We at the Belfast Civic Trust would endorse Gail Walker's piece on the historic, cultural and architectural importance of the large number of Belfast churches (Comment, July 18).
There is a tremendous variety of styles of churches in the city and they could be marketed more as a tourism asset. Sadly, some are under threat - for example, St Joseph's in Sailortown.
Your readers may be interested to know that the Belfast Civic Trust is running a churches tour as part of European Open Heritage Day on Friday, September 8.
Belfast Welcome Centre also has copies of the trust's Belfast Christian heritage tour, which is self-guided and is very popular with cruise ship visitors.
