I was amazed by the number of ‘places of worship’ in Belfast.

The Moravian Church is a Protestant denomination. This church's nickname comes from the original exiles who came to Saxony in 1722 from Moravia to escape persecution, but its religious heritage began in 1457 in Kunvald, Bohemia, today part of the Czech Republic, an autonomous kingdom within the Holy Roman Empire. The Moravian Church places a high premium on Christian unity, personal piety, missions, and music.

The church's emblem is the Lamb of God with the flag of victory, surrounded by the Latin inscription: Vicit agnus noster, eum sequamur, or in English: "Our Lamb has conquered, let us follow Him".

The Irish District of the Moravian Church is part of the Moravian Unity Province known as Great Britain the Ireland. There are approximately 320 members of the Moravian Church on the island of Ireland and they attend one of four congregations in Co Antrim and one in Co Down. In addition there is a fellowship in Dublin that meets twice a year. Representatives of the five congregations meet twice a year for an Irish District Conference, where various matters are discussed.
