Following many years of planning the redevelopment of Werribee Church has started.
Strategically situated on the crest of a hill on the main arterial road linking the two commercial precincts of Werribee city, the church building is the only physical Adventist presence between metropolitan Melbourne and Geelong.
Located in one of the fastest growing areas in Victoria, the redevelopment of the Werribee Church is intended to make this building a field ‘headquarters’ for the local region. It is planned that, joining Point Cook, many daughter congregations can be planted in nearby regions, launching from and being supported from this Werribee Church location.
The redevelopment project was the recipient of South Pacific Division Church Grants funding and has been supported by the Victorian Conference as a project of strategic Conference significance. Many generous church members and supportive project consultants have donated their time, skills and professional services to help move this project forward. The local congregation has also contributed through their fundraising efforts and their commitment to seeing the Mission potential of this project delivered.
The new building is planned to seat 220 people with potential to expand to accommodate more that double that. The facility will also provide ‘hot-desk’ offices for local pastors and Bible workers, meeting rooms, a dedicated children’s play area as well as a large multi-purpose auditorium and annex.
The foundation slab was poured on the 19th of February 2019, and construction works continue to progress quickly. Please pray for the quick and successful delivery of this important project. May it be a ‘lighthouse’ that serves the local community and promotes the Mission of the Church in this vital urban corridor.
