CRESCENT CHURCH BELFAST - UNIVERSITY ROAD

LOADING
What is now known as the Crescent Church was built in 1887 as a Presbyterian church. It was designed by architect John Bennie Wilson. The building is now used by an independent, undenominational Christian congregation. Among the features of the building is prominent entrance door arching at its University Road entrance; I noticed behind the glass door an enormous, open Bible placed on a lectern so as to be readable from the street. Its 42.7 metre tower has conspicuous, vertical windows without glass, which give the tower its 'see through' appearance. The building's style is described as French Gothic.
