BUILDING HOME IN THE HEART OF THE CITY
FAR MORE THAN A VENUE
FOUNDATIONS THAT EXTEND FAR BEYOND OURSELVES
We have an exciting opportunity as a church!
Please partner with us!
For many years we have intentionally maintained a permanent, central meeting location within the Canberra city. Over the years our meeting places have changed but have remained within the city limits, continuing our commitment to plant within the city to reach those living in this immediate area.
As you may be aware we have recently had the opportunity to purchase our own property in the heart of Civic.
This venue (yet to be named), is a place where people can find family and do life together. We will use this venue to service our wider church and local gathering (CityPM) as well as it being a space where we can welcome in the community so we can connect and engage with locals.
The purchased venue is incredibly located within the city, minutes walk from The Canberra Centre. Centrally positioned on Akuna Street within the Nesuto Hotel building we are excited about a space that is close to residential apartments, restaurants and shops. This presents many opportunities for community engagement and easy access to the venue.
The space includes three large spaces, a foyer, kitchen, toilets and office space as well as access to a shared pool, rooftop terrace, tennis courts and sitting area. The total venue space is around 400m2 located on the first floor (double the size of the Loft), with both elevators and ramp access.
Please see a quick tour of the venue in this link
Internal uses include:
Local City PM weekly gathering
Men’s and women’s summits
Church small groups
Church social events
External uses include:
Community and business hire including seminars, conferences, business meetings, birthday parties, receptions and special events
Flexible office and meeting space
Social events for those living in the building and surrounding area
Potential uses to develop include:
Recording studio hire
Kids programs/holiday program for people who live in the city
Commercial kitchen for catering
Food storage for those in need
We would envisage that from these initiatives and uses more opportunities to both serve our own church family as well as engage the wider community would become apparent.
How can you partner with us?
Our goal is to raise 50K AUD.
Together as a church, the purchase of this building continues our commitment to plant within the Canberra City and position ourselves to reach those who live in this area. Gratefully, we have used savings and secured finance to purchase the building.
To be able to create a space that feels like home and invites people in we plan to renovate those parts of the building that are in need of a little update. This would include both practical aspects such as sound proof doors and kitchen fit out as well as cosmetic upgrades like paint and furniture.
Importantly, we hope to upgrade the shared rooftop terrace to both serve the residents in the building and also use for Genlife and social outreach events.
The target of 50K will help us to achieve these goals.
How can you give?
As you consider making a financial gift please know that you will be sowing into Kingdom initiatives and helping us to continue our long term commitment to the Canberra City.
Please see below the information on how to give – we believe that this is an amazing opportunity and want to make sure you have the chance to partner in making it happen.
