After an extensive application process and wait of over twelve months, the church has been granted a Place of Worship planning permit.
This caps off a lengthy quest for a permanent home for the Adventist Samoan community in Melbourne. Started by Pr Eddie Erika in the early 2000’s, the Samoan church set a Conference church planting record, growing from one to nine metropolitan communities.
The North Melbourne Samoan Church received a building grant from the Division in 2018 with additional supporting funds coming from the Victorian Conference, which is pleased to support the Samoan community and recognises their significant efforts in spreading the Gospel to their community.
The church is located in Campbellfield, and preliminary pre-construction work is underway to convert the warehouse into a multipurpose church facility.
