Corrymeela Community

From its first days, Corrymeela has been a place of gathering, work, faith, and discussion; bringing people of different backgrounds, different political and religious beliefs, and different identities together. We believe that there is strength in gathering and that, when we can be with each other in commitment, no difference is great enough to break us. In the early days of Corrymeela, hundreds of volunteers gave up their holidays, weekends, and summer breaks to host events, seminars, camps, and conferences, as well as to literally build the Ballycastle site. In time, staff members were employed who ran the site at Corrymeela and ran programmes in the wider community.
