104 The Hornet
We are really excited about our new home in the heart of Chichester, which will open towards the end of 2019. The works are about to begin in June to make the 500 square metre building fit for purpose. To get to this point has been the most incredible journey over the past 18 months with the fingerprints of heaven smudged all over it.
Our excitement stems from the God given vision we have for 104 The Hornet and possibilities it creates for new things to come to help those in need within our community. We are not building a home for ourselves but for the whole community with a focus on supporting some of the most vulnerable and marginalised.
This is an opportunity to grow what we do and reach further to those in need.
The funding has been raised from within the church community but also from some key partners and funders. The lead partner in this vision has been Store Property Investments Ltd whom own the site and to whom we are truly indebted. Our funding efforts to date mean that we are now over 80% funded for the whole project.
Over the past 5 years we have been a mobile church using schools, community centres and even a Grade 1 listed buildings to delver all we do as a church and for those beyond it. We will still use other sites around the city but the Hornet will become our focal point.
