CAN YOU HELP US?

 

We are a new church but we have a big heart for our city, to see strong people, in strong families, living with love as a strong city. We will do this by meeting the day to day needs of those struggling in out city, rich and poor, seeing their lives and relationships restored and we need a venue to see that happen. Can you help?

Here is more information about our need:

 

 

WHO ARE WE?

We are City Arise Church, a new church plant started on the 14th of October 2018. We are passionate lovers of Jesus and passionate about taking that love outside the sunday services and into our city in practical ways, meeting needs and healing hurts. We are only 7 months old but have already accomplished so much in our city. We put on a Christmas dinner for 250 homeless and struggling in our city, we have made over 1000 frozen meals for those in need, we serve as volunteers at lunch programs for the needy every week and recently cleaned up the homeless campsite in Rockingham, taking away 10 large trailer loads of rubbish and enjoying a meal together with the homeless in their campsite.

 

This is just a start. We have been working on programs and structure to hopefully start a residential drug rehab in our city by the end of 2019 and a womens shelter by the end of 2020. We are starting a school of ministry in July 2019 to equip people from lots of churches in our city to be passionate followers of Jesus. We aim to start relationship and money courses, along with business courses and career planning workshops, free music lessons and so much more, all to bless every area of our city. We believe Gods hand and favour is on our city, and for our city to thrive, we need to be willing to do all we can to meet the needs of our city. We believe Rockingham will be a city that other cities all across the world will look to as a model for how a healthy city operates.

We are committed to seeing our city thrive in all areas.

WHAT BUILDING DO WE CURRENTLY USE?

We are currently blessed to have use of the Police and Community Youth Centre (PCYC) Rockingham on Sundays. This involved setting up and packing down for each service. After September, there are a number of Sundays before the end of the year that PCYC need their venue, so this means we cant operating a regular Sunday service from there past the 9th of September 2019. 

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are looking for a building to use by September that has the following essential features and below it is a list of desired features that are not essential:

Essential Features in a building:

  • Location in the City of Rockingham

  • Minimum 1 year occupancy/lease

  • Room for a Church Service that can accomodate 150 people sometime on a weekend (Saturday or Sunday, morning or afternoon)

  • Seating for 150 people

  • Additional two rooms for children's ministry

  • Mens and Womens toilets

  • Small kitchen to enable coffee/tea making

  • (We have our own sound system and projector so that is not required)

 

Desired Features in a building (not essential):

  • Operating our main service on a Sunday

  • Some storage for ministry equipment

  • Options to use the building during the week (day and night) for different community and discipleship ministries

  • Close proximity to bus stop

  • Kitchen with cooking facilities for community meals

  • Ability to leave sound equipment setup

  • Seating for 200+ people

  • Tables for community meals

  • Office space during the week

WHAT CAN WE AFFORD?

To be honest - not much :). We are a small church and can afford to pay something, but we cannot afford to pay a large lease on a large building currently, our dream is that big but our finances are not. We believe God has a great building for us that will be affordable for us as a church, an opportunity that is not advertised on real estate websites, but comes from the heart of someone wanting to bless what we as a church stand for and what we as a church are doing in our city. Gods provision through his people with the same heart for our city as we do.

CAN YOU HELP?

If you believe you can help in some way, please get in touch with Greg Lake on 0422148599 or email greg.lake@cityarise.church

Even if you can't help with a building, please spread the word in our city about our need, we believe God works miracles and the building he has for us will be a miracle and bring Glory to our great King Jesus.

Love from all of us at City Arise Church
