Kenmore Campus ready for the future

In August 2014, the first sod was turned on the site that had been our home for more than 50 years, setting up the transformation to take it to the future, and making it home for the next 50.

With the Head Office building and multi-level carpark completed by December 2016, the second stage community centre at the front of the site will be completed in time to host its inaugural events in November—our 134th Annual General Meeting and annual Ministers Forum.

Development Manager Barry Innes is excited to see the final touches placed on the transformation of the site.

“As the landscaping progresses, we look forward to having iconic flame trees featured in tree plantings, along with canopy and ground cover species designed to provide food and habitat for native animals. When complete, the visual amenity of the site, its street appeal, will be far more pleasing,” Barry said.

“Once mature, the landscaping will allow the buildings on the hillside site to ‘settle in’ and fit with the local green environment of Kenmore.”

To contribute to social and community transformation, a Mission Coordinator for the campus has been appointed. Steve Webster will work to make our Kenmore site into a truly integrated community.

Steve will be available for pastoral support and to explore the creation of a new faith community and enterprise functions for the campus including the café and function spaces. He will also seek opportunities within our local Kenmore community to extend our mission.

“I’m very excited to take on this role and the opportunities ahead to serve our local community through this fantastic multi-purpose facility,” Steve said. “It’s our strong commitment that the Kenmore Campus facility represents the Mission and Values of our organisation as together we seek to bring the light of Christ into our communities.”
