VISION PRESENTATION - WATCH

GIVING TARGET: MYR20,000

THE PERSECUTED CHURCH

With all that's happened in the Middle East and North Asia over the last few years between Covid-19 and war, we want to stand with the Christians who face daily hardship of persecution for their faith. We are standing with them again in prayer and financial support to enable ministers and churches to continue to care for their congregations but also reach many who've been displaced due to war, poor economic conditions, or physical and logistical persecution because of their faith. So far, MYR5,000 has been distributed by C3 Reach which is directed by Ps Richard Green who spends significant portions of time in this region to equip and encourage their work.

C3 CAMBODIA

Ps Theany and Chanreas oversee 3 congregations in Cambodia and are doing amazing work to draw in the community through tuition classes, food programmes, use of their building, and outreach programmes. They've been bold to purchase and renovate venues to gather in and are seeing God do miracles in a country with less than 1% who profess to be Christian.  This year we sent them MYR15,000 so far to further equip them in their work. They purchased an electric drum kit, were able to pay staff and purchase food for the food relief programme.

 

There will be an opportunity to join them in a mission 22-28 April 2024.

SAVINGS TARGET: MYR60,000

FUTURE SAVINGS

God has done amazing things in our midst and our congregation has risen in amazing generosity with venue moves and equipment purchases in the past.

But as we mature and look ahead we want to ensure that we are setting aside a portion of our income towards the future so that we can take hold of any God-opportunities that are released to our church. One day we will need more space or God might lead us towards another location or ministry arm. So we want to be prepared as best as we can be financially.

 

LIVE TARGET: MYR220,000

SUSTAINING THE VISION

This portion will be used to sustain the existing vision through our venue. Keeping the doors open and all maintained well and ready for use by members of our church and the wider public. We hope to open a cafe through the week, play groups, recording and training opportunities etc.

HUB TO HOME

Thanks to your giving and that of a generous donor we were able to completely gut and rebuild the internal structure from floor to ceiling and it's made a huge difference already to the functionality of the spaces upstairs.

 

In August 2023 we opened the new Production Suite, a Prayer and Pastoral Care Lounge, Whizz Kids Class Room and Open Space, plus the new co-working room and offices are prepped and ready to furnish when the remaining pledges come in.

 

The co-working space will allow entrepreneurs or those still on a work from home set up to take advantage of working in community and also differentiate home time from work time. This is important for creativity and focus and will also allow for people outside our church to interact with the space. This widens our reach as a church and helps bring up the conversation of faith. The coffee shop downstairs will add to the atmosphere and environments for meetings and discussions and opens on Sunday 5 November 2023.

 

The Kids and Youth spaces will be versatile for use at weekends and throughout the week for play groups linked to our Growkids ministry. We've insulated the flooring to reduce the noise impact in the auditorium below with CEM board, acoustic foam and new carpet, opened up the space and improved the lighting. We also added CCTV, smoke detectors, emergency exit lighting and rewired the electrics and updated the security access panels.

Come and see it this Sunday if you haven't already!

 

 

FINANCIAL INTEGRITY

We continually seek to honour God and people with strong financial integrity. We anticipate being able to release the 2022 Financial report after the audit is complete in April 2023.

Our accounts are audited annually by Daniel Tee & Co. The Board signs-off the annual budget and receives quarterly reports to scrutinise as they see fit. Our records are maintained by an external book-keeper and two signatories are required for every transfer.
