Some of us visited the Anchorage Project in Ringsend recently.

The Anchorage Project is a Hope-Themed Christian Project that operates from the Old Mission Hall in Ringsend. A community Playschool as well as a community Café (known as The Fair Play Café) and Garden all operate as part of the Anchorage Project.

In a world where there often seems to be a tangible erosion of Hope, the project is passionately committed to developing Hope-Shaped initiatives locally and globally with four components of Beauty, Children, Community and Justice.

You can read more about the Project on their web site here.

There is an interesting RTE Nationwide clip about the Cafe and the Project on YouTube here

The background to the Project is described in an Article about the Ringsend Mission Hall opened in 1896.

We can recomment the Café from personal experience and the Project is community-based with a world view.
