Launch for grand community hub

AN OFFICIAL launch for a Skegness church is set to take place in its newly renovated site in North Parade.

Many guests have been invited to see the progress, The Storehouse team have made on phase one of the project of the building, formally known as The Street.

As reported, (November 9), The New Day Christian Centre, formally based in Lincoln Road, felt last January, that it had outgrown its building and once a large enough venue came on to the market, it bought it and decided to move the church and also rename it.

It is hoped the new site will create a community hub, revive the north end of the town and bring the large building back into prominence.

The launch night is set to take place next Saturday, (February 25) from 7pm where guests are urged to attend early to avoid missing a chance to see singer/songwriter Paul Bell from Sheffield and also an array of tasty snacks that will be on offer.

“It’s very exciting that phase one is complete and we can’t wait for everyone to see the progress we have made,” said church pastor, David Middleton.

The team have been working on the state-of-the-art coffee shop which will sell The Storehouse’s own special coffee blend, the reception and foyer area of the site which has cost around £32,000 so far.

“Money for the project has been raised by a lot of giving and our own church funds, lots of sources have gone into the funding of the first stage,” added David.

It is hoped stage two of the project will be completed by late March to early April which will include a soft play area, hair salon, modern kitchen, toilet facilities, dining room and a 200 seat auditorium, among other things.

Also on the cards for the venue in stage three, will be a 1,000 seater auditorium which is hoped will be used for large conferences and entertainment,

The total build has been estimated to cost in the region of £1m and is due to be completed later this year.
