A late 19th Century deconsecrated church. The grade B listed, two-storey church is designed in Italian Romanesque style, with early French gothic detail by Belfast architect Timothy Hevey. Work was completed by Co. Down architect Mortimer Thompson when Hevey died before building work commenced in 1878.
St Joseph’s Church features a tall central tower and spire above a recessed porch entrance with carved columns and flanked by side aisles with flying buttresses.
Sailortown Cultural and Historical Society (SCHS) was established in 1999 to protect, record and promote the unique history and culture of the dockland community and are currently raising funds to save the church.
