, All Saints’ Church is the second church to benefit from this careful work undertaken by the NADFAS volunteers.
