Fundraising objectives 

  1. To build a large multi-purpose hall by replacing the existing Fun Factory which was built in 1950s as a youth hall. The current hall is now inadequate, poorly insulated and does not take full advantage of its potential. The proposed building is designed to be a venue for youth and childrens’ activities including sports, as well as other church and community functions such as keep fit, sports, music, meals etc.
  2. To build a two storey suite of rooms attached to the Sports Hall on the space currently occupied by a temporary dilapidated portacabin, which is currently used as the pastor’s office. This would comprise of three offices, three meeting / counselling rooms, considerable storage areas, a small kitchen for beverages, additional toilets and a shower. Both floors of the development will be accessible from the existing buildings, and all work will be confined within the footprint of the property.
