Northern Ireland abuse inquiry focuses on Christian children's home
An independent abuse inquiry in Northern Ireland has turned its attention to a former children's home linked to the Church of Ireland.
The Historical Abuse Inquiry (HIA) will be examining allegations of abuse at Manor House in Lisburn, near Belfast.
Manor House was run by the Irish Church Missions group, which particularly focuses on evangelism.
It's been reported that Irish Church Missions also seek to convert Catholics to Protestantism.
On its website, it says it's a recognised mission agency within the Church of Ireland and the worldwide Anglican Communion.
The HIA will look at evidence concerning alleged abuse at Manor House for about a week at Banbridge Court House in Co Down (pictured).
As a whole, it's looking at alleged and confirmed abuse that's happened in 22 Catholic, Protestant or state institutions since 1922.
It's due to submit its report to ministers in a year's time.
