Proposed Second Level for Ministry Centre

Here is the latest on The Lakes’ Ministry Centre. The Ministry Centre team have concluded we should proceed and build the proposed 2nd level in the initial build. This will provide us with approximately 400 meters of additional open indoor space (particularly useful for youth work in poor weather and in winter months). This changes the Development Application. Our preliminary informal discussion with the Council have us feeling fairly positive about approval. The Ministry Centre team have sourced a report from a Traffic Consultant with the view this change will not generate additional vehicles.

Please pray for the next phases: the adjusting the Development Application; the subsequent detailed planning ready for tender; engagement of architect; and preparing a building contract.

The finances towards the Ministry Centre are tracking well. May averaged $15,000 and we have received just over $140,000 to date this year. Let’s praise God, recognising His blessing so far, thanking Him for all His kindness. Ask that God will overcome any hurdles so that this Ministry Centre will be a powerful tool to reach our community with the good news of Jesus to God’s glory.

At this stage, we are still maintaining our goal being able to move to Pioneer Avenue for
Christmas 2018.
