An historical Blue Plaque is to be erected on the Shankill Road in Belfast on Monday morning to a highly regarded Presbyterian minister the Rev Dr Henry Montgomery.

The plaque recognises the Christian witness of a celebrated pastor/preacher, a leading figure in 19th century Irish Presbyterianism.

Dr Montgomery once said: “One Sunday evening during the hour of the regular church services I walked from Royal Avenue to the Shankill, I was struck by large numbers of non-church-going people that I was moved to reach them with the message of life.”
