In May 2021 the Heritage Council of Ireland awarded the Methodist Historical Society of Ireland a grant of €15,000. This is being used to fund the second phase of a major project to digitise over 150 years of Irish Methodist periodicals from 1859 to 2015. This process not only preserves the original documents for the future but means they can be viewed and searched online. The originals are held at the MHSI Archives in Belfast. The scanning and hosting of the pages is by the specialist Dublin company, Informa. The first phase of the project of scanning the Christian Advocate from 1883-1923 is already complete and available for viewing through these webpages.
